Infant w/ Restless legs at night

My 7 month old has been waking up every couple hours at night for the last week or so. He cries without opening his eyes and his legs are non-stop. The only thing that seems to comfort him is a leg massage.

Is there something I can give him before bed each night to help calm his legs and help him sleep?

He's doing much better! Sleeping 10-12 hours a night. I do give him Hyland's teething tablets before bed. Should I continue those or calc phos/nat mur?

Thanks!

if the symptoms are completely gone stop the medicine if not give only one dose per day till it gone.But About the teething tablets they are made by combinations of medicines;so,its components might not mach ur baby and can cause unsatisfactory result latter.For teething problem consult a doctor DO NOT USE these products.
take care.

My pediatrician was the one that recommended the Hyland's teething tablets..

I also use 'Punkin Butt' teething oil. What is your opinion on that?

Ingredients: Vitis vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Helianthus annuus (Organic Sunflower) Oil, Sesamum indicum (Organic Sesame) Oil and/or Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Essential oil blend (chamomile, clove, peppermint), Citrus grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract.

the Punkin Butt' teething oil. is fine . And if a pediatrician recommended the hyland's teething table then he would've compare the symptoms.
As per my opinion:
there are many combination of medicine available in the market .For example for pain
they combine Rhus tox,Causticum,Hypericum, Arnica,etc. these medicine will give relief but it is not the right way if we see the basic law of homeopathy this is the wrong way. The selection of medicine is done by the symptoms and also depend on person.so, if we use combination of medicine it might produce new symptoms (negative effects) .But kids are different because the changes in their body is dynamic and there body are not strong enough to withstand these medicines negative effect if the selection is wrong it might cause unsatisfactory effect.
