    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Get the most out of your next well-baby exam - make a list
    Dan Brennan, MD posted:
    Your baby's well check can be both exciting and overwhelming. With so many questions to ask and so little sleep the night before, new parents often forget to ask about what is really on their minds.

    In my practice, I encourage my parents to keep a running list of questions. At the beginning of each visit, we sit down and go through the list to make the best use of our time together.

    I find these encounters to be more organized and more satisfying for my parents and for me.
