zealous1 replied to topic 17 month old wont eat meat or veg! HELP!

I've read in a lot of places to not make a big fuss about eating with toddlers... so as long as she is eating something you're doing well. I think most toddlers go through a fussy stage. Personal...

zealous1 replied to topic 22month year old wont sleep through the night :(

I would start with teaching him how to 'self settle'. There are lots of books out there if you are really wanting to do this. I know some people aren't keen on some of the authors, but I got a lot ...

zealous1 replied to topic Very devastated single mum

Hey Vicki That's awesome that you tried so hard to get him to meet you and your daughter. It's totally devastating that he refused... I'm in no way sticking up for him, as what he did was unforgiv...

zealous1 replied to topic How do you stop yourself from shouting back?

I've just read a book that suggests putting behaviour like this back into the child's court. You could try, walking him to his room without saying anything, then putting him in his room and say 'pl...

zealous1 replied to topic fussy 3 old - to make him sit at the table till he's finished or not?

I totally agree with your post. That's what I've been doing and apart from picking a few peas out, my son eats everything. Cheers.

zealous1 replied to topic 14months learning to walk

I don't think they need props. They learn when they are ready... no point pushing them into it before they can handle the balance and not fall all the time. My boy just started walking at 15 months...

zealous1 replied to topic My 15 month old wont let me brush her teeth

I asked plunket about this same issue and they said it was fine for toddlers to suck the toothpaste (the milk one) and it was very normal. Also they don't recommend children spit out anymore, they ...

zealous1 started new topic Highchair manners

My son, 15 months, is dropping food off the highchair again when he's finished eating. We got through the previous saga of this when he was around nine months and now it's back again. What do you...

zealous1 replied to topic Milk

500ml of calcium at that age is normal... I don't think it matters in what form. Good luck.

zealous1 replied to topic Time out

Toddlers can learn cause and effect very quickly actually (i.e. you throw food, you go in cot for a few minutes)... it won't take them long to stop the behaviour so long as the cot isn't too much f...

zealous1 replied to topic Negative comments on extended breastfeeding/self weaning....

Well done on feeding for so long. I've just had to stop at 13 months (I have to have an operation) and it was really really painful for 2 weeks (so painful I was crying often and wondered if I had ...

zealous1 replied to topic 12Mth old Fussy eater

Don't beat yourself up too much, sometime after one, children's appetite drop as they aren't growing quite as much as in the first year. I also agree with the above, less milk. I do milk in the mo...

zealous1 replied to topic toddler sleeping in the day

My 13.5 month boy sleeps 11 hours at night and anything from 1 hr to 2.5 during the day (in one nap)... I find it hard not knowing how long I'll get each day. He isn't walking yet.

zealous1 replied to topic when did your toddler drop to one nap?

My boy dropped to one nap around 11 months I was very sad. He wakes somewhere between 6 & 7 but I don't get him up til 7am Nap 11am-1pm Bed 7:30pm I miss two naps... and even though I wanted to...

zealous1 replied to topic Still not sleeping through the night!!!!

I know this doesn't work for everyone and isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it worked for me. If your child is waking at the same sort of time every night you could try this. Go into your child ha...

I know it's not quite the same situation but our boy took at least two weeks to settle again after we just changed him into a new room, same bed. It's probably just new surroundings, new shadows et...

My mum told me when a child bites to shove your finger in their mouth and say no. Another thing that works for me is giving my boys wrist a little squeeze (til it hurts him a tiny bit) and say No b...

zealous1 replied to topic Lunch ideas please for a 16 month old

For eggs have you tried quiche. My son loves to feed himself quiche and it has a bit more flavour than plain old egg if you add bacon or something
