Helpline: Preparing bub #1 for a sibling, overhauling bad sleep habits and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

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.

Listen to Chris on Feed Play Love

In this episode, Chris answers your questions on the following topics:

  • Preparing a 23-month-old for a sibling, should they sleep in separate rooms and whether or not to delay their toilet training
  • Undoing bad sleep habits with a 19.5-month-old
  • Could night terrors be the source of a three-year-old’s constant overnight waking
  • How to articulate the need for friendly “gentleness” to a boisterous and “rough” 18-month-old
  • Why a 10-month-old would be constantly waking overnight and refusing to self settle. Could teething be the culprit?
