    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!


    Yours in health,

    I ended up not finding a book but most places like hospitals and things have classes you can take and the breastfeeding ones are generally free. That is what I did. Also kellymom . com is also a good resource that was recommended to me by the lactation lady at the hospital.

    Definitely see if your OBGYN has a lacatation specialist! Both of my OB's for both of my pregnancies have had one and they have always provided me with TONS of great information and been available to ask questions.
