Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

At our company we have to apply for job reqs, same as external candidates. I’ve been at my company for 5 years and am thinking of applying to the manager opening on my team and also a lateral position on a brand new team with a lot of visibility. Im having trouble choosing if I had to pick one. If I apply to both I feel like if one hiring manager knew I was also interviewing for the other position there could be potential bias against me. Is this a possibility? or am I being paranoid.
