Please don't bash. I haven't done it, but I might consider it soon. My 17-month-old does not sleep well at all. My sister suggested using a little Benadryl at bed time. I'm leery about this, of course, but . . . Has anyone done it? Did it help? For how long did you use it, or was it a one-time thing? Thanks!Answer Question

Nope. Yeah, it may make some children drowsy, but some children it makes hyperactive...like my 4 yo son. I have never given him Benadryl to make him sleep, it was for allergies, but he would start bouncing off the freaking walls!! Plus, it's not recommended to give to toddlers anyway...my son's allergist told me to give it to him and figured out the right dosage according to his weight...no where on the packaging does it have a dosage for a toddler. (It's for ages 6 and up.) I wouldn't chance overdosing my child just to get them to sleep.....(continued)
