Good Day
My daughter is 13 months old and weighs about 12kg, maybe more. She doesnt sleep well at all since the age of 5 months. Can I give her Melatonin and how much?

First try Rescue remedy for babies.Melatonin is usually safe but its safety has not been studied in babies so I am not able to recommend its use at this stage.
