One of the best ways that you can help make sure that your toddler avoids leg cramps is to make sure that they are drinking plenty of fluids. You can also give them a glass of warm milk just before putting them to bed to help avoid leg cramps as well. Milk is helpful because of the calcium that is in it.

When a leg cramp does appear, the best thing that you can do is to massage the area. This will help relieve some of the pain and loosen up the muscle. You can also stretch the leg gently to help speed up the process. Oftentimes a warm bath, heating pad or hot water bottle is helpful.

You should also make sure that your toddler is eating the right types of foods in order to make sure that they are getting the right amount of nutrients. They should be eating a well-rounded diet that is filled with vitamins A and E as well as calcium.
