    I also use CC via the New posts option unless I'm searching for something specific.

    I think it makes sense to put all of parenting together. There just isn't the volume and traffic there once was and our kids are just going to keep getting older. I don't think there's much of a difference between infant/toddler/preschooler when there aren't that many current parenting threads going on anyway. I would vote put it all together, though in the poll I picked the 2 forums.

    When I come on, I check subscribed threads and then will check new post. If I'm searching for something I use an advanced search option and search by thread titles.

    I almost think I'd prefer a single general parenting forum even though I voted for the first option with 2. Sometimes I have questions or just want advice on topics that don't really fit in to a particular age range. Things like "what can I expect when ___"? or " is _____ normal?"

    I do think it's a great idea to restructure to better fit the members' needs.

Perhaps there could be group threads based on age to serve the purpose for chatting with those that have similar aged kids.
    This.

    All together!
    Instead of having "answers" on a math test, they should just call them "impressions," and if you got a different "impression," so what, can't we all be brothers?
