Helpline: Managing tired and tantruming toddlers, dummies and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

When you’ve been up all night trying to get a baby to sleep, remembering where you left your keys is challenging – let alone working out how to solve the sleep problem! That’s where Helpline steps in to help.

Every week a Mothercraft expert is here to answer your questions – and they’ve had their sleep so they are bright-eyed and ready to help with whatever challenge you’re facing! This week Babyology Parent School expert and Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue helps families with the following:

  • A two-year-old suddenly screaming at bedtime
  • A four-year-old who is shy around adults
  • A two-and-a-half-year-old who wakes from his daytime nap cranky
  • A three-year-old refusing his day sleep and having big tantrums
  • Whether a mum should you introduce a dummy for an 11-week-old
  • How to break the cycle of an overtired five-year-old
  • A 19-month-old who tantrums when he’s not allowed out the front door
  • A three-year-old who sulks when she doesn’t get her own way
  • How to deal with sibling jealousy between a five-year-old and three-month-old
