Firstly, how are u and ur babies doing. Are u back to work?
Well, abt medicines for sleep. I am really not sure if u shuld go ahead with it. Yes a lot of parents do that so they can have some peace. Infact, i was even aprrehensive abt giving colic aid to my daughter, who is 2 now, as that causes drowsiness. Infact , my ped simply put it, want a good nites sleep..give it to ur child.. very sacastically. Though i longed for some sleep in the first 8-10 months of Anushas life i realised that i wanted a healthy child and not just a lil sleep. Today she is 2 and knock on wood, Sleeps at 9:30 up at 08:00 and sleeps thru the night.
SO i dont think u really need it, all u need is patience.Think about it as an investment towards ur childs future and health. After , i believe, all we can give our children is health : physical, emotional and mental health.
