  • jaw dropWhy would you even consider giving your child something like that without discussing it with their doctor? Although, melatonin is naturally produced in the body, it can cause some crazy dreams/nightmares in young children. Please talk with your child's doctor about appropriate ways for your child to get better sleep.

  • Are you fucking stupid?? This is a question for your child's doc... if you think your child needs a sleep aid you NEED to talk to a medical professional!!!

  • NEVER dope your kid up for sleep! Especially not that young! These things can slow their breathing down so much that they STOP. WHY RISK IT????
