DD 3.5 has been getting what seem to be leg cramps in her thigh. It comes on suddenly and she says it hurts and it feels "bent". Does this sounds normal?

My eldest dd used to complain of what she called "growing pains". This went on for at least a yr and disappeared only when I started giving her vitamin D and cal/mag. Not sure if this is what's going on w/your dd? Has your dd taken any falls recently? Toddlers can get micro-fractures though I'm not sure that this is common in the thigh?

Once she stopped nursing she was never really a big milk drinker and I realized yesterday that she isn't really drinking any milk these days. She eats lots of yogurt and cheese but she doesn't seem to be taking in much liquid. I think tomorrow I am going to work on getting her to drink a bit more and see if that helps.
