From Our Editors

Linda Gilkerson, a professor at Erikson Institute, founded the Fussy Baby Network to support families who were having difficulty with the crying, sleeping, and feeding challenges that a new baby can present. The innovative home-visit program supports any parent feeling stressed and depressed during the first months of the infant's life. To that end, she gathered social workers, counselors, psychologists, child-development specialists, and pediatricians to work together to ensure families have the most up-to-date knowledge for caring for a new baby.

Today, Fussy Baby Network, a program of the Erikson Institute, has helped more than 6,000 families in Cook County, responding to requests from parents having concerns with their infant’s excessive crying, sleeping, or feeding difficulties. A specialist will travel to parents’ homes and assist them in overcoming their specific challenges, including colic, feeding problems, and disrupted sleeping schedules. Specialists help to determine sleep schedules, reassure parents, and teach them how to communicate with their new children. Fussy Baby Network also provides mental-health and development screenings to detect if family members could benefit from additional therapy; it can then offer referrals to other professionals.
