bumping is for questions you believe are good and deserve more answers. You do this by clicking the "bump this question" icon under each question.
You can also vote up responses when you first start. See the thumbs up/ thumbs down? see something you like? go ahead and click it up. you'll get a credit, and the person who you voted up gets three credits. Eventually you'll earn the right to vote people down.
hope this helps, and welcome to cafemom!
