High Needs 10 month old sleep issues

I'm looking for advice for treating my high needs(super sensitive!) 10 month old son. My dr has suggested reflux meds for possible silent reflux but I am looking for a natural alternative. Since 4 months of age he is up every hr most nights to feed. (He is mostly on formula with some breastmilk). He will occasionally do a two-three hr stretch and will typically do 2/3 naps daily. I give him 1 dose of probiotics nightly. Here are some of his issues:
1. Eczema
2. Ongoing yeast rash (has improved but not completely better)
3. Aforementioned poor sleep habits
TIA

Your remedy is: Calcarea Carbonica 30c.

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 for your advice! Do you recommend that I dissolve the pellet as I cannot ensure that he will suck on it but may just swallow?
 
Mushka 5 years ago
Dissolving would be better.

I gave my son the first dose last night and he has had a rough night, worse than usual and extra sleepy this morning, very unusual for him, he usually wakes up very alert.. Should I give the second dose this morning? He is due to take it at 9..(in 45 min)
 
Mushka 5 years ago
Don't give the 2nd dose. Now just observe.

If you have given it, that's ok. Now just observe.
 
fitness 5 years ago
Ok will do, thank you! (Kindly disregard the email I sent you as well).

I'm afraid I don't have much changes to report aside from the first harder than usual night. Since than he has been sleeping his usual, getting up hourly most nights except for one night where he had a three hr stretch and some two hr stretches on a few nights. Last night he was up every hr. His eczema does not appear to have improved at all and in one spot (the inner left arm crease) it looks worse. His yeast rash has not worsened and looks the same (just some slight redness present). He has been acting his usual self as well, playful, willful, demanding, curious, affectionate and getting better at standing/walking while holding on. We have been using all the same treatments, incl creams, ointments, oatmeal, coconut oil, yogurt and probiotics. Tia

Please give him one dose of Cal-C, just one dose and report back.

I am a bit reluctant/nervous to try it again after last time..would you mind expounding a little on what the reasons are for trying again and reasonable expectations? Is it fairly typical that I haven't noticed much change over the past week? What is this remedy actually supposed to do if it's working properly?
Thanks for your help and advice.
 
Mushka 5 years ago
Sometimes symptoms don't resolve with just one dose so repeat is necessary. Its atypical to not notice change. Imo, the remedy is right, but in the end its your choice.

Hi there, I finally gave my son the second dose last night before bed. Not long after, he woke up crying from what seemed to be a nightmare. This is the first time I've heard him cry like that, sounded completely different than his usual and like he was scared. Other than that his night progressed as usual with a few 2 hr stretches. I am wondering if the bad dream is related to the calc carb. Would like to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance.
 
Mushka 5 years ago
Its likely that the nightmare was caused by Cal-C though I can't be certain as there are tons of other variables.

We will know for sure if his sleep improves in the coming days.
