For those who cosleep, what do you do between when baby goes to sleep at 7/8 and when you do? Do you put baby down in your bed, sneak away for a few hours and hope they don’t notice, then come back?

Toddler’s school keeps having more flu cases. We have the option to keep her home because we have a full time nanny for our baby. Do we basically just keep her home for a while?

I’m 8 weeks pregnant. I have absolutely no motivation to work as I’m on a remote project. It feels like I’m working on my own and feel isolated. Any ways to make this better?

So scared to cut my newborn’s nails! Thoughts on electric nail filers? Do they actually work and are they really safer than baby nail clippers or scissors?
