    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!

    My son is 10 months old now and has gotten backed up alot, i have not started him on whole milk yet but im a first time mother so i have gotten advice from my friends and family and what they have suggested is to put karo syrup with water and give it to him in his bottle i talked to the pharmacist where i go to get his medication and they said to try the baby miralax, you can get it at walmart and its only about 10 dollars. Also i have found that when i give him sweet potatoes he seams to have a bowel movement after being backed up.
