Just curious if anyone on here has tried it out? We have had some major disruptions in our household lately and our 3yr old little guy's sensory stuff is right out of whack. One of the Mom's at our local ASD chapter is reccommending Rescue Remedy to everyone and Im wondering what you all think<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I HEART it as well. And Calms, but RR is longer and better, I think. In fact, I had DH use some the other day and now he wants his own bottle to take to work with him. LOVE IT for the boys at bedtime when they're squirrely. I use it on my 2 1/2 and 6 yo's.

We have. Our naturopath recommended it. I thought it would be too simple of a solution but I've seen it work. I usually use it on our little guy when he's on his way to a melt down. Its not a miracle but when I can't get him in his car seat b/c he's melting down it helps.

Does the spray work as well? My dh uses RR and we got some of the spray and he said he doesn't work as well for him? I haven't tried it for dd. BUt I think now I will.

I’m happy to hear it has passed the mdc mamas test<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I totally have to go google and see what all is in it now. How often do you use it, how long do you find it lasts, and any other pertinent info you fell like passing on lol.

with no effect on my 4 years 7 mos ds. I have also used Boiron Cina (sleeplessness, nervousness, irritability in children) and Hyland's Calms Forte and Hyland's Calms Forte 4 Kids with no effect. My son has ADHD as well as other issues however so that may be why he is a non-responder.<br><br>
I try these remedies on myself and the Rescue Remedy Sleep spray worked for me but then I am usually so exhausted by the end of the day I am asleep before my head hits the pillow!<br><br>
I am going to try melatonin next per our ped.<br><br>
(I have also use KAL Relax-a-Saurus which is a L-Theanine blend for anxiety with no effect either.)<br><br>
Sincerely,<br>
Debra

Let me know if you find anything that works. I have tried calm's forte for children with not effect at all. I haven't tried the rescue remedy because I can't find it. (I know it is in that cupboard SOMEWHERE!) My 9 yo also has ADD as well as sensory issues (but her sensory issues are about buttons and silverware.) She can be put to bed at 9 and stay away until 1am or later!! She is a bear to get up in the morning. Anything that will help her sleep would be nice.<br><br>
My ND recommended putting rescue remedy in a spray bottle with lavender and spraying it near her face. As soon as I find that bottle I may try this just to see if it works at all.

Sorry, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">it didn't work for our DS 5 yo (4 at that time). We needed the big machinery, ie, OT for sensory processing, Collaborative Parenting Solutions (CPS from Explosive Children book), play therapy, Feingold diet, and a ton of patience....which I'm still waiting for....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

We use melatonin at night and it has worked wonders for our DS. Calms Forte 4 kids also seems to help or at least makes DS feel it is helping.. and it does no harm.. so he can take it as needed.<br><br>
I haven't tried RR on him but need to.. I have also tried Valarian Super Calm and it was a disaster.. totaly opposite effect..<br><br>
What has helped the most has been the melatonin and a weighted blanket.. the combination really helps DS calm and release all his sensory energy at night..
