It's an amino acid that is in the turkey. It's called Tryptophan.

It was all natural deli turkey. Im sure it was the trypthopahn...thats why I tried it.
I think probably any turkey would work....I had about 3 pieces of it.

I don't really think that turkey idea works.  I eat turkey every day and the most baby's ever slept is 5 hours straight.  He's 12 weeks old.
