    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 DD was born at 33 weeks and was 3lbs 7oz. She dropped down to 2lbs 2 oz at her smallest. She was in the NICU for 31 days and I tried my darndest to bf with her but she wanted no part of it. We got her on the Neosure and while she did okay, it seemed to be too rich for her system. She would constantly spit up. Even now at 11 months she only weights 19lbs. Even now if we give here more than about 6oz of formula she spits up all over us. Sounds like your little man is doing well.
