  • I have never taken it. I have heard of using it for children, but personally I wouldn't feel comfortable giving it to a child.

  • I'm told that it is safe for kids and is all natural and helps them develop a normal sleep pattern. Just wondering if there would be any side effect....I'm assuming not since its natural...?

  • I took it years ago. It was when we were doing a lot of traveling with heavy changes in time. I don't really remember if it helped. It was before kids so it was likely that I just guzzled coffee when I was tired.

  • Walmart does. After a child is 6 months old he/she can take it. (this is a nurse that told me this so I'm assuming she knows..)

  • So if I give my 3 year old son some for a couple days there should be no side effects as far as you know? I should have asked the nurse this...I didn't think of it at the time.
