We use GNC sub-lingual cherry flavored pills. Daniel doesn't keep them under his tongue either but they still work. He's been melatonin since before he was 2 and he's 4 now.

I just started looking into this for Ellie and myself. Amazon.com seems to have a large selection of melotonin liquid in different flavors and most of them didn't say anything about needing to be held under the tounge. Most use a dropper but one I noticed seemed more like cough syrup. I can't vouch for how effective they are or how they taste but it's good to know the choices are out there since we'll definitely have to go this route. Ellie's got a strong gag reflex. There's no way she'd be able to handle the pills.
Hope this helps. If I have anything to add once we've given it a try I'll let you know.

Ok so I have a question. Did you all go the melatonin route on your own or on the advice of your doctor?

The reason I ask is because TJ usually will not fall asleep until 2-3 am, no matter how tired he is. I want to try and get him on a better schedule before this baby gets here.
