  • Chamomile tea works for me too. I also heard on Dr. Oz that tart cherry juice has natural melatonin in it which helps you get to sleep. And spend plenty of fun one on one time with your little one. GL!

  • Some docs let you take Benadryl, so I'd ask if you can take that.

  • My doctor told me melatonin was ok.. You can get it from most vitamin stores. (your body produces it naturally anyway)
