Moms with a Chronic Illness along with a Newborn (who is also colicky) – How to survive!

January 19, 2021

Introducing a Mini-Series here on Kratom Girl YouTube channel on tips and advice for getting through normal life situations but with a chronic illness. This video is about Moms w/ a Chronic Illness to Newborns (who are also colicky) —- Very little is found on YouTube in support of mothers who have a colicky baby but who also lives with a chronic illness/pain.

I didn’t have much help at all, let alone advice that actually was for a mom like me.
