TwiceBabies: Day Three with Melatonin

Tonight is day, or night, three with Melatonin in their milk. It is unbelievable how only half of a whole pill, in each of their milk sippy cups, allows them to sleep soundly. Honestly, I had no idea Melatonin works like this.

Now, for some people, Melatonin does not work. I do not understand why, but it does not work.

Within 5-15 minutes, my twins are out like a light. That is, until they might need a diaper change or they roll over on each other.

Long live Melatonin!

  1. Do be careful...while I love sleeping twins as much as the next gal, there are a few possible side-effects from melatonin, and actually I've heard nothing about giving it to kids.

    Here was something I found just peeking at Mayo Clinic's site:

    Normally I wouldn't even chime in, especially since you've got long-awaited sleepers, but do make sure your pediatrician is A-OK with it!

    That all said, your babies are DARLING! Enjoy 'em!
