Low dose aspirin is an excellent sleeping aid as well as a glass of milk (warm) especially for children.

When I was about six years old, I often couldn’t go to sleep because of pains in my leg muscles from running and playing during the day. My mother would often give me baby aspirin. That was many years ago when there were not any doctors who specialized in sleep problems and our family doctor told my mom that my leg problems were only growing pains.
Studies have since shown that daily low doses of aspirin are good for everyone’s heart and blood circulation so most doctors would say that it is a good habit for everyone in your family to get used to doing, especially if there is any family history of heart attacks.
Giving a child a low dose of aspirin occasionally for sleep does not make you a bad parent. A child who gets plenty of sleep and sleeps well is more likely to be happy during the day. The better a child sleeps, the better the rest of the family sleeps and that make for a much happier family.
