As a parents of five children, my husband and I need to be able to get as much sleep as possible. And with a newborn in the house, neither of us are sleeping as much as we need to! Since I am nursing, I am awake quite a bit more with the baby. My husband gets up with our older children so I can get just a little bit more sleep in the morning. Luckily, they don't get up extremely early and he's able to get a decent amount of sleep if he gets to bed on time.
In general, you could consider my husband a night owl. For him to get to bed at an earlier time than he's used to on his second shift schedule, Melatonin is a natural way for him to achieve this. NATROL was kind enough to send us a sample of their strawberry flavored Melatonin and he was able to give it a try. I'm happy to report that he said he fell asleep about 25-30 minutes after taking the capsule.
Straight from Joe, "I really enjoyed trying out this product. I work nights, so my schedule is different from my family's. With my wife now nursing our newborn around the clock, it's important for her to get sleep sometime too. If I can keep the kids busy in the mornings so she sneak some sleep in, I'm happy to do so. At first, I couldn't settle in early enough and was tired the next day. But with the Melatonin, I was able to fall asleep and stay asleep so I'm rested enough. My wife and I work better as a team, especially during this time in our lives. The entire household runs better when we are both getting enough sleep."
You can buy NATROL's Melatonin at many popular retailers such as Amazon.com, Wal-Mart, CVS, and many more. As always, contact your physician before starting any new supplements.
