Melatonin help?

Posted by on Mar. 22, 2013 at 6:09 PM

So I've talked to DD's pediatrician. She suggested we try 1mg of melatonin to see if it helps DD fall asleep. We have a bed time routine and she's in bed by 9 pm no matter what, but she isn't falling asleep.

So my question is, WHEN do I give this to her? As we're getting ready for bed? An hour before bed? I don't have any experience with this type of sleep aid.

Normally it's 30 minutes before bed. Does it have instructions?

It says "as a dietary suppliment take 20 minute before bed."

Normally when I give it to dd. She gets a snack (normally crackers), teeth brushed, tucked in bed, song and story. Many times she doesn't make it far into the story.

If she's played really hard that day in school or something she doesn't make it through story time either. But then its only because she's dog tired.
