Weaning : At this age nutrition is not the issue. Security is! Try breast feeding for a while cuddling with a "blankie" that has mom smells left on it, including breast milk. Offer cups or bottles first holding the "blankie". If that does not work practice saying "no" or take a vacation without your child and let grandma wean your baby. ...Read more

Practice (1) saying "no" calmly but firmly; lowering your voice, when removing a forbidden object or redirecting a 6-18 mo. Old & (2) ignoring protests that ensue. ...Read more

I think my son is having night terrors hes 2 yrs. Is there anything a doctor or i could do to stop/prevent them ? How should I comfort him during them
Awaken before..: If his night terrors occur at a predictable time after he falls asleep, it can sometimes help to disturb his sleep about a half hour before their onset. If they usually occur 2 hours after he falls asleep, at 1 1/2 hours go in and rearrange him in bed, sit him up for a drink, gently rub back and change his sleep cycle. This can reduce night terrors by as much as 80% in some toddlers. Worth a try! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
