Helpline: Setting up breastfeeding, sibling rivalry, potty poos and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Life with small humans can be busy. Throw a spanner in the works, like a baby who won’t sleep or a toddler who keeps throwing their dinner on the floor, and you can be pulling your hair out in frustration. That’s where Helpline steps in. We provide the experts and you can ask your questions.

This week Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue joins the show to help parents with the following conundrums: 

  • How to set up breastfeeding with your second child when the first child was difficult
  • A 2-year-old who is jealous of their baby brother
  • A 12-month-old who is crying and whinging until picked up
  • A 9-month-old who is whining during mealtimes
  • A 12-month-old sleep regression after illness
  • How to introduce a new baby to a 21-month-old
  • A 1-year-old who still doesn’t sleep through the night
  • A 2.4-year-old who won’t poo in the potty
  • An 18-month-old who doesn’t like her hair being washed
  • Introducing formula to an exclusively breastfed 1-year-old
