DD is 16 months old and normally very energetic and healthy. But this pattern has been repeating for a while and I'd like a plan to address it. If she misses a nap (sometimes even just one day, but definitely if her sleep is off for a couple of days, like when we travel- this is unusual because most of the time she sleeps regularly and great), 2 days later she starts to feel not quite herself- eats less food, gets clingier, clear runny nose, slight cough when lying down, flushed face. I can't seem to find the right homeopathic remedy for this, or any other good plan. We try to slow down, but then she gets bored and restless. I give her a multivitamin, but she eats well balanced foods. I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks!!!

It is hard to make up for lost sleep. She just sounds like a kid who really needs consistancy in that area and feels out of sors when her schedule is thrown off.

Good luck finding something that helps.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Thanks, Lilyka! I've been alternating chamomilla and pulsatilla homeopathic, and trying to slow down a bit until this one passes.
