    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,

    I'm a new mom. And my baby-daddy has two sons from before me. And here's my question......
    How do I monitor the boys' contact with her? Jason(my baby-daddy) doesn't think it's a big deal. But last week His oldest, who goes to preschool AND daycare, was over all week. And he was all sorts of coughing and runny nosed. And last night I had to take Emma to the ER b/c she couldn't breath, due to all the mucus and phlem. Just wondering how other parents deal with thier other children and thier preemie. Because, as much as we love the boys, we can't chance Emma's health. Hope to get some good advice, Thanks!

    What a difficult situation! You might want to post your question on the main WebMD Parenting Community or in the Baby's First Year Community - a little more traffic on those boards!

    Be sure and talk to you daughters doctor for input about keeping her healthy -
