chamomilla for restlessness?? bad reaction


I have a 4 month old baby, who was born through a c-section and in his 2nd week developed reflux for more than one month he was treated with prescribed drugs which made him scared, not able to sleep deeply and constipated. About a month ago, he was treated with some Nat Phos 6x and other homeopathic medicine from a local homeopath. He improved gradually but he has never been able to sleep deeply or calmly. He was then given homeopathic Chamomilla but it is like the restlessness increased. He doesn't want to go to sleep, fights every time and wakes up 4-5 times during the night. Mostly between 3-5am. Is the chamomilla giving him a bad reaction? What would be the right homeopathic medicine for him?

Dear Acich,

What potency was used for chamomilla.

Please answer the following:
1) Baby fights ? explain that.
2) Are there any blisters in mouth ?
3) Does the child have any ear problem? slightly touch the outer ears and watch the facial expression...
4) How is the stool?
5) Do you breast feed the child? If yes i would ask seprate questions for you.
6) Does the child take the milk willingly and after some times vomit it?
7) Plz check if the babys first tooth is makeing an appearance :-)
8) Does he have fever?

If your baby is basically well, and gaining weight satisfactorily, then the likeliest cause for her vomiting is a problem with the valve at the top of her stomach. This valve is designed to hold the contents of the stomach in place and stop them escaping up the oesophagus (or gullet).

In babies this valve is immature and not very reliable, so sometimes after a feed (either immediately or some time later) a small puff of escaping wind can cause a jet of milk to come shooting out of a baby's mouth.

This problem, which is called gastric reflux, usually requires no treatment.

All you need is a plentiful supply of bibs for the baby and towels to protect your shoulder when you're burping after feeds!

In most babies the reflux problem will sort itself out by the time they're a year old. If reflux is causing very frequent vomiting, especially when this is accompanied by poor weight gain or flecks of blood in the vomit, then we need to look into the problem.

Dietry tips:
1)Boil two cups of water mixed with few cumin seeds for about five minutes. Cool and strain the solution. Finally, let the baby sip one or two teaspoons of this solution two times in a day. This helps a great deal in relieving Acid Reflux in babies
2)It is recommended that babies should be fed breast milk instead of artificial milk formulations because the former is easy to digest and hence serves as a good natural cure for Acid Reflux in babies. (Moreover, nursing mother should avoid having dairy products, animal proteins, citrus fruits, carbonated beverages and other acidic and high-fat foods that can trigger Acid Reflux due to food allergies or sensitivity)

Plz update .

Dear Nikkie

thank you for answering.

The potency of Chamomilla dilution is 1M, is written in the bottle, and it is given 1 x day, 3 drops.
1. Baby gets fussy and rubs his eyes to avoid falling asleep, then cries and then falls asleep.
2. He doesn't have any blisters in mouth
3. He touches his outer ear sometimes when he is fussy before falling asleep, never in other time. His face is eyes closed and like it bothers him.
4. He was having greenish stools, but today finally yellowish. He has been taking probiotics for constipation. Never blood in his stools.
5. I do breastfeed him.
6. He takes the milk willingly but doesn't eat to long, after he eats sometimes he smiles and happy. Others complains (makes sound but no cry).
7. I have noticed that he touches his gums a lot and bites his fingers drools all signals of teething, but not first tooth showing yet.
8. No fever

I do have a restricted diet, from all that you mention I still eat meat (I guess that is animal protein)

His reflux is somewhat controlled. Doesn't vomit anymore, he doesn't have pain anymore. At night sometimes coughing and doesn't sleep well, moves a lot and wakes up every 2hrs.

some correction...it is LM potency, I read it wrong in the bottle.

Dear Acich,

When was the medicine given? What was the potency used (ie: 0/1,0/2,0/3 etc).

Remedy seems OK.

Nikkie 6 years ago

I don´t know those other examples of potency that you put as examples. Sorry.

The medicine was given one night ago.

But thank you for your reply.
acich 6 years ago

Dear Acich,

Chamomilla LM dose is safe and there wont be any aggrevation or side effects.

For how long are you adviced to take the dose.

Nikkie 6 years ago

Dear Nikkie,

I was advised to give it for 4 nights. Yesterday, I gave it to him and he seemed more calm, he slept longer and deeper. It was his second day.

Dear Acich,

That is very good news :-).
Dont worry he is perfectly fine. You can complete the remainder doses and adhere to Homeopaths advice else this forum is always at your help.

Happy Parenting.

Dear Nikkie,

I am a little worried. My baby completed the doses like I was told 4 nights, when he slept 4hrs then would wake up every 2.5hrs, which was great improvement. However, on the 5th night without taking any chamomilla, he when back to waking up every hour, not being able to soothe himself and every time I put him in his crib, he wakes up after several times later. Is it something wrong with the chamomilla? I don´t think it worked. Please let me know what you think.

This means the chamomilla was only palliative. A better remedy needs to be found. Chamomilla may have been a close match but must have missed some important aspect of his problem.

You know that a remedy is palliating rather than curing when the symptoms return as soon as you stop it. Improvement on a homoeopathic remedy actually lasts for some time after the remedy is stopped when it is selected well.

Dear Acich,

Please give your child the following medicines for three days:

1) Chamomilla 30 (liquid dilution) in the morning 1 dose in a day.
2) Belladona 30 (liquid dilution) in the evening 1 dose in a day.

One dose : Add 1-2 drops of medicine in 3 tablespoon of water (make sure the water in use is filtered-boiled and is at room temp).

Update me on regular bases and watch the symptoms carefully.

Prayers for your childs good health.
