MIL turned up to visit newborn with a cold sore which in itself was very strange to me. - I was heading out so asked SO to ensure no handling or kissing of baby. Came home and she’s carrying him around and feeding him. What would you do- I’m horrified and feel angry but maybe I’m overreacting.
Any considerations when disclosing to the firm that your wife is pregnant? Debating when to share the news...
My one month old has horrible painful gas. When I spoke to our pediatrician he recommended that I space out his breast-feeding schedule to help with the gas. It really hasn’t done much and his gas is still pretty bad to the point of him crying screaming and he can’t sleep on his back I literally have to sleep with him on my chest in order for him to sleep. any tips on how to help relieve the gas
I’m having a bit of sticker shock here as I look at my step son’s and step daughter in laws baby registry. They are asking for a stroller that is $600 an extra seat for it which is $250. It’s been a long time since I shopped for a baby. Am I that much out of touch??Is that normal to pay that much or am I being cheap?? Just wondering.
To the moms in here - I’m pregnant for the first time & the morning (all-day) sickness is killing me. What are some tips & tricks that worked for you? Any advice is appreciated!
First time expecting mom here. I have a very noob / stupid question. So I read that you're not supposed to let the baby sleep alone in his/her room when newborn. So then what is the point of the nursery?! Wouldn't it make more sense to have the crib/bassinet in the parents' bedroom, or have a bed for an adult in the nursery as well? Confused here.
How long is maternity leave at your current gig? I was just informed I can only get 8 weeks...
How long did people have baby nurses for? I had my first kid during the pandemic so we didn’t use a nurse. this time around I really want one since I think it will be very helpful for my mental health
Has anyone changed employers in the same year as taking parental leave? Planning to actively look elsewhere, starting in June. However, we are expecting our first child in December.
Advice needed please 🙏🏻 for datings apps: when should one reveal that one has a kid?? I’m 38F with a 5 year old and I get the impression men run miles from me
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
Any suggestions on handling the stress and anxiety of talking with a rude and disrespectful mom for a misbehaved child?
What are some good baby books. This is baby 2 so didn’t do baby shower and some of the things we did with our first, so would like something that is easily customizable and not too much work!
For those newborn, working parents, at what age did you send your baby/child to daycare?
Thinking about putting on lingerie to put the baby to bed tonight so husband knows it’s going down as soon as he fades to sleep… I don’t have time to get the message across AND get the D while the baby sleeps because the baby can only sleep alone for like half an hour at a time. 😂
Hi, looking for some thoughts. Our son will be 3 next September 2022 and we are enrolling him in pre-school. There is a half- day option till 12:30 and a full day option till 3pm. Is the 3pm program too long for a 3 year old or is he missing out by not being there for a full day? We also have a nanny for our younger child so don’t necessarily need him to be there all day
Men, would you rather your partner stay home to be the primary parent while you are the breadwinner or share responsibilities equally. Note there are only 2 options 😂
Hello ladies! I am 12 weeks pregnant. When is a good time to tell work about it? Any tips on how to tell? I wonder if I should tell the Partner I’m working with and my mentor right away or just wait for another month or so. Thanks!
I have a diagnosed mental health condition that I’m very hesitant about disclosing because I’m concerned about blow back. It means that there are days when I struggle to get out of bed (I still manage somehow). Office socials are a nightmare that trigger PTSD, hence I make some excuse and avoid. Today someone senior in the firm made a comment which made it obvious that none of this is going unnoticed. I feel really low and don’t know what’s the best way forward. Help!
Ever get annoyed at how happy the partners/MDs are at work everyday knowing it’s probably because they’re making $Mlns from the project? If I see one more “Happy Monday so blessed to be at this client” I’m asking for a raise

I’m planning on getting the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate cert. Is there any point to getting the AWS Cloud Practitioner cert as well or is that just paying $100 for no reason?
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.

Hi, I am hired as senior test engineer for automation testing profile in EY AND WIPRO The reason I am not selecting EY is just because I don't have any practical exposure working in automation testing and I am afraid that it's better to work in Wipro and get practical exposure and then try for big brands like EY. Also, in EY I will be asked to work in client location. Where I might get into difficult situation Anyone would like to comment on this? Is my decision of selecting wipro correct?
