Did you keep your older child home from daycare when your second one was a newborn? I was thinking to at least keep my daughter home for the first two weeks so she can help bond with the baby , but my husband is worried that’s too much time away from daycare for her..that she’s already going to be confused and flooded with emotions that she should have her routine yet. I’m also a little worried about covid and any illness getting into our house with him being born in January.
Has anyone heard of the Natalist? I found their Parent Plans book but the only reviews are directly on their site. Alternatively, are there any recommendations for books my husband and I can read to begin preparing to have a child?

At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis

Anyone else experience more challenges with setting boundaries for WLB when your lead is also a mother? I’ve had no issues with setting boundaries with past partners /leads (all males /dads) and have them respect it. It feels harder to ask since she understands the stress too.
Fellow people pleasing 🐠, please share any/all advice you have on how to set up healthy boundaries and say no to people.
