My daughter (4 years old) has been waking up at night with awful growing pains in her legs. Last night she woke up 4 or 5 times... each time in hysterics and unable to calm down for 30-45 minutes and I just don't know how to make them stop or help her feel better :( I try rubbing her leg and that seems to help temporarily but then she seems to just wake up again 15-30 minutes later in pain and crying.
Not being able to make her feel better gives me terrible anxiety :( Not to mention I have awful insomnia and each time I almost fall asleep she wakes back up. That on top of not sleeping the past few nights cuase of DH leaving and I'm at my witts end.
Has anybody else dealt with this in their childen and have any good tips/advice on how to help her? A friend of mine suggested giving her ibuprofen before bed but I do not like to give her anything unless she absolutely needs it so I don't really want to do that if it is not needed.
Thanks for your help!
