  • Rocking? Music? Nursing/a bottle? Maybe Baby just isn't tired enough?

  • Try singing a lullaby in a calm soothing tone! But every baby's different.

  • i put chamomile tea in my daughters sippy right before naps and at bedtime. i usually brew the tea and mix it with some apple juice... to sweeten it a little. or i put some milk on the stove and put the tea bag in with it. i put a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg with it too.

  • They make valerian for children. When my children are too revved up to sleep I give them a little. Valerian is a very very strong sedative (its an herb). It is natural and cannot hurt your children (you would really have to force a ton of it down them for them to overdose and then they would get sick). Valerian promotes deep healing sleep. I have used it with great success. A note to you would be that if you use it too frequently, it will stop working as it is non habit forming
