My most challenging cases have always been the cases I've learnt the most from. This case study was not actually from my work as a night nanny but from my day job so to speak. I was working as a member of management at a Day Nursery and was in charge of the Baby Unit. Names have been changed.
Baby Victoria aged 10 months old, At fulltime nursery and needs to be held and rocked to fall and stay asleep both at naptime and overnight.
I met baby Vicky when she was 7 months old, a gorgeous little girl with a passionate fiesty spirit. Vicky was a quiet observant little girl but if she was upset boy did we know about it.

Vickys mum had recently returned to to work and up until heading back to work had been babywearing & breast fed Vicky on demand.
