- Question from Brianna: “ My daughter (10) has significant challenges falling asleep and has since she was one. I had to stop napping her at that age or she would be up until 12 at night. She still has a lot of problems falling asleep despite- reducing screen time (I am working on eliminating 2 hours before bed) she sleeps in a cool, dark room, etc.. Problem is-her brain doesn’t shut off. Last year I introduced Melatonin to her and it made a world of difference and she is now getting 8+ hours of sleep a night. I have heard it referenced on your show I believe by Stacy that she has used it (or maybe a family member). I have also listened to “The Model Health Show” and he reports there that taking Melatonin is very harmful and will actually stop you from making your own. Can you provide any insight to this. I don’t want to harm my daughter but I like her much better when she gets ample sleep :)”
