15 month old sleep issues

Hello. My 15 month old daughter has never slept through the night. She wakes up every two hours (sometimes hourly). She is a breastfed baby but also eats solids. I'm exhausted and I'm sure she is as well. I've tried letting her cry, just cuddling her, etc.. Sometimes she'll sleep a long stretch but reverts back to the frequent night wakings. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks so much. Please see answers below:
1. Age, weight, height
15 months, 19 lbs., approx. 24'
2. Physical appearance of the child e.g. thin, chubby, tall, short
Slim with chubby cheeks. Very petite compared to peers.
3. Describe the nature of the child (shy, headstrong etc. give details)
Outgoing, likes to socialize, talkative, very smart, silly, very headstrong and determined, when told not to do something, she'll do it anyway, gets aggressive when tired or hungry, shows compassion when someone is sad or hurt.
4. Have the growth milestones (e.g. teething, standing, walking, talking etc. )achieved early, on time or late
Started talking early, first teeth arrived late (around 10 months), walked late (around 13 months)
5. What are the symptoms of the health problem
Very restless sleeper. Wakes frequently, every 1-3 hours nightly. Has only slept a 5 hour or more stretch a few times. Has always been a restless sleeper, even as a newborn. Naps tend to be sporadic, can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 1.5 hours.
6. What makes the problem better without using medicines
Has yet to be determined.
7. What makes the problem worse without using medicines
Constipation tends to cause a more restless sleep.
8. How is the child behaving emotionally during this problem
She seems anxious or angry. can turn into hysterics if I don't tend to her when she wakes up.
9. How long the problem has been there
Since birth.
10. What is the reason of the problem in mother’s view
I'm still trying to figure it out. I thought it was gas/digestion issues. She used to co-sleep so it could be a dependency on nursing to sleep (no self-soothing techniques). Maybe teething. There really could be a number of reasons that I can't yet pinpoint.
11. How is the child’s thirst & appetite
Normal thirst. Quite a big appetite. She likes to eat often.Very snacky.
12. What does the child like to eat
Loves fruit, rice snacks, some meat, some vegetables.Rice. Potatoes. Yogurt.

Seems to be weird with some textures.

None that I've noticed.
15. How is the stool & urine
Clear urine. Stool varies from very hard to normal softness.
16. How is the child’s sleep
Already described.
17. What is the child afraid of (animals, insects, darkness, alone etc.)
Being alone maybe...Sometimes she shows a fear of dogs but likes them from afar.
18. Where does the child sweat normally
Back of head.
19. How much does the child sweat (little, moderate, a lot)
Moderate amount.
20. Any problems with nose, throat, ears, chest
None that I know of.
21. Is the child normally cold or hot
Hot. She doesn't like to be covered when sleeping. She also doesn't like wearing socks.
22. Was it a planned pregnancy, if not, how did you feel on finding about it
Yes, it was a planned pregnancy.
23. How was the pregnancy of the mother (morning sickness, bleeding, happy, sad, tense etc)
Excellent pregnancy. Quite happy. A little tense about the birth since a previous birth was an emergency c-section.
24. How is the relationship of mother & father
Fair. Mostly a peaceful loving relationship with some conflict but nothing severe.
25. What diseases run in your family (mother & father)
Diabetes.

Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing what you think.

Your remedy is: Hyoscyamus Niger 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take two doses 12 hrs apart. Just two doses. Not daily.
Report back in 7 days with changes observed.

WHAT IS A DOSE:
If remedy is Pills/Pellets:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in your mouth.

If remedy is liquid:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.

FOR CHILDREN:
If the child can't safely suck on the pill/pellets then one dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of cooled, boiled water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

TIME OF DOSE:
First dose: At night before sleeping.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you.

PRECAUTIONS:
If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.
During the treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

HOMEOPATHIC AGGRAVATION
Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement for all your health problems e.g.
Headache: 30% better
Low energy level: 50% better
Anxiety: 40% better
Sadness: No change
Depression: Worse
And so on list all your complaints.

IF I DON’T REPLY:
If you don’t hear back from me within 24 hrs, it is likely that the forum’s email didn’t work. You can send me an email by clicking my username.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

HOW TO ORDER:
You can get the remedies from this site or various other online sources, use Google search for it.

Thank you, I'll try that and let you know how it goes!

Hello. So, it's been about a week since my daughter too the remedy. She now wakes up once between 8pm and 6 am. This is a HUGE improvement since she used to wake up 3-5 times. She occasionally will wake up and cry but it doesn't last long so no intervention on my behalf is required. I also put a salt lamp in her room to give her a little bit of light at night instead of being in the dark. Not sure if this has helped as well. Anyway, thank you so much for your suggestion.
Sleep improvement: 80%

Just observe for now and report back in one week. No more doses.

Based on response after a week we will decide what to do next.
