Helpline: Finger-sucking, comforter attachment, shopping dramas and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Babies change at such a rapid rate in their first year, you can get on top of something and then the next day it changes. Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue is here to help guide you through the constantly shifting sands of the baby and toddler years. With over 30 years of experience, she can get to the heart of what’s going on for your child.

On this episode of Helpline Chris gives advice for:

  • How to keep a two-year-old with febrile seizures safe during episodes
  • Getting a talkative 19-month-old to go back to sleep in the morning
  • Stopping a three-year-old from finger-sucking
  • A day nap schedule for a 10-month-old
  • Weaning a two-year-old off constant comforter attachment
  • A 15-month-old who won’t stay still during grocery shopping
  • A three-year-old who doesn’t want to use the toilet
  • An early-waking four-month-old
  • A five-month-old who won’t sleep in his cot
  • A six-month-old who wakes at 4.20am on the dot
