Dear Swati. I too would say that big bellies in little children are normal. To add to what the fellow parents have said above, I would say is that since your daughter is only 2 years, she has not completely lost all her baby fat. As she grows, she will become leaner (look thinner) and taller. Her body shape is likely to even out in another year or so. My son is 2 years and 3 months old and has suddenly lost weight from his tummy area. His torso looks too thin compared to how it was a few months back. But since he eats well and has sufficient activity, we are not concerned. So give it time :)

Hi Swati, Big bellies are generally ok as long as they are not indicative of any underlying problem... does your child every complain of stomach aches, ache in her lower back, ache in the abdomen area or the uterus area etc. If she does, it may do well to consult with a specialist. Otherwise, ensure she gets enough exercise for the children of her age... going up and down the slides, swinging, etc. Hope this helps.

Hi Swati! Big belly in toddlers is usually normal. But if u think it is bloated it could be due to following causes: 1. Constipation for which u need to look for child's bowel movement, pain while passing stools. Remedy: keep the child hydrated, give lots of fibre. 2. Bloating related to indigestion of food: such as lactose intolerance. Remedy: u need to get tests done to reach diagnosis. 3. gluten intolerance: which is lack of enzyme to digest gluten in body. Remedy: u need to look for food sources to which child has sensitivity. 4. celiac disease: which leads to pain in stomach and discomfort. Please get a thorough check up from gastroenterologist. Hope this works!

If i was in your place i would consult a well known gastroenterologist instead of asking a regular pediatrician. Please visit one as soon as possible. He/She is the only one who can help u with an answer. Don't panic its not some major thing to be much concerned about & moreover it may not be any issue at all. I am asking u to visit just to know the details of the issue & be relieved by knowing exactly what it is n why it is like that...
