Nausea and pregnancy: What to eat?

If you are pregnant and you don't like food, what is the best food to eat?

If food aversion is occurring due to morning sickness, which can occur, please see this document which may assist.

Additionally, we would recommend speaking with your Midwife or GP/Specialist and asking for referral to see a Maternity Dietitian. They will be able to do a full assessment and support you based on your specific individual needs. 

Please also see the Maternal Health (NEMO) resource: `Healthy eating and weight gain during pregnancy’ that covers most of the basic questions.

Trouble self settling

My 19 month old is waking through the night and demanding Mum to go back to sleep. I always patted her in the cot and shhhh and it worked. It is not working. She is expecting it. If I don't she will scream standing up in her cot. Tresillian gave some advice about not touching her and having dad do it, just talking positivity and walking in and out every couple of minutes. Obviously I can not do that. Was a great baby often self settled until she started teething. She has a dummy. We are expecting a second child any day.

7-week-old rarely sleeps

7-week-old rarely sleeps for several hours. After lots of rocking/walking in carrier baby looks like she is asleep then her eyes just open and she is looking around for a while then cries because she is so tired. This goes on for hours and hours. Sometimes she does seem to stay asleep after being placed in the bassinet and wakes up after half an hour. Then the cycle starts again. She doesn’t like pram. Very hard on my back. Weighs about 4.7 kg now. Was 9lb 4oz at birth.

Toddler sleep issues

Hi, My 4th child is 16 months old and every night he wakes on average 10 times a night. It can be every 45mins. He sleeps very well during the day for approx 3 hours 10-1. He self settles both at nap time and night time sleep. He is still having a bottle at around midnight just to try and get a longer sleep in the early hours for me. We have always had a good night routine but this sleep pattern has now been going on over 12 months and I am tired of not getting a good block of sleep. Help?

Day time naps and sleep patterns

Hello. My 5 almost 6 month old was only waking up once a night. But now she is waking up at 10.30 and will not go back to sleep. She then wakes more times throughout the night. She is sleeping well in the day, sleeping for two long naps, morning and afternoon and then one at about 4.30 and then bed at 7. But it’s just not working and I don’t know what to do anymore.

My baby is not getting enough sleep

I’m worried my baby is not getting enough sleep, or proper awake time. Night time sleep is going ok. Not so much in daylight hours though. We spend hours trying to go to sleep, then have to get up for the next feed without having slept at all. He doesn’t really cry when put in bed, mostly grizzles. I try patting, rocking, white noise, dim lights, wrapping. Then he gets over tired and sometimes frustrated. Help!
