Hi all please help me! How do I stop my toddler from squeezing my newborn's toes when next to her in the pram?
Unfortunately I had to stop using the bassinet because she was absolutely cooking in it, but I have a mountain buggy duet (I now loathe this pram, but can't afford to change it) and he can reach her leg and foot. I recline him whenever he does it, but he just thinks it's a game or worse falls asleep which then messes up his lunchtime sleep. He is just too young to listen to me firmly telling him to stop it and pulling his hand off her and I don't know what else to do

Could you try tying a muslin cloth over the top? I used to knot it diagonally, if that makes sense? Or secure with pegs underneath..
And then I'd still have to distract and redirect my 2 y old to get her to stop. She didn't know that she was hurting baby dd2, but she was.

when my son did this to our newborn I would always do the same thing - move his hand away and say no baby is sleeping, be gentle. ok it felt like I was getting nowhere, but soon enough (felt like after 150 times)he started to somewhat get it.
