Hi there,<br><br>
My 2 1/2 year old son has been telling me that his knees are sore, then today it was his foot and he has been in a bit of a mood the last couple of days. He is a big boy, in the 95 percentile (if that means anything). I am putting it down to growing pains, he doens't show any other signs of being ill or anything. Do your kids tell you of aching body parts? and do you put it down to growing pains.<br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>
Denny

my dd is always telling me her back hurts. then again, I'm always telling ehr my back hurts (as in, Daddy has to carry you, mommy's back hurts) so I usually think it's sympathy pains.<br><br>
not that that's the case with your ds, just thought I'd share.

my son get these (or what me and dh both think are growing pains). Dh says he still can remember getting growing pains when he was younger and they did really hurt, i never remember getting any so i wonder if it's "a boy thing" but a warm bath or a cool wash clothe usally helps him out

My ds, now 10 has always told us about knee and other pain since he was at least 4 or 5 that I recall. Both I and my dh don't recall any growing pains but we all see the same chiropractor and she says it is normal and assured us there really are growing pains. I didn't know what to think or say when he would tell us cause there was nothing to do until he say the chiro(we go in for regular adjstments several times a year)more if needed. I was happy tho that my ds told us and continued to tell us even tho in the beginning we didn't know what to do....... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
