He is fussy during the day, IMO because he is tired from the not sleeping, and he gets clinging. Oh but he hates being worn at home. I try to carry him but I cannot hold him in my arms all day. When I put him down the crying starts again. He won't nap so he gets no rest during the day, which leads to more crying.
I am seriously at my wits end here. I have 3 other older children, a baby on the way and a husband who is about to be gone for a year. If we don't get this under control, I'm going to lose my mind. I am reading the book "What's Eating Your Child" in the hopes of finding a dietary solution and one of the chapters was about melatonin. However, the author (whose name is escaping me) only talks about melatonin in older children, like 6 year olds.
Can I give it to my one year old? I'm also reading about gluten sensitivity but if melatonin is an option I would like to try it first.
