Frequently waking toddler

My 2 year old is a terrible sleeper. Wakes every couple of hours with a cry and breastfeeds. Goes to bed at 8 pm and his first waking begins around 11 pm and continues till 4 am when he is finally fully awake. His diet is not loaded with junk and he gets a lot of attention (sans TV) and TLC. He birth was medication free(at a birth center) and has not been vaccinated at all. He is very healthy (36 lbs) and is a curious healthy and happy child in our household.

He was late to walk (I am thinking Calc Carb), several cavities in teeth, loves spicy food, eats a load of vegetables and drank two full glasses of buttermilk. Fussy toward the evenings (yawns at 5PM - 6PM), takes a short nap (1 hour sometimes less). Gets angry and throws tantrums( isn't he 2?). Everything points to Calc C. I have tried 30c with not much success. Where am I misdiagnosing?

Dear rectian,

Waking with a cry is a keynote of Apis which is also an acute of Calcarea.If your child is markedly worse by heat or in warm rooms, specially in the head area, is relatively thirstless and has signs of a bit of dropsy, then you may tru Apis 30.

Dear Rajiv
Thanks for the response. He is a constant nurser. Sometimes out of thirst, but many times during the day out of boredom AND/OR comfort. So, I am unable to assess that he is thirstless. He definitely kicks off his bed clothes during sleep. But he does not show any signs of dropsy.

True Apis is acute of Calc, and I have not tried it. Any more thoughts?...
