    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,

    My daugther will be 6mths in 2 days. We have been breastfeeding only until 2 weeks ago, started Rice cereal... she loves it. Now I'm just not sure how much and how often she should be eating cereal vs. breastmilk???? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Please call your pediatricians office and discuss this with him/her. The doc knows your babies health history and will know best. Don't forget about the parenting community I have posted up at the top of this community, first post. You can ask your questions there as well, but talk to your pediatrician as well.
