Helpline: Dummy dependence, bottle refusal, sleep separation anxiety and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Sometimes, when you’re struggling, all you need is a bit of advice to set you on the right path. When it comes to babies and small children, mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue is the one that helps hundreds of parents work out what’s really going on.

In this episode, she helps parents with:

  • A three-year-old missing his dummy at sleep-time
  • Whether a two-year-old is ready for toilet training (when daycare says she is)
  • A five-month-old that won’t take a bottle
  • Working day sleeps for an 18-month-old around events
  • A two-year-old who only wants his dad to settle him
  • A two-year-old with dummy dependence
  • Dropping a feed for four-month-old corrected twins
