Reply to Active Toddler and Leg Pain

Our daughter is the same. Started as legs, now mostly her feet. Pediatrician and a podiatrist have both said growing pains at this point and we have supportive shoes with temporary orthotic inserts (real ones are expensive and only when necessary). Apparently evening is bad because that’s when lactic acid settles. We rub her feet and have taught her how as well. On really bad nights, we give her Tylenol, especially if she wakes up in the middle of the night. Worth getting looked at, but your son probably just is similar. Apparently it passes at some point, but is hard now
