Seems like a Dr question. Wouldn’t take advice from a thread

If it’s OTC, probably. Do a quick google search for whatever the main active ingredient is, just to be sure, but it’s probably fine. If it’s prescription, check with your doctor. Some of the ingredients can be in a very high concentration and it’s just better to be sure.

Definitely check with your doctor. Even acne creams can be dangerous (Salicylic acid)

Salicylic acid is fine while breastfeeding. Even low-concentration OTC retinol is fine per my derm.

Depends on what it is!

Just wanted to get an initial idea before going to the derm! Thanks everyone!

Probably not if oral. Maybe if topical. But obviously ask the derm. Accutane, no way

I really want to have another baby... Bio clock is running out. I have two kids in school, one with special needs. I'm already struggling to stay ahead with work and family responsibilities. I am afraid of how my team will respond if I tell them I'm pregnant or trying. Am I crazy for wanting another? Or crazy for letting my job get in the way of growing my family.

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.

I am about to return to work after maternity leave. I have a 4 month old and a two year old. Our daycare is periodically closing due to COVID.

No one else I know is in my shoes in my group/office at EY. How have your families in similar situations dealt with this? I feel like I’ll be very unreliable as we head into the busy season.

Potty training question for 21 mo- I am reading Oh Crap potty training & trying to find time to do this over a LONG weekend probably Thanksgiving as it will give me a good lead of one month to practice with my child.

When home my LO removes pants, goes and sits on potty by herself when she thinks she wants to pee with the diaper on as that is not something she can remove easily. What approach do you think is the best here?

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

My friend told me he took a kid out on a date when he was 18 and the boy was 13. Now he wants to reach out to the kid again cuz he’s of age now. Is this not creepy af? What should I do? I’m thinking block him on everything and report him.

Hi ladies! I would love your advice! I got engaged this weekend and have been receiving a lot of questions regarding the date, venue, etc. I want to take a few weeks to enjoy the engagement glow and be present with my fiancé, but I am concerned because my future mother in law is already very involved (her daughter was married 2 years ago & she planned the entire wedding). I want her input, but I also want to honor my mom because she wants to help too. What tasks did you assign your MIL to help?

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible.

I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
