Mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue takes your parenting questions on  Kinderling Helpline. 

This week Chris gives advice on a car-seat houdini who has succeeded at forever wriggling out of their car seat despite all attempts to keep them restrained, recovering from a travelling illness and an irregular sleep cycle as a result, plus dropping a day sleep and navigating night time feeds.

Listen to the audio above, or watch the Facebook Live of the segment video below.
