  • How long should a child have a dummy

  • Why a two-and-a-half-year-old might be suddenly scared of things like the bath, the wind, and even birds
  • Could toilet training be impacting a two-and-a-half-year-olds' day and night sleep
  • When is the best time to transition a 21-month-old from cot to a big bed
