here is another thought... My husband's family is huge... almost all over 6ft. Our younger daughter complains HER legs hurt, and she is just 3. (she used to wake up crying at night as a older baby and then as a toddler before she was able to TELL us, I think thats what it was..)..ANYWAY.. he swears to massage them with rubbing alcohol for a few minutes (watch for any BOO-BOOS) and it seams to work. My pedi said she couldn't see where the alcohol would help, but I have tried it both ways, and I'll tell ya, it makes a difference. Hers is a long throbbing pain, and some nights if she wakes more then 2x before I go to bed, I give her the childrens Ibuprofen too.
