    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.

    maybe a humidifier to keep his throat moist? We used one with DS for a while and it seemed to help.

    Is he super vocal? Right aound 4 months is when DS started getting really into growling and screatching, and he often sounded hoarse. But either way, if it upsets you, just try to keep it from being to dry. Humidifier, steamy bathroom, fluids more often, etc. Good luck, I hope it's nothing!!

    Our pedi said Tylenol to help with the pain of a sore throat. Just took her in for it yesterday. Should be better in 3 days.
