Melatonin, a hormone: produced by the pineal gland of the brain, increases in the dark & decreases in daylight.

What can we give our 2 year old who is suffering from a summer cold so that he can sleep better at night? Tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok, anything else for sleeping?
Little noses: For that age, the goal is to keep them comfortable especially while asleep. Putting a humidifier in the room will help. If pain is an issue, then tylenol (acetaminophen) will suffice otherwise, avoid unnecessary if not needed. If congested, try nasal saline and then using the bulb suction. Also giving them a warm shower will allow the warm shower mist to open up his nasal passages to some extent. Good health. ...Read more

It can be ok.: You already take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) -- often that helps with sleep. Your body may be very used to it-- if you only take 1 tab, it might be ok to take one more. Otherwise you could try melatonin (otc) for sleep. If that does not help, see your doctor and ask about trying something by prescription for sleep. Good luck to you ! ...Read more
