First time flying with 4 month old during the Memorial Day weekend. Our flight is 6:30am and will be 3 hours. Should I be worried flying so early in the day? Also… any thoughts on checking stroller and car seat vs gate check? We want to wear baby through the airport for ease, but I’m a little worried about her stroller and car seat getting banged up by the other checked luggage.
Feeling like a horrible father today. I always make sure that I’m loving and happy and excited when I’m with my son, mainly bc my father was an emotionally unavailable narcissist. But yesterday I lost my temper trying to get his movie going on his kindle tablet in the car and ended up smashing it to pieces.
Not consulting but a meme at the very least…
Happy Father’s Day out there for all you proud papas
Planning to do road to Hana in Maui. I am confused what points to do and which ones to skip. Currently 20 weeks pregnant and don’t want to get on trails that are slippery and muddy or are dangerous.
It’s about time. Anyone else think this standard should come to the US? This is happening in the UK. A lot more inclusive for parents now. Link in comments if you can’t read the screenshot.
So Mr peanut dies and became a baby a year ago and now current day he’s 21 and “rapidly aging”? 1990s X-Men comics were less batshit
I hope it's not too late to ask. I'm FTM to be. Haven't bought any baby stuff yet (except for a couple of cute new born clothes). Any recommended Black Friday baby stuff deals please?

I am a Co-Active Training Institute and ICF certified coach who focuses on helping people transition in their careers. Topics around mental health arise in my coaching sessions consistently. From the anxiety of fear of having frank conversation/quitting a job to depression when feeling stuck in a lifestyle or job with no clarity on what to do next, I have helped coach people to adopt new perspectives that lead to healthier habits and, ultimately, change.
I’m drowning. My kid is struggling and acting out. My husband thinks he is helping but wants an award for every 30 minutes he spends parenting.
If you're a woman and child-free, do you have regrets?
Cards on the table: I do! I'm 38, with a family history of natural pregnancies up to 50. I.e.: no bio reason why I couldn't still opt to get pregnant.
But, also: my family tree is, basically, cancer, heart attack under 30, psychiatric basket case and congentital heart defect galore.
I'm a minor statistical miracle here. And, knowing my math, I won't have kids.
Still, it hurts. Happy for friends having babies. But I wish I could, too!
Anyone ever successfully negotiated maternity leave to kick in sooner than the standard 1 year of service?
Advise on looking older? I work in tech so it’s not really appropriate to be fully suited up/business professional each day and I don’t wear makeup regularly. Usually slacks, sweater and flats in the winter. I have always had a baby face but have had several people think I’m 15-17 this week, so I think it’s time to start doing things differently 😳
Possible onshore salary for Germany for 10 yoe in SAP domain? What should be comfort earning for a family of 3? We have a 2 yo kid as well. Thanks.
Please try not to judge me as I put this here. I’ve gained a lot of weight during the pandemic, close to 15 lbs and I’m unable to shed it, which is delaying me mentally to try to get pregnant. My goal weight is 125 and then get pregnant so I can reasonably lose weight again after delivering. I’m 5” 3’ and the weight really shows. Am I crazy for thinking it this way? Feels like I’m being silly and selfish 😞 but it worries me that I’ll never be able to come back in shape again.
Does your organization have a good work-life balance, especially for IDs? Or do you know any such organisation? Currently I am working for more than 12 hours a day. I am a mother of one year old, hence, want to switch to the organization, which has less work pressure.

I am 33 weeks pregnant, working from home on a project that will significantly increase in intensity for weeks 34-38 (eg working from 9-11pm will probably be the standard). I am already experiencing a lot of back pain when I sit at my desk and fatigue. I am not sure how to handle this, as I’ve committed to this project, but it’s just starting to not feel like a doable situation… any wisdom or advice?
Did anyone choose to be child free because of medical or mental health issues? I have struggled with chronic migraines and depression my entire adult life. I think bringing kids into my life where I am sometimes unable to function properly would be cruel.

How do you react when someone announces they are pregnant? Are you happy for them or are you neutral? do you ever comment negatively? I personally don't agree w the decision to have kids and therefore usually ignore social media pregnancy announcements and am neutral if I see them in person (like I don't say anything rude, I just don't say anything at all). Am I being too harsh?
Furthermore, do you still get baby gifts for people, even if you don't support the idea of them having a baby?

Is anyone else feeling deeply emotional after hearing the news of the Ukraine invasion by Russia? It's so hard to go on with work and normal life knowing the world is in such turmoil and innocent people losing their homes and loved ones. My heart feels so heavy and my anxiety has been so bad. As humans were not meant to deal with the level of stress and anxiety and information that we've been dealing with for 2 years now. Having a really hard time with everything. Does anyone else feel the same?

Anyone traveled to India in last couple of weeks?
1) did India immigration require Covid test for vaccinated individuals?
2) did airlines still ask for it (I’m taking united)
3) for a 4 year old with no vaccine assume I still need a Covid test before flying?
My mom recently got shingles (called herpes in India). It's associated with really bad nerve pain. Shingles vaccine is available & recommended in the US for people above 55. We just found out that vaccine is not available in India & doctors are unaware of it's existence. Planning to get it for my Dad when he visits next time.. so if ur parents are visiting, this might be something to check with ur doctor and get for ur parents.. If anyone is aware of it's availability in India, please lmk.. TIA
