“ A Fussy Baby Infant Specialist called me, and she was so wonderful. I was bawling on the phone at work. I was so stressed out. Our child care provider was saying we needed to meet her needs without picking her up. The infant specialist was a lifesaver to me and gave me the confidence I needed to do what was best for my child. ”

“ It was extremely challenging to come to terms with the mix of conflicted emotions that dealing with a fussy baby produced in me. I felt inadequate and ashamed to share my fears and concerns with other moms. The Fussy Baby Network gave me the confidence to enjoy motherhood and build a relationship with my babies built on love, nurturing, and mutual understanding. ”
