does anyone else have this problem...i am assuming that the histamine reaction in my daughter is what is causing her frequent nightmares (they always happen around an accidental food "breech") it is very difficult b/c this is often. everytime i refine her diet and think i have it all figured out, one of the foods that she usually doesn't have a problem with that i depend on, beings to cause problems as well...so she is very often showing signs.

so when prevention is not enough, what can i do before she sleeps to help her dreams be more pleasant or subdued?? should i just use my normal anti-histamine treaments (like nettles tea or homeopathy allergy drops)

any thoughts, oh wise fellow food allergy mama-experts?

When my dd has nightmares, I give her Calmes Forte...it works like a charm...
I don't know if her's are allergy related, but whatever the reason, it really seems to calm her.
Good luck-nightmares are the worst!

Calms forte is like teething tablets, a homeopathic blend in a tablet form. It is sold by the teething tablets in our healthfood store in the baby section. It is in a box similar in shape to the teething tablets. The box is blue with dreamy little moons and stars on it.

I think nettles would be fine as well. THey're very nutritious, I can't think of any reason not to give them to a child.

Thanks for that, I don't think we have those here in australia. I use rescue remedy when I know my dd is going to have a bad night. Luckily I can usually pick it now, but I have had seven yrs of practice.
