8 month old trouble settling to sleep

My 8 month old has trouble settling to sleep. She will fall asleep in my arms and sit up with her eyes closed. I find her several times a night in the crawling position. She is now pulling herself up on her crib. Since birth, she has been the kind of baby who becomes overtired and as a result become almost hyper. She becomes difficult to hold. When breastfeeding, she often flaps one arm. She has recently started to crawl. I don't drink coffee, but I do eat a bit of chocolate and have an occasional cola. She has never slept more than a five hour stretch. On the flip side, she has a relaxed personality. She is friendly and smiles often. Her face lights up when I enter the room. She is an absolute delight. She began solids at six months and has taken to food with ease. I have tried mag carb, chamomilla, and merc sol. Any advise would be appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Stop all medicines & give her one single dose of CYPRIPEDIUM 200c, just before making her to sleep.
Do not repeat at least for a week's time.We shall review only after a week.

I can't thank you enough. It took four nights to see improvement. Now she goes to bed at 7pm, wakes up at midnight for a feeding and goes back to sleep until 5:30 or sometimes as late as 7am. It has truly been life altering. She is happier and I feel like a human being again!

Thank God & Homoeopathy. I am just a source.
When she wakes up in the night feed her some water in place of feed. That will improve her digestion also. All the best & thank you for the feedback.

She is now worse than ever. She is cutting four teeth. In the day, she is mostly an angel, but at night, she does not want me to put her in her crib. Initially, when I put her to sleep there is little protest, but when she first wakes up around 10:30-11:00, she is hysterical if I put her back in her crib.
If I bring her into my bed, she sleeps so restlessly and awaken around 4-5 am wanting to play. Should I give her another doseof cypredium? thank you in advance.

About a week and a half ago and I can't say that it helped. But, two teeth just came through th gum in the last 72 hrs.

CYPRIPEDIUM 200C that you have is it in liquid form?
nawazkhan last decade
No. It was pellets. I disolved in water

Hi, Please dissolve only 1 pellet of the remedy in one spoonful of mineral water and give to the child. Only one dose please.

Many prayers for your child's good health.

My daughter continues to wake during the night. I rock her, breastfeed, or try and just pat her back. Last night, it was two hours. I repeated the cypripidium dose, but it only seems to help, on the night I give it to her. SHe usually wakes at 2:30 and sometimes at 11:00. She is in good health, except for a little runny nose. I do not feel any new teeth cutting. She turned one a few days ago and began to take her first steps. She is a happy and affectionate baby. When I put her down intialy at night, she goes to sleep with out a fuss. When she wakes during the night, she has difficulty returning to sleep. After one full year of no sleep, I am exhausted.
