I use to get my boys all ready for bed and then we would get the box of sleep time tea out. Make the cup and they would drink while they watched a bed time show. They love the tea but the suggestion of it making them sleepy worked. We went shopping and bought together and I explained to them that it helps relax for bed. Funny thing when they are feeling sick now they still ask for it. Hope it works for your little one. Amazing the power if suggestion!!!
