sleep


A couple of months ago Luz went through a long period of very very bad sleep. She would wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake for hours. This pattern went on for about six weeks and it didn't seem to disturb her. Mum and Dad were, on the contrary, forgetting things and bumping into everything, totally exhausted. It went as it came, with no obvious sign of any external factor that would give us a clue as why she wasn't sleeping. Dad has been doing some research and found some interesting things about melatonin related to sleep regulation. It seems children with Luz's chromosome anomaly (and also children with autism) commonly suffer from sleep disorders and many have benefited by taking supplements of melatonin. We haven't tried it but we'll give it a thought if Luz goes through another terrible sleeping spell (it's natural and has no side effects).
