Q.

22 month old and sleep &  food

How much sleep does a 22month need? And how much milk must she drink? I also heard that Rooibos tea is bad for her. Is this true?

About 11 hours at night and 2 hours during the day is the usual recommendation.She only needs abot 2 cups [600ml] of milk per day. Rooibos tea is good for her as long as it only forms part of her normal fluid intake and she is eating a good normal diet.
