Helpline: Bottle refusal, elongating day sleeps, colicky babies and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

One of the biggest challenges with small children is sleep. Whether it’s trying to stretch cat naps into proper day sleeps, or getting a three-year-old to stay in her bed all night, most of us have had to deal with a sleep challenge at some point.

Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue is here to help. She’ll answer questions from sleep to feeding and behavioural issues.

In this episode of Helpline, Chris helps parents with the following challenges:

    • A six-month-old who refuses a bottle
    • A 19-month-old who is still having two day sleeps
    • The best time to wake an 18-month-old in the morning
    • A one-month-old with colic
    • A two-and-a-half-year-old who won’t stay in bed at night
    • A shy 18-month-old
    • Transitioning an 18-month-old to one day sleep
