Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I am sorry to hear your little one has a slightly hard stomach

Things to do:
- Get her moving, even laps around the house with her size will encourage gi motility and stomach emptying
- Massage her belly with her chest up higher in order to help her relieve any gas in her stomach and pat to see if that releases any gas
- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg/pound every 12 hours to help reduce stomach acids which can add to the bloating

Hopefully this will allow her to feel a little more comfortable tonight but walking is the key to emptying of the stomach, reducing gas buildup and any abdominal cramping

Please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight, I hope she is feeling better soon!

If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask! If you would like to accept my answer, please press RATE OUR CONVERSATION at the top of your screen (I am not compensated in any other way). Bonuses are always welcome. Thanks!
