    Hi Patricia,


    A normal blood pressure for a two-year-old child is around 88/42, but varies based on height.  Here's a link to a blood pressure chart for children.  If you're concerned about your child's blood pressure, you shoudl definitely talk to your pediatrician about the symptoms you're noticing. It may be that you're reading stress responses from your child that are making you believe he/she is having blood pressure issues. Or you may have heard your child's blood pressure readings at the doctor and felt they were high? Either way, your doctor will be your best source of information on what's normal and healthy for your child.
