Quoting Supafly★:" I heard they can get dependent on it, and then it won't even work after awhile. I wouldn't want to deal ... [snip!] ... that in a baby. DS is a horrible sleeper. His pedi is referring him to a sleep clinic. Maybe ask your son's pedi about that? "
I thought about that. I want to try it.
The thing I guess most ya'll don't know is my son was born with a disability and has to have braces on his feet and legs. That also keeps him wound up. I know of moms who gave their infants melatonin occasionally and it isn't unheard of. I just wondered what other's experiences were.
This isn't a phase. It has been lasting from day one in the hospital.
My guess is he has a sleep disorder. I will have to get my pediatrician to look into it.
