Being a parent is as exhausting as it is exciting. Sometimes it can all get a bit much. You can feel like you've tried everything to try and get your toddler to eat something other than pasta, or maybe you 18 month old refuses to ditch the dummy. 

Mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue takes your parenting questions every week, trying to help those parents who feel like they've tried everything.

In this episode Chris tackles swaddle safety for a three month old, a 2 year old who demands they be carried down the stairs, a mum at her wits end when it comes to dummy ditching and much more.
