18 months old with stomach cramps

My 18 months old son doenst sleep at all at night, he toss and turn like he has colic. Is it possible that it could be colic/stomach cramps at his age.

It would be most unusual for your little toddler to still have colic at his age. He may still ahve a reflux problem and it may be the stomach acid which is causing this discomfort. Try giving him Gaviscon Liquid 5ml at night before he goes to bed and see if this helps him. If it does not then it would be best to ask you doctor or paediatrician to see your son.
