Uh, just drink a bunch before bedtime. Sweet dreams every time. It's worked for me for 11 years.
ZMA (available at any health food store) will give you a really deep sleep and vivid dreams.
I just lay there buzzed and awake. I have tried this.
Really? A woman I work with swears by valarian root and melatonin pills. She's a vitamin junkie though. It is like a phramacy at her desk.
I just looked it up and it says it is supplement for bodybuilders...
Magnesium works wonders for sleep.
my kids had a really hard time falling asleep, and we asked the pediatrician about melatonin, he said it was ok. my daughter takes 1/2 a pill each night and it works like a charm. i tried one once on a night i was having trouble sleeping, it was helpful.
it is not a sleeping pill though, it wont make you pass out, and you dont need to sleep for a certain amount of hours to use it. i dont know all the particulars, but it somehow facilitates in making you tired. something about the body naturally makes a hormone/enzyme?? at night to slow itself down, and some peoples bodies dont produce enough of it at night, so malatonin substitutes for it. something like that.
Is it harmful to her?
She is only 9 months old ..
oh, haha, the baby is a fine sleeper, i wouldnt give a baby like that melatonin. i was talking about my 8 year old. she takes it, and occasionally my son, he is 5.
Yeah, your body produces in naturally in the dark. That is why they say TV and such isn't good before bed because it limits melatonin production in the brain.
When my father was young he had a friend across the street and one night his friend couldn't sleep and he needed to be up really early for a wedding. He called my father and asked him to knock him out so he would sleep. Naturally my father (who is a very big guy) went over there and punched him square in the face, but didn't want to hurt him really bad so he didn't hit him too hard. Well, it didn't work and he was crying in bed, so my dad said ok, now I am really going to hit you. He cracked him hard and he hit his pillow and stayed asleep all night. The downside was he woke up with a black eye and an egg over his eye. He told everybody at the wedding that he fell and his his head on his dresser.
Get em off the Xbox and running around. Jesus balls I never had sleep issues THAT young. ~15 is where it started for me.
Let's run around until they drop from exhaustion.
Forgot that Dunkin coffee sucks.
haha, we dont have a single gaming system in the house. my kids run around all the time, more than the vast majority of american kids i have no doubt. its a hormone thing, not an attention/mind zap thing.
A lot of kids are very anxious at bedtime..
