    Question Do your LO's get growing pains and cry ?

    Just wondering if any of you's have experience your LO's getting growing pains and crying and being extremely fussy from them ?

    I havn't noticed it in my LOs yet, but I still clearly remember the pain from when I was like 8. I would curl into a ball and hold my legs and cry it hurt soooo much.
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    My DD does it at night, she is 5. I tend to give her a half dose of tylenol and rub her back. She goes to sleep but fitfully, with a lot of leg movement. When I ask her she points to her calf muscle at the back as where it hurts.

    Yes. My dd is also 5. She says the pain is in her shins. Exactly where I remember I used to have pain, too.

    I posted a while back about my 5 year old DD waking in the night with foot pain and wondered if maybe it was growing pains as well. I can't think of what else it could be!

    Jake gets them all the time, mostly at night or early in the morning. He screams, cries and holds his legs tight. I rub, massage and apply pressure to help him. He hates taking meds so I avoid tylenol/advil.

    His are in his shins, calves, and feet.

    I've heard that heat (hot water bottles, towels out of the dryer etc) can help them but we haven't tried it

    Yep, we do leg massages for him. Sometimes if it is really bad we'll give tylonol before bed. We expect he'll be tall like DH and he remembers being in so much pain he couldnt sleep.

    DSS has not had them as of yet, however my ex's brother used to get them all the time around 4-5 years old, we used to do leg massages for him and that seemed to at least subside the pain enough to let him sleep

    I can remember myself also (and that was a very long time ago). I can only remember my daughter complaining of leg pain and not the boys. My friends daughter is bothered by leg pain regularly and finds having them rubbed down with lotion (any type) helps.

    I remember leg pains..I too curled up and cried as I didn't know what to do with myself. I've since been told that they were related to a milk intolerance.
    My dd, is and will be tall. I've been watchful for these leg pains. She doesn't consume dairy so I'm very curious if this theory holds water.
