My teething 6 month old bites me when I breastfeed. He’s bitten me before over the past few weeks but his lower tooth just broke the gums and it’s razor sharp. Today I got upset and tapped him on the shoulder while saying no when he bit me three times in a row. I understand that his gums are itchy but I may have to fully bottle feed going forward. He also likes to bite/chew on his bottle nipple despite me trying to stop him. How did you mamas deal with biting and control your negative emotions?
Contract funding is expiring but I also have a new job lined up to start in June. Partner and HR are aware. We're essentially mutually parting ways.
I thought that I'd be resigning, but they offered today to terminate me for the sake of unemployment benefits.
They said I'd always get a glowing review and be welcomed back (leaving/not rolling onto a new project b/c one-off work-life stuff not aligning with project needs currently: great exp otherwise).
Pros and cons of resign vs terminate?

I work in-house on a media team for a B2B organization and I’m the only person on my team who deeply understands media. Two new hires who I had zero say around hiring have both asked me basic media questions (how programmatic works, media mix and how we work with vendors). My boss has ZERO media experience and is more of a bottle neck than anything else. I’m venting here but I’m wondering if other in-house media folks have experienced this and how do you navigate it?

I’m dying right now. Well not literally, but I feel like I am inside. We just had new profit margins and success metrics set at work. Our jobs are not supposed to be 70% profitable instead of 50%. I’m just angry and I’m really trying not to be. As a female and a mom already it’s a huge fight to claim that space in the male world. To have more pressure put on you for money by the male men that run our company just is making my blood boil. Talk me off a ledge?
