Helpline: Getting rid of dummies, managing tantrums and defiant children

Posted in Feed Play Love.

In our first Helpline show for 2021, we are joined by Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue as we tackle the challenges parents are facing. On this episode those challenges include:

  • A four-year-old with poor sleeping habits, and no consistency at dad’s place
  • A two-and-a-half-year-old who is not napping at all, and getting very cranky as a result
  • How to get rid of a two-year-old’s much-loved dummy
  • A six-and-a-half-month-old who won’t sleep at night without a breastfeed
  • How to get a nine-month-old back into their own bed after a bout of illness 
  • A four-month-old who is rolling onto their tummy but can’t roll back
  • A fifteen-month-old who has started tantrums – and doesn’t seem to stop
  • A three-month-old who doesn’t seem to like other people
  • How to wean a two-year-old off their final breastfeed
  • How to manage a defiant four-year-old
  • How to wean a six-month-old off dummy dependence
