Well, it never developed into a cold, but she has been extremely fussy for the last week. Doesn't sleep well, won't nap for more than 30 minutes at a time and can't stay up long without having a total meltdown because of being overtired...

Please give her a dose of Cal-P and report back.
 
fitness 8 years ago
I gave her one 5 days ago and no difference.

Are you able to calm her by carrying her.

If not, how can you calm her.

How is her stool.

How is her digestion.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Yes, I can sometimes calm her temporarily by carrying and bouncing her. I think that she has been more gassy and that interferes with her sleep because the fussiness comes on suddenly, from digestive issues or tiredness. Her stool is usually once a day, sometimes it is orange and then I can tell she was uncomfortable. Other times it is seedy yellow or greenish.

Please give her a dose of Chamomila 30c or 200c, whatever you have.

Thank you!

Hi,
I have given her chamomilla 30c on two occassions and it doesnt seem to be making any difference. She screams and screams at nap and bed time...when well-rested she is still active, but happy, engaged, and smiley. As you can see, she is rarely well-rested and still won't sleep more than 1/2 hr if she does finally take a nap. Her sleeping is my main concern. On the rare occasion she does take a good nap, she is very happy, and wakes very happy in the morning.

Try a dose of Colocynth 30c or 200c, whichever is available, just one dose.

It is not helping because the problem is not usually gas. She gets SO wound up and agitated and then her little body won't stop moving and she gets crazy and starts screaming, very angry. If I pick her up, she continues to scream (unless rocked very vigorously) and claws at me. This is the same thing my son did and he did not sleep for 5 years (he is 6). I cannot go through that again. I am traumatized form it. She is SO agitated. Cannot relax. Takes 3-4 hours to get her to sleep for 30 minutes. This is intolerable and I can't even deal with it anymore. I CANNOT go through this AGAIN.

You had written about reflux & gas. Anyways. I am assuming you tried Colocynth and it failed.

Please give her daily routine for one typical day.

As of now all I can see is that she starts fussing before bed and swaddling helps.
 
fitness 8 years ago
If this is the same thing your son did- till age 5???
after he was able to talk, could he tell you what
kind of pains he was having?

Was he also wound up, screaming, moving around till
age 5?

I have reviewed the case again. There is something which is not letting her sleep and we have to pinpoint that.

Please give her daily routine for one typical day.

While she is sleeping, how is her sleep.

Does she snore, if yes, is it during inhale or exhale.

Why do you think she wakes up, difficulty breathing, dreams..?

Does she become fussy say 30 min before sleeping time or after you lay her down.

Try putting her to sleep as upright as possible.

Did your son have laryngomalacia or any other problems.
