What our parents say
To all the Tresillian Nurses ( Angels), I cannot believe the change in our son from such a short time under your guidance. Your kindness and extra special support gave me the skills and confidence to be the Mum I want to be. Thank you for bringing colour back to the world.
—  Hannah
I gave birth to my first child in September 1990. Everything with the birth went well but when we were discharged and went home a week later my baby was very unsettled so I took him to the pediatric specialist who advised me there was nothing wrong with my baby. We went home but he continued crying, not drinking and suffering from constipation. I then decided to find another pediatrician for a second opinion and when he examined my baby he advised me that he was suffering from reflux. We ended up at the children’s hospital, as he was very dehydrated and unwell. We stayed in hospital for a week where the pediatrician then decided to refer us to Tresillian in Petersham. The Tresillian nursing staff were magnificent, from settling him, to making his formula with cornflour milk. The nursing staff showed me how to keep him in a 4 hourly routine and showed me various settling techniques. Without their support and help I would not have been able to cope. I went on to have 2 more children and use the same techniques taught to me by the staff at Tresillian. I couldn’t thank them enough. My children are now aged, 29, 27 and 17. I am forever grateful to the wonderful staff at Petersham Tresillian.

Thank you thank you thank you! Your Nepean residential nurses were awesome for us and our little boy is sleeping so much better now, only 3 1/2 months old and although you gave me the confidence and patience to settle him hands on, he now actually seems to prefer to self-settle with his dummy within minutes of putting him to bed- we now have quiet evenings back and only one middle of the night wake up- and I am enjoying this me with my boy 1000x more... highly recommend for parents who are struggling with settling or feeding their little ones.
