whether diphenhydramine (Benadryl, etc) helps infants sleep

Experts are now questioning whether diphenhydramine (Benadryl, etc) helps infants sleep.

Many pediatricians occasionally recommend antihistamines to help young children sleep. This is based on old research suggesting that diphenhydramine is helpful for children over 2 years old.

But new evidence suggests that diphenhydramine doesn't help babies 6 to 15 months fall or stay asleep.
