Some kids build forts with them, some stick them on their foreheads as shields, and others blast them toward the moon like rockets. No, we're not talking about toys of any sort - we're talking tampons, pads and other feminine products.

Watch as Doctors Jim Sears, Lisa Masterson, and Travis Stork tackle the issue, offering moms advice while keeping it light.
