It seems like several of the forums are running threads along the lines of "Things you wish someone had told you before you had the baby" or "Advice for new moms". Would it be possible to consolidate these into one forum on Advice for New Moms??

It seems like the advice that everyone could use is being fragmented into different months.

I was thinking more along the lines of practical advice: freezing some dinners ahead of time, buying cloth diapers to use as spit up rags, and so on... They're things my older sister told me, but some of you don't have older sisters!

I think that is a neat idea: "Hey it worked for me!" type board-where parents share there secrets and tips with others... (something like that? Alice)

i think that would be great! on our board we did a top 5 list post way in the begining. it was for fav baby products to have. things like this would be so helpful to moms who haven't done this before. eventhough they could get the info from the board they belong to, they would only be getting a fraction of the advice they would get if it was open for everyone to know was there and add to.

That's kind of what I was getting at. I think that a lot of moms-to-be stick pretty much to their own boards, but they're missing the input from the experienced moms who aren't hanging out there. So I was thinking of a place to post generic "it got me through" advice-- or to request it.
