lemon balm to help 19mo sleep?
« on: January 01, 2014, 03:57:08 PM »
hi there!
my 19mo is a pretty good sleeper; he knows and loves his bedtime routine, and (most of the time) once he's asleep, he's down for the night no problems. however, he wakes up super early- at least really early to this non-morning person momma. he's up between 5 and 5:30. he takes a sippy cup of milk (almond/coconut mix) and then usually dozes off in bed with me for a half hour, then he's up and ready to go for the day. we were putting him to bed at 7:30 but then i thought maybe that was why he was waking up so early. we've been putting him to bed by 8 or 8:30 but he still wakes up between 5 and 5:30!

i'm four months along with baby #2 and i'm exhausted all the time, so the early morning wake ups aren't helping. i was thinking about giving the 19mo a little lemon balm because i was reading that it's supposed to be a good sleep aid. anyone know if it's safe for littles and if so, how much/in what form do i give him?
