Holiday Weekend-

Just think about how magical that is!


Natasha McBride has a podcast on thishttps://natashamcbride and I found it very interesting that she mentions the definition of “excessive infant crying syndrome” COLIC is an acronym standing for “Cause Obscure Lengthy Infant Crying” When parents have a baby who does this, it can be very heartbreaking and difficult to navigate, it seems like no amount of moving, rocking, bouncing,
