Sleep: the challenges come in all shapes and sizes with small children. Today Mothercraft Nurse Chris Minogue advises how to get a catnapping 15 weeker to keep sleeping, a nine month old and 13 month old to re-settle, and a three year old to get to sleep independently at night. Also, can you get a two year old to play on their own for more than a minute?

Find out more about Chris Minogue and her book Bringing Baby Home on the publisher's website.
