Who needs sleep?

Me! That's who!!!

Last night Jason slept for about 2 hours from 9:00pm-11:00pm. Sort of. We tried to keep putting him in his own bed and within 2 minutes of leaving his side he was back in our bed.

He was up screaming and jumping and climbing and generally making me crazy until about 3:30am or 4:00am. Then he was up at 7:00am.......I tried another round of Melatonin and he didn't even get sleepy. So now I will have a migraine for the Holidays.

If it was me with Insomnia maybe it would be easier!!! =)

I realize you've already lost some sleep, but try Source Naturals brand melatonin in either drops or chewable peppermint or orange. We've always had good luck with it (my son has been taking it practically every night for eight years). One think you might not know (we didn't for several months) is to give melatonin when the person wakes in the middle of the night, not just before bedtime. After five weeks with a sleep specialist, we learned a LOT about it! Another nice thing is that you can't take an overdose. So, if you've given your child 1mil, and he wakes up at 4 a.m., you can give him another 1mil.

I hope that helps and that you get some sleep!

P.S. Say, you don't by chance, happen to know Bonnie Lucas, do you? She's no longer in Utah, but she is LDS.

Thank you Leslie! I'm going to go look for the Source Naturals today. We've been using Melatonin for a while, but it's the yukky tasting kind. It can be hard to get him to take it. However, when he's up, he's up....Even in the middle of the night, I can give him the Melatonin and he's still up for another 3 hours.

Bonnie Lucas doesn't sound familiar. That doesn't mean I don't know her though. My memory can be pretty bad at times. LOL!
