Question: My one year old has a very nasty habit of biting especially when she is excited or frustrated. This weekend she bit an older child and I'm really concerned as to how I can stop this. When she does it to me I say NO firmly and distract to something else ? Any tips ? Answer: It is such a difficult situation when your baby is the culprit. You must feel really sad and concerned.

Perhaps adding fat to the fire, my husband and I had to go away for 2 weeks at the beginning of October...

Q:Our baby girl was born 12 weeks premature. She is now 16 months old and enjoys a good health, it’s just that sleeping and eating remains a problem. We bought the Sleep Sense book and following the sleep couching technique the best we can. We really try not for her to cry when going to sleep in the evenings as she will vomit in a split second – and it’s really not pleasant to re-clean everything and everybody each night. Even when I stay in the room with her, she starts crying and will vomit.Apart from vomiting, when she wakes in the night, usually by 00:20, she insists that I attend...

Q: Dear Baby SenseI need your advice please. My 3 year old daughter has been potty trained to make a wee-wee for more than a year already, she also doesn’t wear a nappy at night or when she sleeps during the day anymore, but she still refuses to make a pooh in the toilet. I would like to sketch the situation to you and would really appreciate some help or advice. Around her second birthday, we started potty training her. She didn’t really ever have a problem indicating to me when she needed to make a wee-wee. She had one or two incidents of wetting her pants only and that really went...
