    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.

    Thanks so much, Dr. Brennan!

    These tips are great! I used love putting my daughter in all of those precious infant hats to keep the sun off of her face.

    I also never knew that, "Sunscreen is most effective when applied 30 minutes before going outside." Looks like we'll be more prepared for the beach this year, thanks to you! :)
