Helpline: Fear of pooping, veggie refusal, restless babies and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Whether you’re a first-time parent or you’re doing this for the third (fourth or fifth) time, children have a way of defying your parenting experience. When you get to a point where none of your solutions are working, it’s time to ask an expert for their advice. Today on Helpline that expert is Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue. Chris has helped thousands of families over her thirty years of practice. In this episode, she tackles the following challenges:

  • An 11-month-old who likes to stand but is afraid to walk
  • A 15-month-old who wakes very, very early
  • How to help an 18-month-old to self-settle at night
  • A five-month-old who is not sleeping well throughout the day
  • A two-and-a-half year old who is not eating his veggies
  • An almost-four-year-old who is afraid of doing a poo on the toilet
  • An eight-and-a-half-month-old who refuses to eat solids
  • A six-month-old with an unsettled sleep routine
