Dd (16 months old) has been eating all day long for a couple days, so we assumed a growth spurt was occuring. Then last night, she was cranky when we put her to bed and kept saying "leg" over and over while crying. She didn't appear to be having a charley horse - her crying wasn't immediate-severe pain crying. It was more nagging pain / discomfort type crying. I rubbed her legs a little and she finally drifted off to sleep. This morning, she woke up crying again at 5:30 and wouldn't get back in bed (she's never done this - usually she wakes very happy and calm and wants to lay in bed a long time and nurse and cuddle). She's been crying off and on all morning and is now napping. I wonder if they can experience leg pain during a growth spurt. I used to have a lot of leg pain as a kid, but I don't remember it happening this young. Anyone ever had this happen with your toddler?
