What did you all do with your newborns all day during leave? (Besides feed, change diapers, take walks, snuggle). Also, any tips or tricks for getting your newborn to sleep during day without being held?

How easy is it to change projects at Deloitte? I recently joined a project and it’s extremely chaotic. I talked to the project manager about how things were going and he said that there’s nothing he can do about it. He’s joined the project a couple of months ago and has inherited how the things are right now. I’ve been working 60+ hours a week and not sure I can sustain that on the long run. I’ve only been in Deloitte for a month so far.

Hello! We will be flying for the first time with our son (1yr old) and we’re debating if we should buy a travel stroller. Has anyone gone through security with a large stroller? Do you have to folder it and put it through the scanner? We currently have a Thule jogging stroller (so on the larger size, but tbh not much longer than the vista). I know we will have to gate check it. All tips/suggestions appreciated! Thanks!

I’m at week 5 post delivery and don’t feel like I have the energy to go out at all..more because infant care is exhausting and if I had time for brunch, I rather catch up on sleep
Skiing will depend probably on how you deliver, and you might want to ask your doctor. Mine said 6 weeks after delivery to resume active things like working out so probably similar for skiing. In terms of coffee or brunch, I went out a week or so after I had my kids each time - I felt fine to leave the house and was able to drive as long as not taking pain meds or anything. I didn’t always take the baby with bit of I did, just kept them covered up.
Was coming here to say something almost the same! But I was more at the 2 week point before I was ready for brunch and stuff.
Going out can be pretty quick if you deliver naturally and no complications. Sports they say 6 weeks as indication but thats not for high impact, you first need to built strength, pls be careful.
I think what helps is to not have any set expectations. Listen to your body, it has grown a baby that has just come out of you. The impact is pretty big. Every body is different but I have seen/heard a lot of women who did too much too early with lasting issues (pelvic area, abdominal, injuries etc) and I have never heard that taking too much time to build strength was an issue. Enjoy this special time!!
For sport my doctor recommended to wait 6 weeks then go to a physiotherapist for my perineum then only to start sport again (so about 8-9 weeks). As for friends the first 2 weeks I couldn’t walk or sit so it highly depend on how your delivery goes... I think it also depend on whether you breastfeed or not as it might not be easy to take the kid everywhere in the winter.
I made it out around week 4 for lunch. But it was with another person with a little baby so we were both understanding if someone was late (it’s nearly impossible to be on time) or needed to leave early.
I met with friends during week 2. I truly love your optimism!!
I went out for meals with friends after a couple weeks. Will be dependent on how baby is (if you are nursing/ how challenging it is for you, how baby is sleeping). I tried skiing last winter about 2 months after having my second... it was way too soon. Staying on bunny hill for a couple hours was fine, but core strength was nonexistent and I shouldn’t have gone up the mountain 😬
Honestly, I'd probably write off skiing, just to avoid injury. You could start working on your strength again at 6 weeks, but unless you get checked out by a PT for diastasis recti, I'd be hesitant to ski.
Last year I went skiing 3 months postpartum. It was fine but I stuck with greens bc as poster mentioned above my core was not there yet. I also had the doc in Vail tell me that they see a lot of women with injuries within a year postpartum due to relaxin hormones and body just now being ready for skiing. I think for feb baby you might want to sit this season out.
Also I went out super early with my last baby. I was comfortable, she did great at outings but she did get RSV at 4 weeks. So I’d just be careful bc looking back on it the outings were prob not worth it.
I don’t mean to laugh, but...skiing? 😂😂 I got cleared and could do light workouts at 6 weeks but I would not consider skiing a light workout (for me, at least). Will be considerably longer if you have a tough delivery. I could meet people for a cup of coffee at Starbucks like 3/4 weeks pp. but I was timing that around naps and feeds. If you’re doing formula, timing around feeds might not be as necessary.
I came on here to add one more thing...
For your first outing, keep it close to home. I felt fairly okay within two/three weeks of delivery (no complications, small tear that healed well) but my first trip out was just to a close store for sanity and I passed a leftover piece of placenta while browsing the aisles... Maybe because it was the most I'd walked in a while but just be aware you shouldn't be too ambitious at first in case you need to make an emergency exit.
ng the entire season.
I delivered two weeks ago and have NO desire to take baby out to brunch (I would love it if someone brought me brunch ☺️). My SIL on the other hand went to a theme park with baby at two weeks. It will just depend on how you feel. For sports you need to wait to be cleared by your OB/Midwife.
I had a c section (emergency). It’s been four weeks and I still have trouble walking at my normal pace. I feel like I am a physical therapy patient because I am moving so slowly. There is no pain and I am not on pain meds at this point. But for some reason, I can’t get my body to do any of the normal stuff yet.
