Success Story
Sometimes the simplest information is the most effective. Janice was a mom who attended the McMan Baby Matters program to talk about her struggles with her baby not sleeping more than 1-2 hours at a time and how that was negatively impacting her life. After spending time with other moms, and talking with the facilitator, she was able to use the information to help her baby sleep. This mom was very grateful for what seemed like such simple information.
