For children under 12 you should check with your pediatrician before giving her some TUMS. There are some over the counter stomach cures for children (such as Mylanta for Kids) - if she isn't feeling better soon, you can certainly give her a product such as this.

If she starts to feel worse, runs a fever, has sharp pain in her lower right side, etc., then you should call her pediatrician ASAP.
