Half of what ?: Your question stopped at "half of" so there is no way we can answer your question unless you start over and complete it. Your submissions are not linked, so each must have background and a relevant question.I rarely use any sleep meds in kids at that age, but 5 mg of OTC melatonin may help her if she needs it.
