Vergleich: Borx. + Borium
[Dr. Douglas M. Borland]
Baryta carbonica vs Borax Children
A feature which distinguishes Baryta from Borax children is the manner in the child is frightened. The Baryta is scared of anything strange, while Borax is scared of any sudden noise. Also the Borax
child has not the same degree of inability to learn. Rather, he is simply idle.

Wie beim Weichselzopf verwickeln sich Haare des Kindes an Spitzen und verkleben, dass man sie nicht auseinander bringen kann, und schneidet man diese Büschel ab, so verwickeln sie sich
doch wieder aufs Neue.
Borax-Babies: „Sie mögen nicht so oft liebkost werden und können stundenlang alleine in ihrem Laufgitter spielen o. liegen passiv und desinteressiert. Sie tun sich manchmal schwer ihre Gefühle
zu zeigen und schreien z.B. nur, wenn sie Hunger haben o. ihre Windel nass ist. Sie möchten nicht immer Menschen um sich haben und mögen es nicht, berührt o. angesprochen zu werden. ...
Neigung sich zu erschrecken in Verbindung mit Traurigkeit. Sehr große Empfindlichkeit (mehr als andere Natriums) und Nervosität.
Reaktionsmangel, traurig und zurückgezogen“.
Infant frequently cries out in its sleep, and seriously grasps its mother, as if been frightened by a dream.
Borax is a remedy that is used primarily in children in cases where they exhibit < from downward motion. For example, when the mother is in the act of laying the child down onto the bed, it may rise up
in its sleep and cry out in fright. Lifting up an infant’s feet to change a nappy will aggravate the child, who will start to shout. Borax children in general have
a tendency to shout or scream rather than cry. An infant being laid down will start and throw up its hands as if afraid of falling, and some nights it may be impossible to put the child down at all.
When laying the child down on the couch or in the cradle, it cries and clings to the mother. Children who are lifted or rocked may suffer from arrested respiration. They cannot bear a downward motion, even in sleep. When dandling a child up and down or when rocking it in the arms, you may find that it makes an anxious face during the downward motion.
Exhibit another important symptom, fright during sleep. They may scream and shout during sleep. Children wake up suddenly, screaming and grasping the sides of the cradle, without apparent cause.
They start in sleep, as if frightened. Sleepy.
The child at the breast sleeps more than usual, but wakes frequently.
The child tosses about, cries until 4 h., frequently out of its sleep, and in the morning is in a whining mood.
An infant cries out of sleep and anxiously grasps its mother, as if frightened by a dream.
The infant frequently cries out in its sleep and anxiously grasps its mother, as if it had been frightened by a dream. Frequent waking in the newborn, and screaming during fever when the head becomes hot.
Another interesting point in these children is that they cry and shriek with pain before urinating or passing a stool. You may find cases of colic in babies, after suppressed aphthae. They suddenly scream and kick and equally suddenly turn quiet for ten to twenty minutes, and then start again. They want to be carried about but the fits are not prevented. In cases of enteritis the child cries a great deal, its mouth is very sore, greenish stool passes every hour or two, a white coat covers the tongue and inside the cheeks, and a red eruption appears on the face.
Hot urine in the infant and burning urine in children are frequent. The infant urinates nearly every ten or twelve minutes, and frequently cries and screams before the urine passes. Children are so afraid to urinate, that they almost have convulsions when the desire to urinate comes on.
Excessively nervous (noise). A slight noise will wake them up. They are frightened on hearing a distant noise and start in every limb on hearing an anxious cry. They start at hawking or sneezing or paper rustling. The slamming of a door would cause the child to start and then scream with fright. The child is frightened during thunderstorms.
Borax children may be affected by aphthae. The infant’s palate is wrinkled and it cries frequently when nursing. The child has an aphthous sore mouth, the ulcers bleed on eating or on touch. The mouth is very tender in nursing children; it may be very hot, with thirst and vomiting. The child’s mouth feels hot to mother’s nipple; the child lets go of the nipple and cries with pain and vexation, or else refuses the breast altogether. Children become marasmic because of the aphthous condition; they cannot digest.
Further symptoms to be found in Borax children include: slowness in learning to talk; weeping tearful mood at night; prolonged sleep. The child at the breast sleeps more than usual, but wakes up frequently. Sleep fitful in small children. Aversion to drinks. Carphology during fever. Finally, the child’s hair becomes entangled at the tips and sticks together so that it cannot be separated. If these bunches are cut off they form again.
The three main key-notes on which Borax is usually prescribed are:
Aggravation from downward motion.
Fretfulness, ill-humour, indolence and discontent before stool; but lively, contented, and cheerful after stool.
> symptoms after 23 h.
