Really in two minds about having kids. Never felt maternal in my life and my freedom and own time are important to me. At the same time, I’m worried I would regret the choice to skip motherhood - that I’m overthinking and maternal instincts would kick in naturally. Has anyone been here before? How did you make the choice (if you had the privilege of choice of course).
Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out. Now I’m questioning if we’re being unreasonable… how have you guys been handling unvaccinated people meeting your newborns??
Any gift ideas for a 10 year old girl? I’m lost. She’s a tomboy and loves karate if that helps spur any ideas? I have a baby and just have no clue what that age group is into!
7 weeks pregnant. Is it normal to have terrible nausea one day and almost nothing the next?
I am pregnant and prettyyyy scared of labor. I watched the “One born every minute” show and that helped! Are there any other resources you guys can suggest?? What helped you?? IMO knowledge is power and I think the more I learn, the less scared I will be.
My parents are coming to visit for the first time since baby was born. We also have a toddler at home. Baby is 1 month old. They’ve each had the first vaccine a few days ago, so not fully vaccinated. They go to work which involves lots of strangers. Them to get tested before coming he said they will be with us for a full week. They are not, because face say that Hass should be reserved for those with symptoms. And the free tests are only for those with symptoms. This is so stressful and I feel so caught between my parents and my husband.￼
For those in relationships (not married), so you spend Mother’s Day with your SO’s mom? Does your SO spend the day with you and your mom? Is your mom inclusive?
Ladies my hair is thinning/balding. Any advice on what to use? I can’t use rogaine as I am trying to start a family. Any suggestions would helpful!
Is sleep and breastfeeding mutually exclusive? Are there any moms who successfully breast feed for more than 6 months while baby slept through the night from the beginning? Both are impotent to me but if only one can be achieved I want to reset my expectations.
What do mom’s wear for their kid’s birthday party? We’re throwing a birthday party for our 2 year old who spent her first birthday in Covid lockdown. I’m also looking to color coordinate with her. I narrowed down on red as our color but am unable to decide on what to wear. Is a sundress too casual?
Parent died with accounts at Fidelity Investments. FYI Fidelity made one of the hardest periods of my life worse—“lost” documents, inconsistent policies, four days to respond to an email, non-communication between teams, outright lies. I don’t know how an organizational process can be so mismanaged. They have literal interns (mis)handling the entire transfer process.
NM WMA with $1M+GDC but not enough ins. sales according to 'Mother Mutual'. They'll cut my grid by 5%, increase program fees for us AND advisory fees for clients. Any former NM reps go indy out there?
Estate tax question. Elderly mother is on her way out, should we put me and my sisters name on the house deed? Does this make sense from an estate tax perspective?
https://parenting.nytimes.com/feeding/european-baby-formula?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur Interesting. So many people (who read about t on the Internet) told us we should try European formulas because EU is stricter about ingredients.
Gearing up for first baby in May... bottle / formula recs? Planning to breastfeed but preparing for all scenarios. Want it to be as easy as possible 🙂. Have a Spectra pump if that makes a difference.
Anyone have recommendations for pet adoption in the city/close by? Looking to adopt a mini golden doodle
How are people feeling about sending their kids to daycare? I started my two year old and he loves being back but everyday I question it and don’t know if I should send my younger kid.
