Toddler Sleep Problems

Hello - I have a have a 3.5 year-old who used to be a great sleeper. However, in the last couple of months he has taken to waking up 2 - 3 times a night. Asking to come sleep with us or saying that his room is scary. I will walk him back to his room each time, and while he seems tired and goes back without a fight most nights he just wakes up again within an hour or two. The he will ask to go to the bathroom. He used to have the light from his fish tank on as a night light, but I thought it may be disturbing his sleep so I got him a Himlayan salt lamp but it does not seem to have made a difference. Every now and then he will sleep through the night but I think it is just from sheer exhausting. He is also noticeably cranky the following day when he wakes multiple times during the previous night. Tantrums and meltdowns which is really not his personality.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
1-ask particularly what make him fear in his room?
2-did he watch tv too much?

In answer to your questions.

1 - I have asked and he will say that it is scary or spooky. Sometimes there are monsters or dragons, but he also says it's just his imagination. Other times he will just say that he misses me. Last night, for example, he said he wanted to talk about the day and how it was getting chilly outside. When it I told him it was bedtime he said his room was spooky again.

2 - he does watch a bit of tv before bedtime, but he doesn't go straight to bed after tv time. we will go put on our pj's, brush our teeth, read books and tell stories first. So it's at least 30 - 40 minutes winding down without any tv.

give him one dose(4 pills) of Baryta phos 200c no more dose after that.
do not let him watch tv for 2 weeks tell him the tv is not working or his favorite channels are not available etc.I am not completely relating the case to watching tv but in many cases watching tv is the reason of fear.if the symptoms do not reduce to a satisfactory level we will use other medication but first try this.Give feedback after two week .
take care.

thanks so much for your feedback. I started the no TV this evening and will see how it goes for the next two weeks. he did say that his room was scary at bedtime. I asked once again what it was and he mentioned his bookcase was making a shadow so I went ahead and moved it to the hallway.

I will have to order the Baryta phos ... may I ask what the purpose of it is as I am not familiar.

I will report back in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again,

Baryta phos – immaturity, dependence, timidity; holding back for fear of embarrassment;fear of dark: desire for love and acceptance; childishness, fidgety, inattentive.
it is also use when height is stunt because of developing slowly due to weakness from illness and malnutrition.and also use for proper puberty.
take care.

Gaintrox that looks like periodic table/sensation prescribing - that is a bit surprising to me. Do you know that method?

dear evocantioner,
kids have hyperactive imagination whatever they see the image is place in their mind .when they sleep they start seeing dreams which they can't understand and they can't differentiate b/w what is real and what is dream and they start fearing of thing like it is a dragon it is ghost.Which slowly make them frighten to sleep alone .U may have seen cases in which a kid start fearing of his favorite toy the fear is take place in this way.And the other way in which the fear takes place :when we tell a kid do not go to that room there is ghost and ghost are scary the kid got scar of dark room. In all the way the fear takes place the catalyst is tv in this a simple cartoon character is a kids most fear in his dream.Also on tv they show cartoony ghost a character become a monster after drinking a potion.These thing seem to entertaining the kids but it also scaring them. In case like this one of of Baryta phos reduces the fearing and by avoid thing which scare kids the kid get cure if there is know disease.it is not periodic table/sensation prescribing

I don't think that online india site will
work well.

Go to Helios Homeopathic Pharm- it is
in the UK.
Order the Baryta Phos 200c in #6 pills,
get the smallest amount. It will take
around 10 days.

Other options are:

Call up a homeopath near you and see if they will sell it to you.
Go to Whole Foods ( they have homeopathic remedies) and ask
if they can order that remedy from Boiron for you, bc they carry
Boiron and can special order whatever they want from Boiron.
It may get there quicker than Helios.

Or Call up Hahnemann Pharmacy in No California and say an
India homeopath has suggested this and can you place an order
with them for it- in #6 pills or liquid.

Simone717 - Thank you so much for the information. I have been trying to find a local homeopath with no such luck yet. I will try the other routes as well. Thanks again! Yvonne

And yet you have clearly described a mix of phosphorous and baryta symptoms - that IS prescribing as it is done through the periodic table even if you don't realise it.

I am finding your process of prescribing fascinating. I hope I am not making you too uncomfortable with all my questions.
