Helpline: Cat napping toddlers, unsettled premmies, bottle refusal and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Babies and small children can be curious creatures. One day they’re doing one thing (like sleeping through the night) the next it’s another (like waking up every two hours). Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue has been helping families for over thirty years. She can step back and explain the bigger picture, with tips to help you get things back on track.

On this episode of Helpline this includes:

  • A 16-month-old who cat naps during the day
  • Breastfeeding challenges and an unsettled premmie baby
  • A seven-month-old who is not taking bottles
  • Getting a 13-month-old to fall asleep in their cot (and not in their mother’s arms)
  • Whether breastfed babies need water
  • Toilet training a two-year-old boy
  • A 22-month-old who is struggling with daycare
  • A three-year-old who is acting out now there is another baby in the house
