[ - ] Has anyone else had a toddler who absolutely loses it when you try to cut their toenails? I'm at my wits end with mine. He's fine with the fingernails. Doesn't love it, but deals. He cannot handle the toenails. I've tried all sorts of approaches. Incentives, threats, stern talks. He acts like the idea of cutting his toenails is on par with stabbing him. I try when he's asleep, but I get two toes in and he's up and swatting me away. Physically restraining him doesn't even work. Wth. Any tips? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Melatonin doesn't knock you out, it just puts you in a deeper sleep once you're asleep so the extended is more beneficial for quality sleep. The bigger initial hit you get from a higher dose will not keep you asleep and will give you crazy dreams too. [ Reply | More ]
