Helpline: Attached four-year-olds, dropping day naps, sleep routines and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

If you’re looking for some tips to cut through the fog of sleeplessness, mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue is your woman.

Chris is here to help you see the bigger picture, and navigate your way to a better night’s sleep (or less conflict at mealtimes, better ways to get a toddler in the car etc). Having helped parents for over 30 years there are few questions she can’t answer.

In this episode of Helpline she tackles:

  • Getting a 19-month-old off their milk bottles
  • Helping a six-year-old with ADD sleep
  • An attached four-year-old who constantly wants her mother’s attention
  • How to transition a five-and-a-half-year-old off day naps
  • When is a baby capable of not feeding overnight
  • Sleep routines for an eight-and-a-half-month-old
  • A six-month-old who has started sleeping badly (after sleeping well)
