Feed her earlier: If your daughter is having pain with late meals, perhaps you should feed her earlier, and not give her anything after 7. In fact, eating close to bedtime has been shown to decrease the quality of sleep and lead to weight gain. In general it is best not to eat within two hours of bedtime. Hope this helps!

You need to bring: Her to a medical provider soon! Stomach pain can be due to many causes like ulcers, stomach inflammation, gall bladder or pancreas disease etc. She needs an exam, some basic blood tests, and may even need an ultrasound or X-ray depending on her exam and lab findings.Do it soon to save your daughter ongoing pain

See specialist: A detailed history of the pain and what triggers her symptoms will be the prelude to seeing a specialist known as a pediatric gastroenterologist. Elimination of her bowels will be important to document-hard, soft, large or small caliber stool. Weight changes will be also scrutinized. Dietary history also important-missed meals or changes in diet.

Need GI: Take her to gastroenterologist, those kind of symptoms in a child need some investigation.
