restless child / resists sleep

My 5 year old is always fidgeting never stays still and resists sleep. She was oaky but since her twin sisters were born she went right backwards. Started using nappies at night, waking up at about 6.30/7 am and when I put her to sleep although she looks exhausted she stays awake for an hour or two before falling asleep. Of course as she is tired all the times she get naughty! She also has a dry skin problem. Can anyone help? I have tried serenite but it didn't work. Thanks

Sorry forgot to say that she also talks non stop if you let her!

Hi, is there anybody in there that can help my daughter? Or am I asking too much and maybe it's normal for her to be like this? I am worried, soon she will start school and if she attends like this she won't be bale to retain much information. Please help!-(

please try PULSATILLA 30C one dose and see if she sleeps well that night.

Hi Rishimba, it's been a long time and I have given my daughter pulsatilla 30C. She now goes to sleep without as much fuss and I thank you for this as I was getting desperate. She does however still wake up very early between 6 and 6.30 and she should really get up at about 8 o'clock. Could suggest any other remedy I could use? And shall I continue with the pulsatilla 30c? Thank you Gabi67

homeopathic remedies should not be given for long..

if the problem is sorted out, please discontinue.

if the problem recurs, please give one dose of a higher potency.

in your case, you can give one dose of pulsatilla 200c.

if you see relief, no point repeating, else once in a week for some weeks only.

Hi, have stopped giving her the pulsatilla and tried as you said 200cc once and she did sleep at least without waking in the night but still woke up at 6 am the next morning. I stopped as you said as it should be given once in a week but now she wakes in the middle of the night between 2 and 3 and stays awake a while then she wakes up again at around 6am. I am not sure how long she takes to go to sleep as I have given up checking on her, hoping that she would fall asleep by herself without the pressure. She looks so exhausted in the morning and throughout the day I really don't know what to do

try a dose of NUX 30C just before she sleeps.

Hi Rishimba, do you mean nux vomica? I forgot to say that she also has eczema in the inner of her legs and her left forearm. This is constant until we use steroids cream then it will go just to reappear a few weeks later. Thank you

Try syphilinum 30c single dose.

yes.. please try NUX VOM 30C one dose before sleeping.

please dont use steroid creams as these creams will suppress the disease inside.

based on the symptoms and personality of the child, homeopathic treatment would cure the eczema from the root.
rishimba last decade
thanks will try that, for how long?
gabi67 last decade
just for one or two nights..

note the changes..

if it works then you can repeat it whenever its required.

stop after 3 nights anyway.
