TMI question, but i stopped nursing my second kid 2 years ago and I’m still producing a trickle of milk. Does this ever go away? I even had undersupply, so it’s not like I have bionic boobs!
On maternity leave but am realizing I need to move home to be closer with family. What happens if I quit Deloitte despite owing 30 days upon return? What is the penalty?
Anyone successfully take their mat leave in two parts? I get 16 weeks and considering doing 10/6 or 12/4 a few months apart to be available for busy season and get to spend time with baby when he’s more active. Primary fears are not being ready or being able to take the rest of leave after returning.
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
I know this probably not the best bowl but I’m curious to hear about potential gift ideas for my wife’s upcoming birthday? She’s currently 7 months pregnant and since we’re all still WFH it is what’s making this more challenging given the usual choices of excursions / shoes / clothes etc not really good options.
Any daycare tips and tricks? My baby will be 5 months when starting daycare / me going back to work
Why the hell would a non-pregnant person buy a crib? :/ http://www.adweek.com/creativity/ikea-wants-you-to-pee-on-this-ad-if-youre-pregnant-it-will-give-you-a-discount-on-a-crib/
How safe is Houston downtown for a female staying alone with a young kid for a few months? Being very close to the office and daycare, and availability of public transport (doesn't drive) are reason for preffering downtown. However, have been reading about the recent crime surge there. If someone is generally back home by 8 PM or earlier, and will probably take Uber locally, is it still risky. Also welcome any good apartment suggestions. Thanks
Moms - Suggestions on where do you buy flowy or loose tops to wear post partum. Have a toddler so out and about most of the time but hate when someone enquires how many months pregnant I am .
My husband wants to name our son after his brother who he loves a lot .i am so pissed that he yelled at me when I am 6 months pregnant and unable to do anything , will be the one going through labor just to have my son my BILs name as first name , my husbands name as middle name and last name of his family. FYI- me and BIL live in different countries and I have spoken to him handful of times over phone and that’s it . He doesn’t want to discuss any other names anymore.
To all the moms on here…given your experience as a mother, what would you say is the one product or service that would’ve made your journey to motherhood easier? What’s missing?? Whether it was a plus for your kid or you directly. Anything goes. Thanks!
Sooo I have forgotten how to express love! After having a baby a couple years ago, all I have been doing is chores. My way of expressing love to my husband is cooking, cleaning, taking care of the toddler. We split tasks equally so really there's nothing special about what I do. How do I express love again? What can I do to make him feel special and loved? PS: He did tell me once that he doesn't feel loved by me anymore. And I want to fix this. Help! Cont'd...
That's Quarantine Baby !
Any tips for working w/ your father in this biz? 😬 see the huge opportunity to step into something that’s already built vs struggling in your first few years but I do worry about the father-son side
I washed and folded the baby’s laundry, washed the bottles, took out garbage and konmari’ed half of my closet... all while hubby napped after dinner. Now I’m so annoyed I married a lazy man child 😪😤
I feel very conflicted about whether to jump into an EM consulting role from industry. My husband is older, has switched jobs to a role that pays significantly less to his previous one pre-lay offs. We have 1 baby and I think I want a second. We really need this jump in salary to make this work. Irrationally I’m afraid that by not seeing my daughter Mon-Thurs for a few years it will damage our relationship and we won’t be close. Can people give me some real perspective?

I’m 6 weeks pregnant and have had a low grade fever (99-101) for the past 6 days with no other symptoms other than occasional chills. I have been on an antibiotic for 5 days assuming it was an asymptotic UTI but there has been no change. My GP and OB don’t know what is causing it. Has anyone else experienced a low grade fever while pregnant?

Feeling like my firm has a very outdated parental leave policy (and none of the women partners have children)! What is the parental leave policy at your firm? Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
