My husband and I are going to start trying soon and are trying to get on the same page regarding childcare. I suggested daycare but my husband says he absolutely doesn’t want a “stranger” watching our child. Instead, he wants our moms to watch our child. My mom doesn’t have the best health and can’t really be relied on so that leaves his mom. I’ve said for years that I don’t want our moms to be our childcare. Is there a way to compromise here? Any idea that’s not a parent = stranger to him 😩


Today I dropped my baby at her 1st day of daycare. And both of us are a mess. 😭


Hey moms! Anyone tried to follow 12 hours of sleep by 12 weeks old? How was your experience? What age was your child?

I listened to the audio book and can't decide if I should start the training of my 3 months old. Taking cara babies methodology states that it's too early to start any sort of sleep training before 5 months. Thoughts?

Anyone else juggling having kids at home during the winter break and trying to work from home around your SO (who is also working from home). The holidays are always SO hectic at my place and I'm feeling like a failure, my mother was a perfect housewife and I'm far from it lol. Other parents struggling with this?


I enrolled my baby into day care. She will turn one by then. I'm told she should feed herself with very little help. Is this possible? I am onto baby led weaning but I don't rely on it completely.

Vaccines: 1) for the 2months appointment is it best for the baby to receive all vaccines at the same day or is it best to spread them out over the subsequent weeks, eg one vaccine per week? Rationale: so that the little body can better cope with the vaccines? 2) any tips so the baby can better deal with the vaccines? Eg while they receive the shots is there anything that can be done so they don’t scream so much? Or after so they don’t have much side effects from the vaccines?


Turns out red-lining my baby sister’s resume and cover letter is not what she meant by giving “feedback”….. 🥴


I’m a single mother with no help from the father. I currently go to school and have a full time job. I just found out my car needs a repair that’s 2300. The car is 21 years old and on its way out. I can barely make ends meet as is. What side gigs has anyone found that work for them? I’m straight up about to start working at the club.


Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?


Men, do you ever sometimes get in a weird state some days where you feel like you want to impregnate your SO (or if single any woman)? I’m not talking about feeling like you want a family, you just have this strong urge to put a baby in her. It’s really weird and started happening to me lately. Not sure if that means my clock is ticking...


What’s the parental leave policy at your firm? Maternity vs paternity? Is two weeks paternity leave pretty standard?

Is it common to have a obgyn and a doula/cnm for pregnancy. I have a high risk pregnancy and already working with a obgyn. But I don’t want a doctor to be there during l&d just to ‘catch the baby’. Started last trimester and considering to book a doula or cnm. Should I go with someone affiliated to the same clinic as the doctor or can I hire from out side too? How does this work?


Someone tell me how they manage being a single mother as an associate in Big Law without completely relying on a nanny or day care. My kids are in school from 8 to 5. Right now I’m consistently billing from 8:30-4:30 with making up a few hours here and there. I just want to make sure I’m there for them while still giving me time to workout.

Moms, did having daycare at your gym help you to go more often? Did the environment help?

Hubby thinks that we can workout at home (peloton, weight bench, online classes, jogging stroller) or in our community gym & pool. But I'm excited to join a local sports club with lots of amenities (classes, squash, tennis, swim) and 2.5 hrs daycare / day.
I'm remote so getting out of the house occasionally would be nice, plus give baby some exposure. Baby will start full time 9-4 daycare soon though.

Due to living far from family I am planning my gf’s baby shower. Will prob be coed with quite a few people flying in from out of state. Need ideas for places and activities. Thinking of going to Wimberley or somewhere near. Any tips or ideas are much appreciated!

I'm interviewing with a company for the Seattle area and moving from a lower cost of living area. Glassdoor is guessing around $120,000 which seems high to me when one of my friends in the area is making $84,000 (same field and experience)
