Anyone else here have major breastfeeding challenges? Baby isn’t patching correctly and losing weight so I’m pumping and using formula to supplement. Working with lacation consultant but still
I’m turning 30 in a month. My boyfriend and I have talked about getting engaged but I’m not sure when he’ll propose (probably after the pandemic is over when we can go on trips safely). I’m realizing that if he waits until after the pandemic, it’s going to be at least a year until the actual wedding. Then I had always planned on being married for a few years before getting pregnant. I’m having major fertility anxiety. Any advice?
What would you do if you were out on a parental leave for 12 weeks? (Besides taking care of your newborn) Taking ideas!
My creative director is like an absentee father to us. He's there for kickoff, to shut down our ideas days before the pitch, and then otherwise aloof. I never know what he wants. Anyone else relate?
For all the talk abt how fucked us Millennials are, we are saving twice as much as baby #boomers & they could be on track to retire richer than their parents.

How much notice is required before taking parental leave at BCG? Is there something required per rule or is it more just best practice to give 60/90 days notice to give folks time to plan/schedule around it?
Last week I was given amazing news that I was pregnant. Today, after my repeat blood work results, I was told my HCG levels aren’t rising adequately. I am crying in the bathroom stall at work.
Any tips on finding motivation after maternity leave? I’ve never been so uninterested in my job and am instead just thinking of all the time i’m missing with my baby 😕
I’m at the end of my rope. My AMD went on maternity leave a month ago and at this point, it doesn’t seem like they’re going to get a temp replacement. I’m expected to work up and put together plans for 2022 almost all on my own while taking time to train new AMPs and MPs. My director expects me to delegate to them when they have little to no background. I know I should probably start looking elsewhere but I feel like with the Great Resignation, it’s going to be the same anywhere else.
What precautions have you taken for an infant or baby on airplanes since they can’t wear a mask?
Ladies, I know Deloitte has 16 week parental leave. What’s the policy for your company ( BCG, Bain, McKinsey, PWC, Etc)? Thanks.
Just found out my mother is dying from cancer and does not have much longer to live. I took a week of PTO to help my dad. I can’t afford to take leave and my family thinks I should continue working. Has anyone gone through the same? How did it impact you? I told my team and they’re supportive, but I’m at a loss about how this will impact me professionally.
Considering leaving my agency after just a couple months in pharma - feeling underutilized and stuck. My question: do I leave this stint off my resume entirely? List the parent agency instead of the wellness arm? Pass it off as freelance? Not trying to be dishonest I just know this experience probably isn’t relevant when going out for non-pharma jobs.
Girlfriends mother attempted suicide last Friday (didn’t go through). We are long distance and she had panic attacks all weekend before calling me today to break up with me. I had no idea. Said she doesn’t have emotional capacity to be in a relationship. Not looking for advice, just heartbroken for her and for our relationship. I loved her more than I’ve ever loved anyone in my life and she pushed me away 😞
Gonna get baby's heartbeat tattooed

Those with young kid(s) under 2: how do you do bedtime routine and get dinner on the table? I stop work at 6, bedtime is creeping towards 8 pm, and struggling to understand how families prep and cook dinner while tending to child plus bath plus bedtime routine and still have hot meal after kid goes to sleep. How do you all do it? Notes: husband cooks many nights but can work late until bedtime and then I have to do it all (kid and dinner). We aren’t big meal preppers…and do takeout 2x per week.

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. It has been 4 days since I haven't received any call for negotiation or offer letter. How long does it take to get that? Has anyone faced that much delay in getting KPMG offer letter/call for negotiation?
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
