Melatonin for my 13 month old Baby.

by Anne

Question

Hi!

I started my 13 month on Melatonin, suggested by my doctor.First off she is only 15 pounds...so we gave her half the dosage of 2.5mg of the liquid form.She had a typical night for herself.She woke at 3am and stayed up for a little over two ours...I was just wandering what I should do tonight?


Answer

Is this the first time?
You would have to give her time to get accustomed this supplement.
You cannot judge the effects from just the first night.
Also, does have frequent awakenings and how long has this been going on?

In the end, you have to give your daughter time to customize to melatonin.

If after 1 week and she continues to have frequent awakenings, i advise you take her off it.
