Helpline: How to stop rocking a baby to sleep, night toilet training and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

The world might be battling a pandemic, but children don’t know the difference. For our smallest humans the world keeps on turning, and each day can bring new challenges.

If your baby’s not sleeping, or your toddler keeps hitting in your face, it might be time to call in the experts.

Every week, Helpline invites an experienced expert on the show to answer your questions.

This week we’re joined by sleep consultant, Jo Ryan from Babybliss. If you’d like to book a private consultation with Jo or another of our experts, check out Babyology’s Sleep School.

In this episode she helps parents and carers with the following challenges:

  • Getting a three-year-old back to previous bedtime (before day nap was dropped)
  • Stretching the morning wake time for a twelve-week-old
  • How to transition an eighteen-month-old from rocking to sleep to settling in a cot
  • A fussy-eating two-year-old
  • A three-year-old who doesn’t want to wear pull-ups to bed (but still has a wet nappy in the morning)
  • Getting an eleven-month-old to sleep beyond 5am
  • Getting an eight-week-old to sleep better after 1am (currently waking up every hour)
  • What it means when a six-and-a-half-month-old pulls their ear
