Helpline: Pooping nappers, day sleep refusal and night waking screamers

Posted in Feed Play Love.

When it comes to sleep, most parents can’t get enough of it. For their babies and for themselves. But sleep isn’t always smooth sailing. When your child isn’t sleeping it can feel like they never will, but when you have the right expert answer your question, they can provide the little tweak that takes you all to snooze town.

On Helpline this week Mothercraft nurse and Parent School expert Chris Minogue was on hand to help everyone get more sleep (along with other curly parenting questions). Chris helped with the following situations:

  • How to manage an 11-month-old’s day sleep while dropping a four-year-old off to kindy
  • A three-year-old who is taking hours to go back to sleep at night
  • A four-year-old who has been moody since her baby brother arrived
  • A three-year-old waking up distressed in the middle of the night
    For more information on night terrors check out this podcast The Promise of Sleep or read this article.
  • A four-year-old who puts toys in their undies every night at bedtime
  • A two-year-old who is not sleeping well during the day
  • A nine-month-old who poops at every nap (and wont go back to sleep after a nappy change)
  • Three-year-old twins and night time toilet accidents
  • Advice on normal sleep patterns for two-year-olds
  • Can an eight-month-old with two teeth eat rice, bread and beef mince?
