Helpline: Routines and rhythms for the family and napping during long car trips

Posted in Feed Play Love.

It’s coming to the end of quite a weird and wonderful year, but it’s fair to say that babies and small children don’t know when it’s time to give mum and dad a break. If you’ve found yourself struggling to get your baby to sleep or eat, or there is another challenge in your life, it’s time to ask an expert for help.

Every week an expert from Babyology’s Parent School joins host Shevonne Hunt to answer your questions.

This week on Helpline Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue joins us to ask the following questions:

  • How to help a six-month-old sleep better through the night
  • Getting a feed, play, sleep routine set up for a three-month-old to help set up a family rhythm (with a three-year-old)
  • A 15-month-old who squeals all day (and her mum would like a break)
  • An 18-month-old who needs to rub their parent’s ear in order to fall asleep
  • Is my four-week-old sleeping too long at night?
  • How can I get my eight-month-old to sleep during a three-hour car trip?
  • A two-and-a-half-year-old who wakes multiple times at night
  • How to manage late nights for a three-year-old over Christmas
  • How to help a ten-and-a-half-month-old sleep beyond 5AM
