Erikson Institute Fussy Baby Network[R] (FBN) developed an approach to engaging parents around their urgent concerns about their baby's crying, sleeping, or feeding in a way which builds their longer-term capacities as parents. This approach, called the FAN, is now in place in new Fussy Baby Network programs around the country and is being infused into existing home visiting programs as well. This article describes the core processes of the FAN, how to match these processes with what the parent needs in the moment, and illustrates the approach in three exemplary FBN national program sites in Arizona, California, and Colorado.
