    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!

    that's totally COOL!

    I didn't know I could make my own lotion (and it contains all-natural ingredients that I can actually pronounce, LOL), or diaper cream or baby oil or bubble bath!

    There are some caveats at the bottom of that site:
    Notes:
    • Please use essential oils only on babies 6 months or older.
    • A few studies on lavender and tea tree oils have found endocrine disrupting effects on boys. The effects disappeared as soon as the exposures stopped, there were no permanent effects, and not all people respond to the oils this way. It almost seems like an allergy. This issue is the same as the soy issue. They are natural endocrine disruptors. Boys can be more susceptible to the effects of lavender and girls can be more susceptible to soy.
