After 10 months of nursing and pumping, I have decided to stop. What brand of formula do you mums recommend?

I had supply issues that I could not overcome & had to switch my daughter to formula at 4 months (she’s 5 months now). We use Enfamil Enspire based on the recommendation of our pediatrician, whom I trust. I spent hours pouring over formula options & weeks stressing out about it. At the end of the day, my daughter is much happier, healthier & has no zero issues with the switch. She also put on 1.5 lbs in 2 weeks to get herself back on the growth chart! Good luck!

There was a post on here a few weeks ago talking about this. I think folks said get the European brands, but you will have to search for specifics.

Enfamil and Similac

Currently have the FRM title.
I failed CFA level 3 once.

I'm hoping to eventually do CAIA, but only after I'm done with CFA. I'm also hoping to do non-financial certifications, like Certified analytics professional (CAP), and learn about web development.

While I may have the title of manager, I am still an individual contributor. The type of work I do involves quantitative analysis/data analysis/science.

Any suggestions as to what I should start with?

I have been really good with money whilst in mat leave but bought a new bag today kinda on a whim (nothing outrageously expensive). Feel a bit guilty but is it ok to treat oneself?

Deloitte mothers, which insurance plan is good for pregnancy and child birth? Thanks!

Our toddler was recently diagnosed with autism and most likely adhd. It’s been mixed emotions - relieved to find out but also scared about his future.

Any guidance or experiences appreciated from this mom community.

We bought a 3 bedroom house two years ago. At the time, our youngest of two kids was still in a crib, so we put him in the smaller of the two rooms, which is half the size of the oldest’s bedroom. Two months ago, we thought to move them into the big room and got them each a queen bed. It is not going well-for two months we’ve had to police bedtime for an hour and inevitably move someone to the smaller room. Not sure what to do- it’s driving us crazy but one room is so small it seems really unfai

Potty training SOS! Our 2.5 year old was doing so well with potty training (at least for pee) - telling us when she needed to go, sitting on the potty when prompted before leaving the house, basically no accidents after the first ~week - and now she REFUSES to sit on the potty and will hold her pee until her naptime pull up or until she has an accident. She’ll announce she needs to go, refuse the potty, and then a few minutes later she announces she needs new underwear. Any advice??
