Hello everyone, first of all I'd like to say that you have a very good forum with a lot of helpful advice and I hope I'm welcome here as a father. What I'm looking for advice on is that my three year old little girl has started complaining of back pain. What I think is going on is that my wife's back really does bother her and she complains that it hurts sometimes and I think our daughter might have picked up on it, kind of like monkey see monkey do. My wife distracted her and pressed in different spots on her back and she never flinched or showed any signs that her back was actually hurting. Could she just be mimicking my wife or is this something I should be worried about?

This sounds very normal. You should reassure you little one that mommy is ok (not sick) when her back hurts, but you could also give her some pointers on how to avoid back pain. My little girl would develop a tummy ache when she felt overwhelmed, left out, or bored. Teaching them how that area of the body works (back and spine in your case) and helping her with little stretches or exercises is a way of preventing future problems, helping her feel attended to, but not indulging in self made problems. It would be even better if Mommy and Daddy joined her in her routine. Never tell her her back does or does not hurt, and watch her range of motion to be sure that she is happy and active. It wouldn’t hurt to bring it up at her next well check, but if the pain is not regular or pointed there’s no reason to make any extra to do about it. Hope this was helpful!
