have a question.  How is anyone supposed to enjoy this site, or even learn anything from anyone when you just get ignored???   I have posted things, responded to other peoples questions, yet when I had a question, there was only one person nice enough to respond.  What in the world is a new parent supposed to do to get advice or even get heard????????????????

This is a typical problem.  Sometimes people will respond randomly to posts, but this seem to be rare.  I think a lot of people will not offer advice unless the person requesting it is on their friends list.  I would suggest finding some groups for new moms and there is a group that is solely for advice.  Remember though that not all advice will work for you and your family, but what works for each individual.

Good luck

I honeslty use this journal as my blog.  I dont expect feedback, but if I do receive, then I give back.  I dont know how to explain, but I am random on my replies.  Sometimes the first sentence that show in the headlines attracts me.  And sometimes its the situation.

For baby questions, I was on thenest.com - that was a great site for babies.  Or babycenter.com

Good luck.

Also I noticed that all your activity on your profile is from today, so you no doubt are a brand new member. Keep in mind these groups are all messageboards and a lot of the women on here may only get the chance to get on late in the evenings after they get the kids in bed or maybe once a week or so. Just give it some time. Also go back to your posts everynow and then and bump them (reply to your own posts to get them moved back to the top of the board). And if you need answers quicker  try joining boards with a lot of members. You can search for groups that fit your needs by using keywords or just browse the whole list. The way I found most of the groups I'm in was by looking at the groups lists on profiles of people who I seemed to have things in common with.Best of luck and hope this helps.
