Entries for 'Alison'

On a recent visit, I encountered an extremely distressing situation. I was asked to come and see this delightful 5-month-old who was literally screaming the place down at bedtime, not sleeping day or night, not taking his breastmilk feeds properly and the whole household was at breaking point.

This amazing little girl is now nearly four years old and was — at the age of two, labeled with ‘Global Development Delay’ as she wasn’t hitting the expected milestones.   (Read this blog post on Medium: https://medium.com/@magicsleepfairy/its-just-a-bit-of-colic-they-said-she-will-grow-out-of-it-4c18b1bb7b32)
