Helpline: Toddler tantrums, small kids struggling with lockdown and more

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Babies and small children are growing and changing every day. Sometimes they change so quickly that what worked one day no longer works the next. Helpline is here to give you the guidance you need to get back on track. This episode Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue joins the show to help parents and carers with the following:

  • A 19-month-old who is pushing boundaries
  • The amount of milk feeds an 8-month-old should have per day
  • A 5-month-old waking through the night and early in the morning
  • A 3-year-old who has turned into a terror when home from day care
  • A 2.4-year-old who is finding it hard to go to sleep
  • A 15-month-old who is biting everyone and everything
  • What to start first with a 3-year-old: toilet training or transitioning to a bed
  • A 3.5 -year-old struggling in lockdown
  • How to calm down a 3.5-year-old in the height of a tantrum
