    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.

    My 10 week old granddaughter has been making strange noises, sometimes when drinking, sometimes after. My daughter mentioned this to her Pediatrician at a 2 month old well baby check up. He concurred & made a comment that is "would get worse before it gets better." Cannot find any literature on this subject.

    My 5 week old son has the same thing. It's called Laryngomalacia. My pediatrician says it usually corrects itself by 18 months and it's not serious. She recommended we see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) Doctor, but I think it was more to verify that he has laryngomalacia and not something serious.
