    A friend of mine attended a conference in Canberra last year with his 6 month old daughter and there was no creche so I entertained the baby while Dad presented ably assisted by numerous Pacific colleagues when questions coincided with witching hour and we had to leave the conference room. Pity there wasn’t someone able to offer a similar service for this parent.
