Hylands 4Kids homeopathic



Hyland’s is well known for their homeopathic medicines that you can pretty much find at any big box store or pharmacy. I asked Hyland’s to try some of their 4kids line now that my daughter will be 2 in a month. I was very happy when they said yes. I myself am on a lot of prescription medications and try to have my girls on as few as I possible. When we received the samples, I did as our pediatrician if it was ok to use since she isn’t quite 2 yet, and I wanted to make sure, he was just fine with it.





When Fallon doesn’t sleep well at night and then doesn’t get a good nap, the whole day is thrown off. Not only is it thrown off for her but for me as well. We all know the saying “when mama isn’t happy then nobody’s happy”.

There have been nights in the recent past that Fallon has woken up crying and saying no. It’s not just a I kind of woke up so I’m going to fuss cry, but an I’m scared cry. I have no idea what could be causing it, but try to help her.  The other night nothing was working. I have lotion, that didn’t help, I have essential oils, that didn’t help. I was desperate and my daughter was still upset and not sleeping.  I remembered I had the 4KdsCalm ‘n Restful.

I figured I would give it a try since it couldn’t really hurt. The directions say to use 2 tablets every 15 mins or up to 8 doses. The pills are tiny so they dissolve very quickly. I was really hoping I didn’t need that many. Lucky after the 2nd dose she was out like a light. Now I don’t know if it was a combination of oils, lotion and Hyland’s, it being the middle of the night or Hyland’s by itself. Whatever it was, it helped. I tried it the next night and only used Hyland’s right at bed time and she slept through the night. I will definitely be keeping this on hand, but hoping I don’t have many nights where I need to use it.

The other item they sent me is called Defend and it’s for the relief of sinus pain, pressure, nasal congestion and headache. Luckily we have not had to use it yet but I have it just in case.  You don’t get as many tablets in the sinus as you do the calm ‘n restful, but that’s also because you don’t have to use as many. You use 1-2 tablets every 4 hours and the tablets just dissolve under the tongue. I’m hoping that when I do need to use this that it helps. If it’s anything like the Calm ‘n Restful, it won’t disappoint.


I don’t want a cabinet full of medicines even when they are more natural and homeopathic, but at the same time, I don’t want to wait until my kids need something and have to run to the store. Hylands has a whole line for kids 2-12 and the prices are very affordable. The Calm ‘n Restful has 125 tablets in the bottle, so it will last a while. Like I said above, you can find them just about anywhere, Walmart, Target, Walgreen's, CVS…  I recommend that you check them out to see if they are right for your child and also talk with your pediatrician to see as well.

  3. I have never heard of these products. I know melatonin can also help sleep, but I'm not sure if that is safe for kids.

  4. I would never give my kid a sedative even if it is homeopathy (looks like that by the dose). You can even be addicted some herbals too, or you think that without pills it wouldn't even okay to exist. Sometimes changing the bedtime routine could help, even is the kid is so little like 2 years.

  23. I take a lot of medications so I try to use as many natural products as I can...but I have to be careful though. Some of these things can interact with a lot of things I do take. Definitely worth looking into though!
