My son is 2 and had pretty swollen lymph nodes on the side of his neck.  We went to our pediatrician yesterday, he said tat probably what they are (swollen nodes) but just to make sure, he wanted blood work done. Has anyone else experience swollen nodes in their babies? How long does it take for the swelling to go down?

A girl I look after had the same thing. Blood work came back totally fine so they did an ultrasound and it showed nothing abnormal. It showed up when she was 2 and it took about 1.5 years to go away.

This generally means that the child is fighting a nearby infection, like a virus or a cold.They can grow to about 2 centimetres

Surprised the doctor never told you that.

He did tell me that it was probably because he was sick a couple weeks ago. I left that part out of my post. Oops! I just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced anything similar to my situation.

Yeah, generally they do only swell up while fighting an infection. But this little girl I look after had quite enlarged ones without being sick. Her doctor just monitored blood work and ultrasounds of the area and nothing was every wrong. Then, eventually, they went back down. It was strange, but ultimately okay.
