When Herbert was in his early twenties he married Amanda. She gave birth to their son, Jeffrey, just over nine months from the wedding.
Jeffrey was a fussy baby but Herbert had the money to hire a Nanny. For the first year of his life Jeffrey had three care givers.
The Nanny left to take up another job, Amanda did her best, but they had to hire another care giver, at least to spend the night, for Jeffrey needed a lot of attention.
There was nothing physically wrong with him.
Herbert and Amanda had gone from pediatrician to pediatrician, and none found anything wrong with Jeffrey.
Save a need for attention.
