No homeopathic remedy is working for children.sleep problem

Here I will attempt to explain my case in detail
I have two daughters first daughter is two years five months old and second daughter is nine months old
Both were born by normal delivery did not have any complications the mother is in good health played sports all her life she is 28 years old now
Both girls have serious sleep issues where they wake up at least three to four or even five times a night
The older girl
2 years 5 months old
Gave her passiflora incarnata Q up to 60 drops but no luck
Then started her on cyperpedium 30 but no luck
Then gave her chamomilla 30 , little luck but again after few days she wakes up 2_3 times.
Craves sweets a lot so now local homeopathic doctor prescribed her
Argentum nitricum 30 (3 drops 4 times a day, it's been 5 days but no changes, cravings are same and sleep issues is there).

Younger daughter:

9 months old: 19.6 pounds.
Still being breastfed and ears pretty much all the solid foods that we eat.
Wakes up 3_4_5 times a night.sometimes mom feeds her and she wakes up half hour later, not wet diaper, not hungry.
She is teething so we are giving her bc_21 tabs and it's helping
We gave her drop of chamomilla as well couple of times a day but no help and cyperpedium but no luck.

Both girls wake up few times a night, and when they sleep they are in deep sleep wake up just with walking the hardwood floor and due to that their mother is now totally sleepless and exhausted.she in super stress mode. Local homeopathic doctor few days ago prescribed

Cocculus indica 30 1st n 3rd week
Lycopodium 30 2ND and 4th week
2 drops 4 times a day

We have started but so far no changes.

I'm also tired and sleepless but I doubt care about myself if kids start sleeping through the night.

I know homeopathic meds work but so far in my case nothing seems to be working.

Can someone kindly look into this case and offer hopefully some concrete solution?

Thank you for your time and help

What was the exact response to Chamomila

How many doses were given

Stop all remedies, if its a genetic issue, it won't yield to random remedies, it requires a carefully selected remedy

Stop Arg-N, its not the remedy.

Chamomilla 30 _ 2 drops three times a day. After giving it for 2 or three days she slept through the night in her own room in her bed. We were super excited. We continued the same dose to make sure that she sleeps through the following nights too. But next night she woke up couple of times. And every night after that up 2_3 times. Random times.
So I went to local homeopathic doctor and he said use argentum nitricum 30 as it will eliminate or really minimize sweet cravings and also help with sleep.
So I got that and starred 4_5 days ago but zero change.

Both kids are not sleeping through and we are also sleepless and tired and cranky etc.

I'll stop all meds as of today then until hopefully a concrete solution is prescribed.individually for kids and my wife.

Please give her one dose of Tuberculinum 200c, just one dose and report back after 48 hrs.

One dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

For your wife, if she is breastfeeding then she has to respond to the below questionnaire and the selected remedy will effect the baby also:

• Homeopathy works only if you give truthful answers, no matter how awkward or intimate. If you don’t want to do that, it’s better you stop here and don’t proceed.
• Please reply to all that is being asked and give details.
• Short answers such as Yes/No/Normal are not helpful.
• I want answers which explain the What, When, Where, Why, Better by & Worse by.
• Example: I have a sore throat (it explains the “what”), since 3 days (it explains “when”), on the left side of my throat (explains “where”), due to eating sour food (explains “why”), the pain is better when I drink warm tea (explains “Better by”), the pain is worse when I swallow food (explains “worse by”)
