Hi mamas. I’m pregnant and have not been drinking enough water the last couple of days. How do you get yourself to drink more water?
We are visiting my in laws for Christmas. My husband and I got our covid test but then my husband wanted our toddler to also get a covid test. I refused to let someone take a giant swab and inserting this down my toddlers throat. If my kid has Covid -I’m sure we would have it too. This was a huge scene when I refused.
In the verge of giving up breast feeding due to poor latch , painful nipples and stress for both me and baby. LC, pediatrician and OB dont seem to share the same recommendations. Before I move on to formula - any exclusively pumping or pumped moms here ? Pros/cons ? Should I try that before giving up. Baby is 2 weeks old.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
Dear men, plz stop doing the thing where you stop a story/joke bc someone was about to say something offensive and you just noticed me is in the room. Thank you, the woman you made feel like a child.
Expecting twin mom here! Any recommendations for a baby monitor with two cameras, a decent sized screen for the monitor, AND has a compatible app? I’m not having any luck finding one that has all of this.
Bcg mums who are using Aetna, have you run into the same situation where the 10 month blood lead and Hgb check for your baby claim are denied by Aetna or only partially reimbursed? I have run into a lot of weird problem with Aetna since pregnancy... wondering if they are changing policies recently. All these should be required checks, no?
I just lateraled into BigLaw as a senior associate in a small market office. However, shortly thereafter became the caretaker for my father. If I don’t make my hours am I off partnership track? How does that work?
What childcare combo worked for you with a toddler (~2.5 year old) and baby (<6 mo)? Planning for when the new baby comes and I’ll have to go back to work. Daycare for the older one, nanny for the younger? Daycare for both? Considering cost but mostly peace of mind 💆🏻♀️
Is it crazy to pay $60-70k initiation fee to join a country club? Absolutely love to golf and the family would use all of the other amenities. How insane is this?
Hello, parents. Anyone here send their little ones to KinderCare? And what’s your experience? I live in Burke and am interested in sending my baby there part time when she turns 1.
Am I making the wrong decision not flying home to be with my parents? I’m an only child and they’re both 50+. Should I be there to support them in case they get sick or is staying put the right choice
Should synthetic abortion be a thing? I.e. it is made legal for a man to declare before a judge that he wants no part in a child’s life prior to the child being born. He then has no requirement to pay child support but will also never have the right to see the child.
Essentially, it’s abortion from the male side. If both man and woman are required to create a pregnancy, but only the woman gets a say after that if the child will be born, is that fair to the man?
I am pregnant, have wedding date set, but don’t love my fiancé. I keep thinking I made a mistake and feel trapped. I don’t want this to impact the baby though and I am having the baby no matter what
Not pregnant but planning to have a baby this year.
My company does not have Maternity Leave or Short Term Disability insurance offered.
1. Can I buy Short Term Disability insurance from outside? Which one? How much does it cost? How long before being pregnant should you be enrolled into it?
2. If I change jobs before planning, how long will I have to work in the new company approximately to be able to use their Maternity Leave and Short Term Disability insurance?
Very specific ask- anyone here lose a parent while single/eventually end up in a fulfilling relationship?
The one year anniversary of my dad's death is creeping up and I keep feeling like no one will ever be able and willing to hold space for my grief. I just want to believe that's not true, maybe by hearing evidence that it's possible.
Will tech consulting continue to be 100% remote after everyone gets vaccinated? I think I’ll need to find an industry position if I have to travel again. Being away from my baby for one night makes me very sad.
For those with parenting experience or interest: If you’re starting to try for a baby, how long does that lock you into your current job for (based on when it’s realistic to think you’d have time to interview/bandwidth to start new job on the right foot)? Realistically I imagine 9 months + 3-6 months + another few months? More?
Is it taboo to ask about salary or maternity leave before an offer? If not, how soon is it acceptable?

And insight on stress test nurse position at umass in Marlborough? Currently work on cardiac surgical stepdown and thinking about making a change.
This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer?
Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
