Home Visiting Program
In the first months of a baby’s life, it’s challenging for parents to meet baby’s round-the-clock needs as well as their own. We understand that at this stage, getting out of the house with or without baby is daunting; therefore, Fussy Baby Network infant specialists come to you. When we meet with you in your home, we will discuss your concerns and offer support and information. We will talk together about your baby’s day, think about strategies to soothe and calm your baby, and explore ways that you can enjoy your baby and take better care of your own needs. We offer reasonable fees on a sliding scale — no family will be turned away for financial reasons.
Fussy Baby Network Clinic
“Is my baby really okay?” parents of fussy babies may worry. We provide an opportunity for parents to share their concerns about their baby’s health and physical development with a specially trained behavioral and developmental pediatrician. When you are receiving Fussy Baby Network services, our consulting pediatrician can examine your baby and discuss your baby’s health, development, temperament, and unique patterns of behavior. The Fussy Baby clinic visit at Erikson Institute is scheduled by the infant specialist who is working with the family.
Fussy Baby Network Caring Parents Groups
Parents have needs too. It’s good to get dressed, get out of the house, and meet other parents to socialize, laugh, and learn. Our groups are led by an infant specialist who will create a warm, relaxed atmosphere where you can unwind as you learn more about topics such as helping a fussy baby sleep, life after colic, or infant massage. Groups are formed on an as-needed basis.
