    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!

    Expectant parents are terrified to discuss Sudden Infant Death Syndrome- because we don't know what causes it. What we do have are preventatives, which all new family households need to follow.

    The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently presented the: "Safe to Sleep" Campaign, highlighting the preventative approach to SIDS. In addition to stressing the 'back to sleep' position for infants, Safe to Sleep, emphasizes the following:
    -Not sleeping in an adult bed
    -No blankets in the bed
    -Do not overheat
    -No exposure to tobacco

    ***Bonus: Breast milk has been shown to reduce SIDS by 60%!
