A lead on my team mentioned she is pregnant and she hasn’t made the news public and just informing me as a friend. we go live in summer, she won’t be due until fall but I feel project might need back up given the crazy hours in go live, should I inform SM or PPMD in confidence and look for an additional member? How do I go about this? Don’t want to betray her trust and at the same time do not want to risk project. Anyone been on this boat before?
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
Am I burnt out, lazy, or pregnant? Jk I’m always this fatigued, but I’ve officially hit the quarantine burnout wall I thought I’d been avoiding :/

24M with a young kid. Would anyone recommend buying life insurance? Any thoughts/opinions?
Baby is almost 6mo and has a flat spot on the back of his head (right side). The pediatrician referred us to a physical therapist who suggested exercises that have him look the opposite way of his flat spot. They said PT is just as effective as a helmet if done early. But we put him in daycare during the day and I don’t know for sure if he’s getting a proper amount of “baby exercise”. Anyone ever been in a similar position? I wanted to avoid a helmet but thinking it may be best.

Our baby girl is now 3 mos old and has been exclusively breastfed (with the exception of the first few weeks where she got the enfamil bottles while my supply was still getting established). We now want to give her a bottle at night but she completely refused the formula bottle and puked her guts out throughout the night because of the few sips she took. What do we do now?Anyone have recommendations for alternative formulas we can try? How would you reintroduce formula to a baby like this? TIA

I’m trying to reckon with what I’d describe as a culture of fear surrounding partners/leadership and the unconditional respect they’re often given. I’ve seen some whack behavior from partners that just goes unchallenged. Is it mainly politics? Faith in their vision? Precedent?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.
