Hello, if your baby doesn't limp while walking,, walks normally, runs normally, able to sit and stand normally, don't worry. Simple electrolyte disturbances could cause night cramps, in that case feeding baby a tender coconut or ors solution, or milk with protein powder (has protein +vitamin +electrolyte) helps the baby, Sometimes kids my ask that to get parents attention without there knowledge, or consult pediatrician he will help you.
