They're fine, but you can find better prices at local nurseries

Thank you DD. I live in jersey city so I don’t have a car. With the pandemic going, I was looking for an online service to be absolutely honest. :) but I’ll definitely check if anything is around.

I second the above- I have had plants delivered and they are always hit or miss. I have the healthiest plants from local nurseries, but I understand if that isn’t an option! See if you can find an online nursery that ships located in your area, so the plants aren’t in a box too long :)

Sounds like a good option. Thanks k1 :)

I’ve gotten a few small hard-to-find succulents from there. Great experience overall but I do prefer to support my local nurseries. Most of them ship online via USPS. I’ve also tried Gabriella Plants with good results. I like the Sill’s option to ship prepotted- great convenience factor

What type of plants from gp have you ordered? Curious about this online store

You can shop on Etsy for plants but I would wait until the spring. Even if people are packing with heat packs the plants go through shock since it’s cold.

First time pregnant here, I’m 26 weeks. I hear a lot about postpartum depression and I understand it could be coming from change of hormones and exhaustion. But I keep thinking there’s no way I can go through depression knowing how excited I am to meet the baby. Can you please share what feelings you had during your postpartum journey? Do you still go through it even with a positive mindset and help from your partner or family?

Hi all. Solo parent here and thinking about the holidays. Kiddo & I feel kinda isolated, and I was thinking about hosting a holiday gathering with some families we know. Issue: we have a smallish house with a dining table that will seat 6 and a couple of barstools. House is setup such that living and dining are downstairs; second living room and all bedrooms up. Don't want to do a formal sit down bc I don't feel like we know ppl that well. Thoughts? Recs for a service that can help me "host"?

Are there other companies out there that compensate well AND offer 16 weeks paternity leave? I’ve had some companies reach out, usually through former colleagues but none offer the same paternity leave. We’re expecting. You couldn’t give me enough money to take away 4 months with my new child. BUT I am frustrated with the sell and then solve model at EY. We promise the world without a plan of action and then try to increase margin by staffing limited resources with no support.

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.
