Perhaps it is the comfort in knowing that their fiber is on-point, constipation is a non-issue, or really only god-knows-what… but most parents will tell you that the poopy face is one part satisfaction and the other part comic relief (and as a parent parent, you’ll definitely need a lot of … Keep Reading!!!

They will almost always find out what’s going on. The question becomes how do we help them understand and cope without … Keep Reading!!!
