My son isn’t comfortable swallowing pills whole, so when we give him his nightly melatonin we have to crush it up first and mix it with a little juice. My sister-in-law recommended trying a liquid form of melatonin that you can spray in your mouth (thanks sis). This week we decided to give it a try. We bought NutraSpray Melatonin by Source Naturals at a local Whole Foods market.
So far it’s been a success. My son sprays two squirts under his tongue and holds it there for a few moments before swishing it in his mouth and swallowing. Each spray contains 1.5 mg of Melatonin, the bottle holds 80 sprays. It even has an orange flavor to make it tolerable. The price was a little higher than the tablet form, but worth it for the convenience.
Wishing you all some fun “family time” this Memorial Day.
