Quoting Denise ღ: My friend told me that she gives her son (5) a dose of 5mg of Melatonin every night before bed. She said ... [snip!] ... I try giving my daughter 5mg of melatonin before bed at night. My husband said not to, and I agree with him if it's harmful.
It's fine, it causes no dependency and doesn't harm the child.
Work at a natural health food store. People buy it mostly for old people and kids 2+.
ETA: If you try it and it gives your kid night terrors... take them off of it. >.>
ETAETA: I just googled it, because I have NEVER heard of it giving kids night terrors, and according to google Melatonin CURES night terrors, not causes them. The reason some people get them is because of too little night terrors. The thing about supplements is they affect everyone differently, so it may cause different or atypical symptoms in each person. It's all about experimentation.
