    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Let's see who all is here! I know I'm guilty of lurking for quite a while, and would like to see the boards pickup!

    Name: Kelly
    LO(s): DD, 7 months, Nola

    Milestone Update: Well, this week we had our first boo-boo. Nola was on the changing table and sat up while I was opening her diaper. (She's been doing this for a while now) She can bounce herself up and down, and something got her excited....and she face planted on the end of the table. Thankfully, she didn't fall off. But she got a little gash right by her eyebrow. She hardly cried, but I felt terrible! I know there are plenty of injuries to come, but I can't stand seeing her hurting

    I'm here. I check almost every day for new posts and sometimes even start one myself. This is my second baby, so it's different but more fun this time around...less stressing about every thing.

    Name: Michelle
    LO(s): DD#1 - Alexandra 3 1/2 years DD#2 - Katelyn 6 months

    Milestone Update: Katelyn has really been sitting up alone but still tumbles sometimes. She hardly wants to be laying on her back anymore unless it's sleeping time. She can say ma-ma when she's upset and wants me to pick her up and ba-ba when she's really hungry for a bottle.

    LO(s): DS, 7 almost 8 months, Lochlan

    Milestone Update: Well, today little man stood for the first time on his own, holding onto something. I was able to snap a quick pic before he sat back on his butt. Now that he's learned how to crawl he can zoom around the house with incredible speed. He can say da-da, ma-ma and ba-ba for his bottle. Sometimes he says Hi but that is pretty rare.

    I just saw the update post so I am late.

    Name: Heather
    LO(s): DS Carson 4 weeks today

    Milestone update: so far not much since he is pretty new. He likes tummy time. He has a case of mild thrush and yesterday he was spitting up at almost every feeding poor lil man. Should get better with the treatment though. He is 9lb now which is great weight gain. He likes tummy time for about 15 minutes or so as well. He has also been trying to pull out his binkie and hold it and tries to put it back in sometimes.

    Milestone Update: She is babbling and trying to sit up by herself. Today she held her bottle!!!!

    @kell0613: I know how you feel. Chazzy fell off the bed when she was about 3 months. She wasn't hurt, but I felt awful!
