good morning, So, difficult child went to bed, wow. I used 6 mg. of melatonin as opposed to the usual 3 mg. that never worked, some kava kava tea before hand (she does not like that), and then I wrapped her tight in blanket (been reading alot about weighted blankets lately), brushed her arms and back.....and it happened she fell asleep!! I sat there afraid to move for like 20 min. because i was stunned and i also didn't want to wake her at all. The combo of the brushing with tightness of blanket and a few things ontop of it stuffed animals, etc. the tea melatonin i'm hopeful and surprised. she slept, get this for 9 1/2 hours, awoke at 6:30 today. who knows if it's a fluke but we now have a new bedtime ritual. By the way I did this on a night when usually she would climb quite badly, after theatre group and his kids here which always gets her overstimulated.
