The Potty Training Poop Wheel


The color, consistency and frequency of bowel movements are an excellent way to assess your baby’s health. The color of poop varies depending on how quickly it travels through the gastrointestinal tract. To help mothers everywhere readily diagnose their baby’s health, the
Mommy Docs created the Poop Wheel. The Mommy Docs are quick to point out that "the frequency and consistency of the poop, and the overall state of the baby also need to be assessed. Always contact your physician right away with any concerns."
