Hello! I have a son who is now 5.5 yrs old.
When my son was 2 yrs old he would only sleep
for 2 hours in a 24 hr period. I really noticed
a change in his eating, behaviour patterns.
We took a 2 weeks record of everything he ate and drank, the time he did these, and made a pattern of his behaviours. We soon came to realize(whoever), that any type of food with a RED dye in it, made him very hyper. By cutting out all red dye, such as ketchup, red juice, freezes popsicles. We noticed a complete behaviour change. We were totally amazed...
My son also walks on his tip toe, when we asked the specialist about this, he advised that when a child walks on there tip toes, it triggers a chemical in there brain and causes hyper activity. By keeping our son flat footed. There is no behavior problem.
