How to order diapers

Hi,

I live in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We just received forwardhealth card (Wisconsin Medicaid) for my son(7 yrs old) who has ASD. We'd like to order diapers
with this card. I heard the company that supplied diapers is called J&B Medical Supplies.

My questions is, is there a formal process to order diapers from them? or I just go to their website to place the order like we order stuff from Amazon?

Thanks!

How Do I Make Them Understand?

My five year old granddaughter will run and keep going if she's not watched every second when outdoors or on an outing. Her mother found out the hard way when Tina bolted from her side on a family picnic at a waterpark. Up until that moment we knew nothing about elopement and the fact that almost half of children with autism will place their lives in jeopardy by leaving a place of safety and wander into danger.

You would think the people who work with autistic children would know… read more

In Michigan they make special needs kids take all of the same classes the "normal" kids take. There is no GED just a Certificate of Completion (but you still have to take the same classes).

Irregular bowel movements

Not a nice topic perhaps but I very much need advice and some thoughts here.

Our 4 year old daughter will go days (week) without having a bowel movement.
Her eating might slow down a bit but usually she still has a good appetite.

At times it may be a control issue for her. Its her body and she can control whether or not to go.
She still wants a pull up in order to have her BM , although sometimes she has been known to sit on the toilet.
She's usually not constipated which her doctors… read more
