This kind of sleep problem can be very draining. It is important to be sure that your son's sleep problem is purely due to a habit that he has developed or if he has something which interferes with his sleep.The single most common cause to exclude is a blocked nose. If he does not have a blocked nose and you have tried controlled crying, you will need to consider another option. The use of the natural hormone Melatonin has been tried in situations like this. He will need the liquid form of melatonin. Please discuss this with your pharmacist.
