MY Grandaughter who is 3 years and 10 months is very restless

Customer Question

MY Grandaughter who is 3 years and 10 months is very restless at night. She goes to bed at around 7.30 exhausted as she does not nap now and is at nursery in the morning but she kicks around all night very restless does not seem to settle although she does not wake up.

Is there something we can give her to clam her down a bit.

Hi--potentially benadryl or melatonin might help her sleep more peacefully but at her age you shouldn't give her either of those without her doctor's permission so I'd suggest you ask her doctor about that

sorry i am not going to give her anything like that
