I realize this may be considered premature to say in such a new relationship, especially since we were just introduced this evening, but I think I have found my new best friend. Her name is Melatonin, and she's the most perfectly beautiful little white pill. Her powers and influence seem limitless. This isn't anything new...but Miss Little Sammy has sleeping issues. Lately, she has been having a hard time falling asleep -- crying for 30-45 minutes before she finally dozes off. She is also waking up too early for my liking. This is a problem because since she isn't falling asleep too quickly like she was getting accustomed to, the early waking up makes her really cranky during the day. And we all know that naps are a no-go for Sammy. Always have been, always will be. Our nuerologist suggested .5 mg of Melatonin. I ran out and bought some today. I couldn't find any smaller dose than 3 mg, so we had to cut the pill a few times with her pill splitter. Granted, Sammy was already tired tonight...but after only about 30 minutes of taking her little dose of Melatonin, she could barely keep her eyes open. After putting her down in her crib, I've heard no cries out, no yelling "ma ma," and I couldn't be happier. We'll see how the rest of the night goes -- well, it's the morning and the rest of tomorrow that I'm more interested in -- and we'll go from there. Melatonin, could you really be the happy pill? We shall see my new little friend, we shall see.
