Helpline: Constipated babies, toilet training, medicine refusal and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Raising children can be challenging. Just when you think you have it all worked out, the sleeper will stop sleeping. The eater will stop eating. When you can’t find a rhyme or reason to challenging behaviour, Helpline has you covered. Each week an expert joins the show to answer your specific question. On this episode Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue helps parents with the following challenges:

  • 7-month-old struggling to poo
  • Toilet training an almost 3-year-old
  • Helping a 7-week-old baby with reflux, hiccups and constipation
  • A 20-month-old who has stopped self-settling at night
  • A 4.5-year-old who is refusing medicine
  • A 16-month-old who won’t sleep in his cot
  • A 4.5-year-old who needs – the meditation mentioned in this answer is Kinderling Kids Radio’s Bedtime Explorers.
