Helpline: Tongue ties, overnight waking, dropping the day sleep

Sleep at daycare

It’s no secret that being a parent or carer can be a pretty tough gig. To try and make that gig just a little bit easier, we have Helpline with mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue. Every week on the Feed Play Love podcast we ask for your parenting questions and conundrums and put them to Chris.

With over 35 years experience as a mothercraft nurse and antenatal educator, Chris can help with almost everything going on in your little one’s life.

In this episode of Helpline, Chris looks at the following areas:

  • Knowing if and when a two-and-a-half-year-old is ready to drop their day sleep
  • Continual night waking with a three-year-old
  • Maintaining a good sleep routine while treating a tongue tie in a 14-month-old
  • Stopping a 17-month-old from constantly waking for one to two hours overnight every night
