After almost a full year of exhausting tantrums and miserable nights... i gave my dd a small dose of melatonin tonight, and she didnt even make it through the story. This marks the firstnight in over a month that the last thing i did before leaving her room wasnt yelling and spanking. Its the first time in 8 months that she didnt scream when i left the room. Cuddling and saying i love you, stroking her hair gave me such a sense of peace. Peace for her, peace for us. Any testimonials? Advice? Side effects? I am feeling very conflicted... i failed to provide my daughter a healthy, successful, restful routine. Definitely not a long term solution.
