Helpline: Night-waking toddlers, tantrums and the pros and cons of dummies

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Parents tend not to use the expression “sleep like a baby” if it’s referring to someone sleeping soundly. As one midwife put it “babies are born to feed not sleep”. Helpline is here to help you manage your baby’s sleep rhythms so that they work as well as they can. This episode we’re joined by sleep consultant Jo Ryan.

Babyology has just launched the BabyBliss Sleep Support, a baby sleep program designed by Jo Ryan for Parent School – if you’re interested in setting up good habits and understanding where your baby is at developmentally, you should check it out.

In celebration of the launch of this brilliant sleep program, you can get $20 OFF BabyBliss Sleep Support by using the code BABYBLISS20 at the checkout to get full access to Jo’s proven settling techniques, handy routine guides for up to 12 months, plus our Baby Cry Library to help decipher baby’s needs. Hurry – because this special offer ends on 14 February 2021!

In this episode of Helpline, Jo helps parents with the following questions:

  • A seven-month-old waking through the night
  • Should you keep using a dummy with a seven-week-old?
  • How to settle a 14-week-old baby
  • How to manage an 18-month-old’s violent tantrums
  • A 13-month-old struggling with their second nap
