CoM is a great place to get advice from fellow moms, however.......
There are certain controversial topics that are discussed on this forum quite frequently. ie: when to start cereal / solids, what to give for reflux, what to do about rashes,, circumcision, breasfeeding, constipation, failure to thrive, eczema, fever, etc.... you name it, we have questions about it.
The one thing that I want to remind moms of is:
No matter what kind of advice you may receive from CoM forums...it is ALWAYS best to CHECK WITH YOUR CHILD'S DOCTOR FIRST.
We have wonderful, caring moms that always mean to help as best they can, but, as wonderful as they are, they are not medical professionals.
Please consult your child's doctor before implementing any advice you have gathered from the CoM forums.
