Re: [Plagio] DocBand-sleeping issues-HELP!!

Thursday, 17 January 2008      0 comments

You can try melatonin too. Our son has severe neuro problems so
sleeping problems are very common. Our neuro doc suggested melatonin
and it has worked wonders. Melatonin is all natural...our body makes it
to help produce a circadian rhythm. It's also non-addictive and doesn't
make you feel sleepy the next day since its something our body makes
anyway. It's sold anywhere (CVS or Walgreens). We started out with 1mg
and have worked slowly (a week at a time) up to 5 mg. I've heard other
people using it with great success.
Good luck!

Teething tablets disolve in the babies mouth and I think it kind of
numbs the area. I'm not sure though but I know they really help my
nephew. The Hylands brand seems to disolve better than some of the
other brands. I know Orajel gags my son (even if I put a REALLY
small amount on the gum area).

I bought these at Walmart. My kids didn't like the orajel and
others, but these seem to work really well! Good luck!
