Weaning baby now (he is four months). I have a big freezer stash and it’s in the deep freeze so it will be good until next December. Is the better strategy to constantly give baby some breastmilk every day until I run out (like 8-10 ounces a day or something, mixed with his formula) or is it better to just give formula and save the freezer stash for if/when he gets a cold or something, and then mix it in liberally only then)?
Unless someone did what this kid did (learning to walk again) don’t post it on LinkedIn.
Anyone struggled with this? I’m 30; I like the idea of having kids but also was never my “dream”. I get along with my friends’ kids ok, though I’d 100% hire a lot of help(love my career and would like to retain some freedom—the idea of not going to be able to go away for a weekend w my girlfriends/my husband with no kids troubles me).My husband LOVES kids, he takes charge of nearly all of the house chores, so I’d have support. People say don’t do it unless 100% sure;I feel I’ll never get there?
If LinkedIn and Reddit had a child, Fishbowl would be it. Or at least that’s my first impression…Hello All!
Had a miscarriage.. it’s my 1st baby and we didn’t find out until 12 weeks (via ultrasound) that the baby passed away at 9 weeks and had to get a dnc. My body is still recovering.. Just want some hope or I guess stories of success after having a miscarriage. I do have pcos so it’s harder for me to get pregnant.. but it still happened. Anyone have any thoughts or advice? Does it get better..?
I need some advice. 2nd marriage and I make 3x what my husband makes. We have a prenup but did combine finances but are now having money issues. I have issues that he’s planning to continue to provide child support past his daughter’s high school graduation, I contribute significantly into my step children’s 529s but he wants to take loans to pay the rest (bc he didn’t save before he met me), and other similar things. I know money was historically a stressor for him and thus wanted to cont.

Considering moving back to India. This Coronavirus situation has broken me, have no family here and I miss them all so much. Feel so alone here. Any one else in same boat?
Im a RN and took on a new role working in Home Health. I chose this position because My husband & I recently moved to PA with our 2 kids (1&3), with no family available for his residency program with a hospital. If you know that life, I’m pretty much the main parent for our kids. I don’t want to work in the hospital/floor work anymore; nor do I believe the hrs are flexible enough. I need a job that’s flexible for the kids but pays >$44/hr. Maybe remote or hybrid? Please help w/ suggestions.
Any fish living in Naperville? Walked around there today and seems like an amazing place to raise a family, however I’ve heard the area can be a little stuck up / pretentious. Would love to hear a real take / if this is true

Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!
I'm a US citizen living abroad I applied almost 11 months ago for my spouse. Married for years, kid. I wait and wait. It seems this will take 2 years, maybe more. I feel trapped. On one side the US system demands I work and domicile in US, the other side says families should be prioritized to stay together. My spouse has had enough of the process. I feel trapped abroad and locked in a dysfunctional system. We're just in limbo, it's depressing
Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh

Insurance is scaring me into not wanting to leave my job for another. We're extremely spoiled at my current job with employer paid good health insurance but i hate my job and want to change career dirction. I found another job but its a contract to hire with no benefits. We'd have to go on my wife's insurance and her options aren't super great either. I was so excited to start this new career at a new company but now I'm petrified at paying for my son's pt or any other unexpected health issues.
