    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.

    'Tummy Time’ May Not Be Needed
    avatar
    Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
    According to a recent article in Parents Magazine, a new study, published in May in the journal Early Human Development, suggests that tummy time may be irrelevant. This practice was recommended for babies to enhance their motor development, as infants are now being put 'back to sleep' to prevent SIDS.

    Studies are now finding that the "Back to Sleep" Campaign is a necessary safety practice and is NOT adversely affecting motor development.

    The take-away for parents is that some supervised time on their tummies is fine, although not required.

    Of course check with your pediatricians for their individual thoughts and ENJOY your babies!
