Sleeping.... we finally are!!!
(Boca Raton, FL)
My daughter is almost five and for at least 2 years, has slept 3-6 hours a night, often wakening and unable to fall asleep for hours. She's miserable during the day and her parents aren't much better :>
Her neurologist suggested using melatonin, which I thought wouldn't work. Well, it did. We've had a week of sleep, a week of our daughter falling asleep 20 minutes after receiving melatonin! Her sensory problems are slightly lessened during the day as she is finally sleeping enough (now 11-12 hours a night, only wakens if she isn't touching a parent while asleep.)
Has anyone else used this? Should we take a break from it from time to time? Any information you have about melatonin and SPD?
