Q.

Rescue Remedy

Hi
I wanted to know if it' s safe to give my 18month old Rescue Remedy tablet? he' s not irritable or anything. Just some nights where he wakes up at about 2am and does not go back to sleep at all. he wants to play. So I just need something to calm him down a bit.
is there anything else you can recommend. I' m a bit sceptical about the rescue drops becos of the alcohol content. and putting it on his wrists because he has a very sensitive skin.

Thank you

If you are going to use a Rescue product in such a young child, it would be best to use the drops rather than a tablet.
