Stop paused activities being finished when switching to another activity

Currently, if you're on a timer, and you pause it and then switch to another activity, the paused timer is automatically finished and reset.

We added this feature to make it quick to finish activities - we assumed that if you'd paused a timer and you moved away from it to another activity you were done with that timer. However, we're hearing from some users that they often pause a feed to go and change a diaper/nappy and then want to return to the feed and resume. But because the timer has been automatically finished, it can't be resumed.

So, should we remove automatic finishing of paused timers when you move off to another activity?

    There is a related issue, where swapping to a different baby on the same activity also stops the paused activity. For instance, when tandem feeding two babies:

    1. Start baby A feeding.
    2. Swap to baby B
    3. Start baby b feeding.
    4. Pause baby b because they have temporarily come off.
    5. Swap to baby A.
    6. Stop timer for baby A.
    7. Swap back to baby b.
    8. Attempt to resume baby B's timer, but it was already finished and logged.

    So yes, it would make more sense to me if swapping didn't stop a timer. I could see an argument for stopping the first timed activity when a second TIMED activity has its timer started, but it sounds like currently even switching to it stops the first activity.

    This happens to me all the time, when little one needs a diaper change in the middle of a feeding session. Not a big deal but it would be nice to be able to continue the breastfeeding session after a diaper change.
