It works

26/09/06 Night One on Melatonin - gave Elijah .3mg of Melatonin - 20 minutes before bed - he went off to sleep without any fuss and he slept through the night until at least 7:30 am. I got up at 7:50am - how fabulous.

27/09/06 Night Two on Melatonin - gave Elijah .3mg of Melatonin 20 minutes before bed he went off to sleep without any fuss and he slept through the night until at least 7:30 am. We all slept in till 8:20am shock horror.

28/09/06 Night Three on Melatonin- gave Elijah .3mg of Melatonin 20 minutes before bed he went off to sleep no prob he slept until 2 and work and then again at 4:15 - I got up to him at 4:15 and changed his nappy which was full. I left him and with 30 minutes he was back asleep and was still asleep at 8am this morning. He usually wouldn't go back to sleep and so this was a bonus.

Because it is school holidays for this week and next week, Julie spent Wednesday and Thursday Morning with Elijah at the preschool and Francesca went well. Elijah is now with the over 2 children. Julie came home quite exhausted both days as he was justa ball or energy - no stopping.

Until next time

What time are you putting him to bed? Just curious what the length of sleep for this is. Thankfully Josh isn't having any big sleep issues yet, but I like to keep this info stuffed in my mind for any future need. Great that you were able to sleep!!! I know that was a blessing for all of you. Great Blog too!
