VJ is struggling to look after baby Luc and study at the same time, but will he accept an offer and give up the baby's care full-time?

VJ is trying his best to look after Luc in the wake of Billie's death in Home and Away. But looking after a needy newborn when you're trying to study isn't easy. As the long nights and tears take their toll on the student, he loses his rag with the baby…

Meanwhile, Leah is struggling too, but fails to see how her son is trying to tell her he can no longer cope with the situation as it is. When Irene extends an offer to take baby Luc, will VJ accept her help?
