Just joined yesterday, though I've lurked about the site since my daughter was born. I'm a first-time mom, born and raised in Utah.
Have you joined your tribe? http://www.mothering.com/community/f/91/utah-arizona
and or gone to parenting? I was not sure how old your baby is so here is the parenting link
There is lots of useful info in those forums. I am always in need of advice for my toddler.
