Growth Spurts in Toddler

My 2 1/2 yr old has been complaining about his ankle hurting. The doctor ran tests and says it's due to growth spurts. He wakes up in the middle of the night crying. I have given him liquid Tylenol for toddlers per the doctors advice; however, was wondering if anybody else was experiencing this. If so do you have any other suggestions that I can try that as possibly worked for you?

  • I would keep asking. The doc might be right but I've never heard of this or expereinced this with any of my children. Good luck :)
