I’m coming back to work from maternity leave soon. The daycares I’m on the waitlists for won’t have an opening for 2 more months after that. What do you think is the best set up for the 2 interim months without daycare? Hire a nanny to come to the house (convenient but SO expensive), or do a flex arrangement with reduced hours? I’m leaning towards the flex arrangement and either trying to work early in the day and then watching the baby while my husbands at work. Any thoughts or experiences?
One friend announces an engagement, another announces a baby, and I'm sitting here on a Friday night baking cookies and coloring. Making thirty look shitty.
Advice needed-I’m 30 weeks pregnant and constantly getting dumped on at work (in industry now). I’m high risk (gestational diabetes & hypertension) and have been clear with my all male management team that I’m high risk. Still, they are steady trying to pull me into new projects while I’m actively leading one of the most high profile projects in the org. From a career standpoint, I appreciate it, but I cannot physically keep up the way I used to and feel like I’m risking my and my baby’s health.
Am I burnt out, lazy, or pregnant? Jk I’m always this fatigued, but I’ve officially hit the quarantine burnout wall I thought I’d been avoiding :/
Do any of you have experience getting promoted or trying to get promoted while pregnant? How’d you go about it and what was the outcome?
Hi moms. I’m looking for tips for transitioning my baby from slow flow nipple to medium flow nipple. She is 12 weeks old, a few days short of 3 month. We thought she was ready for medium flow nipples a week ago and started using them. But there were a good amount of spill (any amount of breast milk wasted makes me 😞; there were more milk in her mouth than she can swallow, and milk end up overflowing out of her mouth). And she threw up most of the milk after one night feeding.
Any recommendations for a postpartum get-back-in-shape program I can do from home (app, website, etc)? I (luckily!) don’t have any crazy pelvic floor issues, but have had some real back pain so looking for a program with good core strengthening, as well as a balanced focus that can generally help me shed the post baby weight.

I have a dear friend whose mother just passed from diabetes. She was on government assistance. Didn’t own a home. Had upwards of 60k in medical bills. Yesterday alone he received 7k in new bills
Our baby girl is now 3 mos old and has been exclusively breastfed (with the exception of the first few weeks where she got the enfamil bottles while my supply was still getting established). We now want to give her a bottle at night but she completely refused the formula bottle and puked her guts out throughout the night because of the few sips she took. What do we do now?Anyone have recommendations for alternative formulas we can try? How would you reintroduce formula to a baby like this? TIA
I recently attended an Indian (zoom) wedding wherein the bride’s mother used intelligent before beautiful and kind to describe the bride. First time ever did I hear such a thing. Can’t wait for the day when this becomes the business-as-usual. Women are more than their looks.
How are parents keeping 5-6 yr old kids entertained. My kid is watching tv for 2-3 hrs each day and not at all participating in study. Kiddo is bored talking with classmates and friends, building legos and toys. Even school opens i doubt this age group really have patience to be on zoom calls. Looking for ways to keep kid busy other than digital media.
