Feeling so tired and anxious and burnt out, I need time off!! Is asking for a week off in about 6 weeks too short notice? It wouldn’t conflict with any deadlines or milestones on my project.

Not short notice at all. Do it and don’t regret it for a second.

Generally 1 week of notice for every day off you’re taking is a good rule of thumb, so you should be totally golden. Take the time and enjoy it!

I think that’s more than enough time, just coordinate with your back-up and they should be fine.

Nope, not too short. do it and take the time

If you’ve already made sure there’s no conflicts then definitely do it!

Not short notice

"A week for a day off and a month for a week off" - you're good

6 weeks seems reasonable, enjoy!

Hello Everyone - My wife and I are expecting our first. I've looked through a lot of posts here and revies online. Uppababy Vista gets pretty favorable reviews and my wife and I both liked it when we check it at a store this past weekend. A bit big for traveling, so thinking about getting the Minu as well. Anyone who has had firsthand experience with the Vista and Minu pairing, would love to hear your feedback and if you'd go with something different?
