Hi, How many of you were successful using "taking cara baby" (especially for newborn's sleep)? You can just say "me" or "not me" if you are busy. I am deciding if I should buy the course. Things are getting better on week 4, but it's not good and the hours between 6 and 10 pm are awful.

My little step sister is 9 and is very clearly and openly the less favored child between her and her brother. I feel terrible for the environment she has to grow up in. I opened an UTMA account for her and am contributing what I can to help her out. Is there anything else I can do to ensure she has the financial freedom she needs to get out of her situation as soon as she hits 18?

What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry!

People - really struggling with this - was supposed to move to bay area for husband’s tech job. I can work remotely. But with COVID I’m not sure if we should make the move. We feel the world will move to a remote/ WFH mode. We want to buy a house and settle down before our kid arrives. Should we move to a cheaper city like Phoenix so we have a big house for cheap and 2 home offices. Am I missing anything?

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.

I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?

Can someone smarter than me explain the mechanics of the child tax credit in the America Rescue Plan? If I qualify for monthly installments of the credit but fill out my W4 so my withholding is as close as possible to my tax liability, shouldn’t the credit installments effectively be offset by an increase in fed withholding so that my take home pay is the same as if I claimed the credit on an annual return? I know there is an increase in the credit, but I’m focusing on logistics.

I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?
