Our Fussy Baby Clinic provides a unique one-stop comprehensive service for families of babies and toddlers (0 to 2 years old) with crying, feeding, settling and sleeping problems.
Fussy Baby Clinic
– assessment, management, counselling and education regarding all aspects of infant care and behaviour.
Our team’s philosophies are based around a warm, compassionate approach while incorporating the latest research evidence into our family-centred practice.
Our paediatricians and nurses have all practised through the Royal Children’s Hospital or the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, and most also have first hand experience as mothers.
Each family will see a paediatrician and a clinical nurse consultant for a combined medical assessment of the child’s crying, feeding, settling or sleeping problems.
A comprehensive and individualised management plan will be provided.
If required, each family will also be offered in-home support by a clinical nurse consultant with extensive experience in infant and toddler sleep strategies, settling techniques and behavioural support.
