I asked my gp if there is anything he can prescribe for my LO who is turning 3 in a few months that can make him a little bit drowsy so that we can get him to go to sleep in his own bed. Just for maximum 3 nights so that he can get used to the idea. (We have tried before and me and hubby just ended fighting and getting very jumpy with each other because of the lack of sleep) Is allergex safe to use?

It is very unsafe to use medication to modify a child's behaviour. It will therefore, be unethical for me to advise a product to make your child sleepy. Instead make sure that he is awake and active during the day, to ensure that he/she is tired at night. Avoid drinks like coffee, coke, fizzy drinks or tea with caffeine and limit sweets intake.

Try a night light. Maybe u should sit with him for a while to get him to sleep. If he comes back to your room DONT let him sleep in your bed. Take him back to his bed and carry on doing this. He will eventually understand, it may take a while but in the long run it is worth it. Dont give him medicine. Read him a story in his bed.
