Can my 3 year old have a pill?

I have a son of three years and he sleeps all little from birth. You might say that you do during the day should notice him, but during the day he is very active. He goes in the evening at 7 o’clock to bed and then have his lamp remain otherwise he screams all together, because he is very afraid of the dark. So I do half an hour later when he sleeps his light. Usually it is at night several times wake up crying.

It’s all very exhausting for us. Especially since it is already three years is so. Now I hear of acquaintances different opinions. Some say it’s up to his bedroom, which is very small and quite dark. Others say that it is a period that would help a sleeping pill. But may I give a little one or a sleeping pill?

Mrs. Hiem

, pediatrician:

You should never give a child a sleeping pill! For many children, there is apparently something that they like them at night to wake up not immediately fall asleep again. This may have to do with fear of the dark, scary things, or the very fact that he is alone in his bed.

However, in all cases the wake remain a cause. Changing the environment will not matter much. Whether you are now waking up in a big or small, blue or pink room, the feeling of fear or loneliness is nothing to it.

It is important to see where these fears come from. Some children are naturally anxious and others have been through something. I know of course the situation further, but would seek more in that corner.

Again, it experienced child psychologists applies usually have little difficulty to overcome sleep problems. Especially since it’s been so long, I think you should go with your son here. When a sleep problem does not resolve, the blocks in a sense, the development of the child.
