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?
Confession...I hate reading. Always have since I was a kid. My eyes feel heavy and I get instantly bored / feel like I’m going to fall asleep no matter what time of day it is or where I am. I WANT to like to read bc I know it will improve my professional / personal life. Anyone else struggle with this and have tips or suggestions? I listen to audibles and watch the news, but at the end of the day I just need to train myself to like reading. Thanks in advance!

Anyone who has worked at Digitas for 1+ years, how is growth over there? At another large holding company I worked for, I was given a very low end media supervisor salary and after almost 2 years, I didn't even receive a cost of living raise. I asked for a raise as I was functioning as an AMD, and they refused (so I left shortly after). I've been working at independent agencies that are more generous with raises and bonuses (and fair salaries), but about to move to Digitas for a new role.

Did anyone here deliver a 10 pound baby? If yes, can you please share your childbirth experience and what you ended up going with?
Doctor told me I’m on track to deliver a 10 pound baby and I’m terrified, I passed the 3 hour glucose test but they’re going to test me again due to the size of the baby.

We were just told that the agency does not have a budget for promotions this upcoming cycle because of the COVID & industry situations, but that they can work with teams individually for “critical promotions.”
I’m currently making $69K from my mid level salary. I haven’t received any raise since last winter. From my research, a Senior VD in NYC with 5/6 years experience should make around $90K on average. I’m worried that’s too much of a jump to ask for.
How do you tell your first firm as an attorney (small firm 6 attorneys...one is leaving for maternity leave in two months) that you’re leaving to move to a larger firm in a bigger city?
Hello all! I’m in a role where I’m being paid far less than market rate for my skills (by about 40-60%, so fairly significant). Initially I took the role to build experience and to avoid a gap on my resume.
My plan was to ask for a promotion/raise after a year, and I’ve gotten advice to get another job offer first as leverage. I’ve since realized that if I went through that trouble to get another offer, I’d just take it. Do I bother asking for a promotion or raise or just start looking?
What were the best baby gifts you’ve received upon delivery? My friend and I were both TTC together. I’m still going but her baby is due this week. I’ve gotten her a hatch robe earlier in the process but she has everything and wasn’t afraid to spend. Any really thoughtful or luxurious gifts to celebrate ? (Considered a high quality personalized blanket?) what else?
A parent of one of my students told admin she thinks it's irresponsible that I won't be grading over Christmas break. I let the students know to get any work they need graded in before the break and I'll get it to it during our workdays in January. Apparently that's not fast enough for her 🙄. Is it wrong that I'm sort of pissed off by this? Should I say something?

My sister wants me to pay for my father's hospitalization and related costs
My parents planned a trip to the US and never told me. My sister helped then plan. In the US, my father fell sick and had to be hospitalized. They did have travel insurance but there were still a lot of out of pocket expenses and other expenses related to rescheduling tickets, etc.
My sister contacted me once she got the bills and told me "as their son" I should be paying for everything.
Can I get pregnant a day after my period? 🥺
Feeling burned out and helpless because of workload without any chance for promotion anytime soon. It’s hard because I struggle with anxiety and depression. cont.
Pregnant with my first. Recently moved to a new city so don’t have a ton of friends. How do I meet new mom friends to do things with during leave so I don’t go stir crazy? Apps? Social media groups?
Hi ladies, I'm in my mid 40s and I think I'm entering peri. I currently have a Mirena but I should replace it again soon, but one more will put me into my 50s(!!) and I was wondering if anyone here knows that they're in peri or menopause without having periods. Is there blood work or something to check? I definitely do not want to have another child accidentally. I've got 5 more years until my youngest is in college and don't want to start over again.

Should respect be EARNED or GIVEN? 🤔 Chime in.
I come from the European culture of education where teachers are highly respected - very much like in the Japanese society where teachers get the utmost respect, as high as if not even higher than doctors / surgeons.
Students stand up when the teacher enters the classroom, say “hello” when seen in the hallway, etc. Teachers are (or at least are expected to be) GIVEN the respect by students. Seems in the US respect has to be EARNED.

How do you deal with explaining why you want to leave your current job when personality conflict is one of the main reasons? Partner is just not a good person and does not seem to be able/want to refrain from verbally abusing people. I know conventionally people advise against mentioning it, but seems difficult and almost disingenuous to cite lack of opportunity or other reasons entirely. Any advice?
