Very restless toddler

Hi

My son is 21 months old. he is a very busy little boy alwatys has been. He is a very restless sleeper moves all night and even talks. I used to be the same and even used to sleep walk. I am just cncerned he isnt getting enough rest. I give him rescue remedy and he calms a little but still moves a lot. Should i do something else or is this ok? Is he just busy or what else could it be?

You are doing exactly the right thing.Rescue Remedy is safe. Do not give your son any of the so-called sedatives for young children. They usually have the opposite effect to the one you would want and may make young children very unhappy.Give your son an Omega 3 supplement such as Eye Q.
