Hi,

Has anyone been to QEC Early Parenting Centre (Queen Elizabeth Centre) in Victoria. We have been given a place for next week due to DS eating and sleeping problems.

But I'm very apprehensive about going?

What is it like? What should we expect? I so dont want to do CC but am at my wits end.

Hi there - where is the QEC?  I'm a bit confused about which hospital it is because I think I've heard it referred to as another name (sorry, I don't have any info for you, just a question!).

Hi again,

If that's the South Eastern Private Hospital (Noble Park) then I'm in the process of investigating that one too!  Have a look at the 'Melb Sleep Schools' thread cos somebody mentions this hospital, but I don't know if it's the same place - I think my MCHN said it is.  I completely understand your nerves - so many people say they have great results from sleep schools but I worry it would traumatise my bub!

Hope someone else has better info than me.  original.gif

Okey doke - after some investigating I think that QEC and Sth Eastern hosp are different places.  I looked up the QEC website and they have some little audio things you can listen to with settling technique tips - perhaps they're the techniques they use?

I think alot of places these days don't enforce CC and will let you do what you are comfortable with... You can always say you're not comfortable with something; I know someone who left a centre (not QEC) for that reason.  Easier to say than do I guess.  Perhaps you can ring first and ask what specifically goes on?

No luck with anyone else having any info!  Perhaps bumping this topic back to the top will help..  wink.gif

Hi there
QEC and Sth eastern hosp are different places. A friend of mine went to QEC (Noble Park) a few weeks ago for a daystay. She's very happy with the result as her DD can now self-settle to sleep with some patting. She also got rid of wrapping at the same time.
