Baby Constipation Solution
Poor baby Knox has had terrible constipation since 9 months of age. He would try desperately to hold it in. Alecia has gone through many trials and errors, but has found that encouragement is the best method possible. Through encouraging Knox to go to the bathroom, Alecia and her husband have seemed to overcome the constipation hurdle and step into the realm of potty training.

Quick Tip - Baby Toy Safety Rule
Alecia shares a quick tip about baby toy safety. Avoid choking hazards using the "toilet paper tube test". If a toy is small enough to fit through a toilet paper tube, it's too small for Baby.
