My 6-year-old daughter often complains of tummy pain after drinking water. She only drinks boiled water at room temp. What's the cause and what to do?

In brief: What is water source

What is your water source and why do you boil it? If your water source is well water, you may want it tested for heavy metals and nitrates.
Tap water may also have heavy metals if you are in a community with lead pipes. Consider filtering your water using a water filter. Otherwise does your daughter gulp down her water? Try to have her drink her water slowly.
