    RE: 10 yr old daughter does not sleep

    Try a small dose of melatonin maybe 2mgs
    If that does not work try 2mgs one hour before bed and one Benadryl 15 min before bed.
    This worked well for my 12 year old.

    RE: 10 yr old daughter does not sleep

    Well, first of all, you have to find out why she's having a hard time. Maybe she doesn't like something about sleeping (i.e nightmares, sleep paralysis). It also could be something else, like too much screens (tv, cellphone, tablet) specially before bed. That would make her brain still be active.

    Before giving her any medication, go see your Dr.

    Maybe she just has an overactive imagination and has trouble slowing her thoughts. It can be especially hard when everything else around her has calmed to slow her thoughts along with it. You might wanna try also limiting electronics an hour before bed if you haven't done that as well or try a warm bath with some lavender epsom salt or essential oils to help relax. If your not against trying something I give my boys a supplement 30 minutes before bed. Although it contains melatonin it is in a lower dose than straight melatonin pills and also has natural properties that help prep for relax and sleep such as lavender, chamomile, and lemon balm. I give my 9yr old 1/2 to a full tablet and the younger boys just a 1/2. They are chewable and come in cherry flavor so they dont put up a fuss about taking them. I know at that age I was the same way and would stay up for hours staring out my door not blinking until I would start seeing things like ghosts or whatever I imagined. The supplements I use are called Natures Garden sleep aid. You can get them at Dollar Tree. 8 for a 1$ or Midnites at local grocery store 30 for 10$ I prefer Dollar Tree ones because you get more bang for your buck!
