    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi! I'm Michelle and I have a 5 1/2 month old baby girl named Katelyn. She is such a happy baby who has the biggest smiles! Right now our favorite thing is her interacting more with us. Last night we were singing silly songs with Alex, our 3 yr DD, and Katelyn was cracking up. She's also learning how to sit up unsupported and we think she has a tooth on the way.

    Can't wait to meet more of the other mammas out there!

    Hello, my name is Alison and Lochlan just turned 7 months. He's such a happy baby and a joy to be around but the size of a 1 year old so he's our big boy. He's sitting up on his own, crawling, now we're waiting on his teeth to come in which have yet to erupt.

    My name is Beth I have a 4 year old son named Connor and I have a 4 month old son named Evan. Evan turned 4 months old yesterday and we fed him his first baby food yesterday. He has some big smiles too, and he is a very happy baby. Although he does have GERD really bad. We are hoping the solids will help with it. He is on Similac Sensitive for Spit Up because it has Rice starch in it and it is suppose to help the GERD also. Looking forward to enjoying all of those amazing milestones with Evan that we enjoyed with Connor. They grow up too fast!!

    Welcome Claudia and Hello!

    We are so glad to have you join us! Sounds like you do have your hands full with Diego and his older sister! Maybe you can lend advice to us as our little ones get much older.

    Be sure to check in weekly on our Monday Minutes discussion and begin new discussion or chime in on others to get to know the other new mommies here.

    Blessings to your and your family,
