LO (4) never gets enough sleep at night. No matter what I do he will not fall asleep before 11. It doesn't matter what time I put him to bed. Reading stories. Bath time. Lights on or off. He will talk to himself or scream in pitch black/light for hours.
Waking him up for school in the morning is a nightmare
I honestly think its heightening my anxiety. I have never wanted anxiety meds more than I do right now.
Melatonin for sure. Ceili started at 1mg and it was too much she sat at the table staring at her fingers. She's only on 1/4mg right now and she's asleep within the hour. It's a synthetic hormone and you can buy it OTC and is like $8 a bottle.
