my son is 24 months old and for the past few nights he keeps waking up complaining that hes feet & legs are hurting which i think maybe cramp / growing pains, does anyone know what i can give him to ease the pain i do rub hes legs to help but i wondered if there is some kid of cream to get to the pain faster.
My daughter who is 6 has done this since I can remember and it goes in spurts. She will wake up for about 3 nights in a row and then it might be a month or two and she does it again. I just give her a regular dose of Motrin and it seems to really really help her. We too rub her legs and usually within about 20 min. of the motrin, she is back asleep and doesn't complain again. Good luck.
