    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,

    Essential Baby Gear

    What baby gear do you need for your newborn? At some point, your little love will make his or her way out of your belly and you need to be prepared. We took the advice of moms and moms-to-be to tell us what will be most important to have on hand.

    This list should help you get all you need to take care of your baby during the early months. As your baby gets older, you will find other items that will make your life easier (like a jumpy seat or an exer-saucer!).

    Check out the full article for the entire list here ...then add your recommendations, wish list, and ask questions in the comments below.

    Happy shopping!
