    Yes, just found the article I had read, Salicylates☺️. Found in most healthy foods so obviously can't avoid but may be best to just ensure moderation or not having too close to bed?

    How long is your dd napping for during the day? Sounds like it's time to cut it back it cut it altogether.

    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.
    With all due respect, it's not simply a naturopaths opinion. We MUST study medical science to get our accreditation so believe me, there is plenty of research to support that diet contributes to behavioural problems. You might want to read The Grain Brain. Plenty of medical evidence in that book! It was written by David Perlmutter who happens to be a neurologist.

    My DD appears to be allergic to salicylates...she can no longer eat tomato, watermelon, oranges/mandarins, even soy sauce without coming up in a hive-like rash from head to toe!

    I agree that it sounds a lot like a very tired and therefore emotionally fragile child. Diet may well be a factor in that but I am always cautious about getting too hung up on food. Unless you have a passion for healthy food and the time to do quality research, you will drive yourself crazy trying to get it 'right'. Keep it simple - ditch anything that's obviously bad like packaged junk food and offer fresh food as much as you can. It might make a difference, it might not. See a dietician if you feel you need guidance on working out a diet for behaviour issues. Naturopaths can be a great resource, but I think when it comes to issues like you've described its best to use them in conjunction with your child's Dr.

    Good luck, I hope you see some improvement soon.

    My daughter sleeps 30 mins approximately during the day. Only on some days and that 30 minutes is if she falls asleep in the car or pram.
    I think her constant night waking is the problem and general lack of sleep.
    I'm my wits end.

    A sleep study/sleep specialist would be beneficial as well as seeing the paed. Sleep disturbance has a huge effect on children's behaviour & development. We saw a sleep specialist with my 2.5yr old & she was waking a lot, showed signs of obstructive sleep apnea & reflux. We have had her tonsils & adenoids removed which had some improvement and then saw a paed gastro to properly medicate her reflux which she has had further improvement. I'm now looking at additives & she definitely responds negatively when eating certain foods. I would start with the sleep specialist but also be conscious of what she is eating and how she reacts. Good luck! I know it's a tough road!

    I've read on the hub a few times some moms say that cacao makes their children act up so I would be cautious of using that with her.

    I was referring specifically to your 90% claim.

    Isn't it due to caffeine content? I know there is caffeine in other stuff but for someone who has issues sleeping I can see why it should be avoided.
