What our parents say
I phoned the Parent’s Help Line at a time of complete despair after so much sleeplessness with my 10 month old baby. I hesitated even phoning because I thought I'd tried everything. The nurse took the time to understand exactly what was going on and offered very detailed advice and information. Everything she said made perfect sense. She has offered me some really practical starting points, and routine examples to suit our baby. Had I not spoken to the Nurse I can only imagine my night would have spiraled into another crying mess (both me and the baby). I really can't thank Tresillian enough. It is such an incredible service.
