jackson'smama Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 my dd just turned two and does not sleep well at all. none of my kids were "good sleepers" until well into 2-3 years of age but she is by far the worst. she falls asleep easily and sleeps well for about 4 hours but the rest of the night she wakes up at least every two hours, is restless, screams and yells in her sleeps, kicks, points her fingers...she's having some vivid dreams of arguing with her brothers and whatnot! i am able to wake her from this but it takes a few tries. she falls asleep and does it all again in 2 hours or less. she's clingy all.day.long. whiny. it's darn near impossible to get school work done b/c she constantly wants to be in my lap or is crying for my attention b/c she wants to cuddle up and sleep. however, she won't nap! and if lo and behold she naps, she takes forever to go to sleep at night. i'm lost here. the ped says give her 1mg melatonin every night for two weeks. but i'm terrified to give it to her. any advice?
