Helpline: Early morning toddlers, co-sleeping transitions, tummy time and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Whether your baby is having all night dance parties or your toddler has decided they’re a rebel without a cause, Helpline is here to help you get life back on track. Every week we invite an expert on the show to help guide parents through the trickier parts of parenting.

This week baby sleep guru Jo Ryan joined us to answer parent questions about:

  • A 2-year-old waking up at 3.15am
  • Transitioning a co-sleeping 3-year-old into her own bed
  • Whether it’s possible to drop the day nap for an 18-month-old
  • A 5-year-old who takes four hours to get to sleep
  • Teaching a 9-month-old to self-settle
  • A 9-week-old who hates tummy time
  • Managing a 6-month-old’s sleep regression
  • How to know if an 8-week-old is getting enough breastmilk
