    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!

    I started giving my son puffs @ the end of the 5th month. At first I broke them in half but now he has no problems. How long has your daughter been on solids? I started my son on solids @ 4 months, he is 7 months now, so he does very well with chewing. Have you tried the mum mum's? They are a little easier for the baby to hold. My son is still working on his grasp so I put a few on his tray after each meal so he can work on his grasp.
