    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!

    Storing breastmilk

    I was searching the other day if i could reuse milk storage bags but I ran across a great suggestion and wanted to share it with you all so you can save money. Instead of constantly buying and throwing out milk storage bags you can pour your breast milk into an ice tray, freeze it and then plop them out into a zip lock bag

    this is also useful if you make your own baby food. I made all of DS1's baby food and froze it in ice trays, then put them in ziploc bags once they were solid.
