9. Sleep Problems In Infants And Children With Suggested Solutions
Sleep problems in children are extensive in our society. These include extended wakefulness, crying, abnormal demands for food, apnea, head-banging, nightmares and soon.
Almost all of these manifestations spring from an abnormal body condition begotten of, today's criminal treatment of children. To feed babies anything other than mother's milk is a tragedy. Freshly expressed fruit juices might be substituted for a feeding of mother's milk here and there, but even that is not advisable before six months of age. All other feeding is a disaster for the infant. Inoculating and drugging infants is criminal in every sense of the word. Feeding them starches, cooked foods, caffeine and other such fare wrecks their delicate but vital faculties.
Formula-fed babies who are started on cereals within two months of birth, who are given cooked and condimented meats and other unfit foods and are drugged develop many pathologies. These manifest as the "usual childhood diseases" and as sleep problems.
An infant that does not feel right will not act "right." Abnormal behavior comes from abnormal conditions. Usually, a short fast will enable the child's body to cleanse itself. A proper regime of living that includes exercise (yes, even for an infant!), correct foods for the age, fresh air and sunshine, ample sleep, etc., will further improve the child's conditions.
