My 3 year old is full of issues it seems. :(
Poor baby has had multiple surgeries for tubes/adenoids. She has been small from the get go and is now barely 6 lbs heavier than her 1 year old brother and she is about to be 4.
And since about October of last year her sleep has gone haywire. She doesn't fall to sleep very easily AT ALL. It is typically midnight or so before she falls to sleep. She tosses and turns and has bad dreams. And then she is moody the next day (pretty much all day every day) due to being so tired.
She will take a nap after a fight to get her to lay down, and after she cries because she HATES to have to lay down for naps or bed time. :( She takes good naps of about an hour or more WHEN you can get her to sleep.
Due to it affecting her attitude should I speak to the pediatrician about it a bit more? I have mentioned it to them already quite a bit. They actually mentioned possibly doing a sleep study on her.
Thing is if she has to wear a CPAP mask that will NEVER happen. I sell those and she wouldn't keep it on her face, I just know it.
They told me at one point that I could split a Melatonin (herbal sleeping supplement) into 1/6 and give it to her, but it doesn't help to regulate her sleep. Just finally knocks her out and then she has problems sleeping it off.
I'm at a loss. What should I do?
