wow really? you are gonna give your kid sleeping medicing??!! that is nuts, 1. you should not be giving meds to your child unnecessarily, their body will grow an immunity and when she needs it, it wont work. 2. they dont make night time medicine for kids under 2 and 3. she will grow to be dependent on it.
personally, and im hard on my son, i would perform my night time routine (for us its dinner, bath, lotion and pj's, bedtime story and prayers and then i put him in bed cover him up give him a kiss and turn out his light and pull his door to. he goes right to sleep no muss no fuss. obviously it hasnt always been that way, when he first started sleeping in his room (10 mths ago) he screamed for like the first 3 days or so, screaming takes a lot of energy and they will wear themselves out and go to sleep. there are times every now and again that he has a bad night, and at this point i will go sit or lay with him but not often
