    I'm sure this is a silly question but is cod liver oil and fish oil the same? My kids have cod liver oil already....

    In"think" fish oils have higher EPA fatty acids than cod liver oil ( which is the strain that helps with behaviour) but cod liver oil still has them so I'm sure will still benefit but Id check with a naturopath to be certain!

    Personally, I'd think you may have answered your own question. Sleep deprivation often leads to hyperactivity and difficulty in managing emotions/behaviour in kids. I know that doesn't help...but have you looked into seeing a sleep specialist for her?
    No other advice, but that must be so hard. I hope you find something that works.
    @FirstTimeMummy2012 with all due respect, of course a naturopath is likely to believe that...doesn't mean that it's supported by medical or behavioural science.

    IMO this is all because of tiredness.

    My kids are feral when tired. She is exhausted and not getting enough sleep, this has s huge impact on behaviour.

    As hard as it is, I would try and keep her up from her day nap even if she's exhausted from the night before.

    What time does she go to bed?

    There are actually quite a few scientific studies done and being done that do prove it , yes they will need to do more major ones to convince the general medical population but they will get there - just like with the new WHO recommendations about processed meats being carcinogenic to humans - naturopaths have been advising this for decades !

    I find that concept fascinating. My ds1 is a terrible sleeper, as a toddler he would not sleep, cut the day sleep at 15 months and would remain awake til 2 or 3 am most mornings. He averaged about 5 hours sleep a night.

    Did his lack of sleep cause his behavior problems or were the two related to something else?
    He is still hard to get to sleep but will sleep 10 hours a night and still a difficult child.

    I've been looking into what Elijah's mum has posted, interestingly my sons favourite lunch is a ham sandwich on white bread
    Which from the fed up website have the same affect as sausages :/
    Now to change his daily lunch item lol

    I agree that your DD may be overtired especially if she has disrupted sleep patterns.
    My DD2 was very similar horrible behaviour during the day, sleep disturbance every night sometimes just needing the toilet, sometimes screaming and crying and absolutely inconsolable. We tried every night terror treatment recommended and nothing worked for more than a night or two. She was diagnosed with asthma 6 months ago and after 2 weeks of flixotide she had no more "night terrors" and is sleeping longer too.
    Day behaviour is slightly better too (she still has her moments though) however I know when the inhaler has run out as she has night disturbances again within a few days.
    It's not easy to deal with- I hope you get some answers soon.

    Default extreme 3 year old behaviour PLEASE help

    I think she is definitely overtired and then depending on what her diet is it is probably a combination of both.

    I imagine Elijahsmum knows more about this but I remember reading an article that berries having a naturally occurring acid that can cause sleep disruptions so if she is having too many that may be worth cutting back on. My son eats heaps (cheap in the uk) but thankfully doesn't seem to bother him.

    I think you might mean salicylates? ( found in berries and most fruit) can cause insomnia
