    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.

    I could have sworn I heard my baby mumbling words that I could understand at 3 months old! I told people she was "talking". I told this to a DCFS investigator, and she opened an investigation on me based upon mental illness. DCFS' involvement in my life has caused me to get very sick mentally, be isolated. and lose out on a significant part of my daughter's life. So please tell me, was I crazy to believe she spoke at that age?

    Im gonna have to say no way on this one.

    While it's entirely possible that baby's mumbling may have sounded like a real word, its really not possible for them to actually be speaking real words with intent and comprehesion.

    Also, with all due respect, Child protective services would open up an investigation on you for simply thinking your baby is communication at 3 months old. There must have been other determining factors there when they decided to investigate you.
