If your son is 8yo and has encopresis, is there a type of diaper I can buy in order to prevent the smell?

You're lucky: A new baby that sleeps. Wow, I wish I had one of those. The baby is growing like weeds and all the enrgy is going into that. As the rate of growth slows, there will be less sleeping. Don't worry, but don't make other mothers jealous ...Read more
