Anyone have tips for when and how to make a break from the pacifier? Baby is 8 months and only uses it for sleeping.
I have been offered a position in-house at a $500M-$1B company, mid-sized city LCOL, 10 YOE in private practice. They offered me $120k, w opp for undefined discretionary bonus. No paid parental leave or 401(k) match & only 1 week PTO in first year (but claim they have discretion for more). Is there any way to salvage this? Salary guides suggest TC should be around $200-215k. I want to get my foot in the door but this seems crazy low.
Have a two year old and another one on the way (due in September). Getting very anxious about the transition from one kid to two and also making my partner comfortable with the thought of spending way more time with my toddler in the future than before. Any specific things / strategies that have worked for you? For example, how do you handle bedtime, playtime, early mornings, weekends? How to set up childcare responsibilities between us so that when I come out of mat leave it's not all on me?

Thinking about adding my child as an additional cardholder on Amex or other credit cards to build up their credit. I don't know if they're ready to actually have the card in their possession, but idea would be to establish early credit history.
Does it work? Is the purpose really to "build their habits" as Amex website suggests, or do they actually benefit from a longer credit history & piggyback off my good credit? First-gen professional here, so appreciate advice & resources.

Advice on changing jobs while pregnant? What was your experience like? Did you disclose before accepting an offer?
When should I give a new client a heads up that I will take time off for mat leave? I started with this client about a month ago. There’s no SOW, and it’s a few hours a week for random projects. I didn’t tell them I was pregnant at the time we started. My plan is to work until the end of the year, and then take time off. When is the best time to let them know? Asap? A month before? I don’t care about picking things up once I’m back but I’d like to be courteous.

Omg I did not know there is this bowl! I am kinda giving up on dating because I barely meet anyone who wants childfree 😞
My friend comes over with his daughter (6) who frequently runs and does cartwheels in my home. I told my friend I don’t like it and his response was that’s she’s bored and I need to be more patient with kids. Since when did asking parents to have their kids respect your space a problem?
So my jackass ex didn’t really want any kids. Excuses: Not a great childhood, postgrad intl student loans, my cancer diagnosis, career focus, no close family. I made the adjustments to accept the unexpected and now am SUPER happy things turned out the way it did. He’s now engaged to a single mom despite being adamant against children. I’ve heard this happen ALOT…anyone else?!?
Happy Friday childfree friends! See below a sneak peak of my latest favorite “new mom” announcement photos 😂

I've been dealing with anxiety / depression for over 4 yrs. My husband has also been fighting disassociation and depression for just shy of 4 yrs.
What can I do to support him when I'm having a low? I can hardly manage work, let alone the housework. It's so hard to try and be a supportive wife. I have no energy and just want to be a recluse.
We need help! We're both on SSRIs and they seem to help but not enough to keep us afloat. We just moved to a new area and have no doctors or therapists.
I just found this tax info out which only hurts unmarried individuals and benefits married. I wanted to sell my home due to equity in it at todays listing prices and apparently if a single individual, any home that sells more than 200k over your original purchase price you have to pay a huge capital gains tax… now,if your married they give you a 400k differential and anything over that you pay capital gains. Ex. Unclear of why this tax law hasn’t been updated? Wow! It’s an extremely biased
So I've been with my significant other who I love to the moon for the last 5 years & we're getting married in August. We've both always been on the same page about wanting kids one day but now, I've found myself wanting kids less and less. Anyone else been in this place? How did you approach it with your SO?
When do you have conversation about not wanting kids in the future when start dating someone new? Late twenties F dating late twenties M, not exclusive yet. I think I am afraid to bring it up to learn that they want kids in the future and I will have to end it after that. I don’t want to date just to date and waste my time. I know I need to do it but damn! I mentioned it in a passing but did not have a concentrated conversation about it. How are you all deal with this?
I don’t know these people, they are friends of a friend of a friend, but holy hell this is amazing.
Fellow bowl members, this maybe a silly question. For those of you who are single, how do you find other singles who also like to be child free?
I have been running into this challenge for almost 2 years now that I am unable to get far anywhere with my date when I present my dealbreaker i.e. not wanting kids.
I usually bring it up before even if I meet a potential date. I like to know that we have alignment on core values. It's a waste of time, otherwise.
This isn't about being childfree this time but is a bowl that I think is least likely to have anyone who's involved lurking. Looking for perspective.
I'm in healthcare, agency side. I have a couple of product names I've never had to say out loud until a recent client meeting. I practiced pronunciation before the meeting because it's different than how I hear it in my head. Continued in comments:
Hi fellow CF friends! I emailed FB and they said the link to join this bowl should be working now. I would like to test it out but the link always worked for me so I won’t notice a difference. If someone is willing to help me do so, please let me know! Would love to continue to grow this bowl ☺️
Do you feel like nowadays more men than women want kids? Considering they suffer less negative effects physically, socially, and career-wise.
Is anybody thinking about participating in this? https://instagram.com/childfreeconvention?igshid=NmZiMzY2Mjc=
At a work dinner party, someone I barely know just all the sudden started with questions like ‘you never wanted children?’ And ‘would you consider adopting?’ What happen to small talk regarding weather and fun weekend plans?
Did people not know this before they had kids???
I really hate being wished a happy Mother’s Day, people need to stop assuming that women over 25 are parents!!
This!!! I specifically started wearing my “dog mom” shirt/sweatshirt on Mother’s Day weekend just so I don’t have to be bothered. I mean it’s everywhere you go. Perfect strangers in the store, on the street, and in restaurants. Seriously, don’t try to eat anywhere that entire weekend.
Also, let’s get rid of Ma’am.
Was wished Happy Mother's Day on Friday for being a dog mom.... super weird.
I had no idea, though it was in the context of a group call where the person said something like, "I want to wish all the women on this call a Happy Mother's Day, whether you're a mom, grandmother, or dog mom."
I tell my family “no need to include me in this day - the point is to celebrate moms and I am not one!” I don’t need anyone pretending that having a dog or a nephew is the same as having a child.
I will say that I always send my aunts cards etc. Because they are a mother figure for me. If I had nieces or nephews I would be ok being included for that role.
I don’t hate it because I can spend time with my own mother, but I am not sure if the same applies for you.
Also, it’s weird they get you gifts lol
