Re: Getting Back to Work
Like Kathy, I live in Canada and don't know how any country can treat the future of their country with so little respect but this isn't a political forum and I can only say I am glad that we don't have to worry here about how long (how short) our leave will be. I too would suggest taking atleast 2 weeks off, but really a month or 6 weeks would be preferable, especially if you plan to breastfeed. I found the first 2 weeks were hard with ds but the third week was the worst for me...my emotions kicked in big time then and I was pretty miserable and tired. Your body needs a minimum of 10 days to heal and deal I would say but you and your baby need time to bond and adjust to each other.
Out of curiousity, how do you find someone that is willing to look after a 2-3 day old baby. No one in my area would even consider taking an infant into childcare that was less than 3 months old.
