I'm sorry, this is off topic, but I have to jump in because I've been reading NewMommy's posts and just can't believe that a mother with an 8 week old babe has already had to go back to work! It just floors me!


I can't understand why the U.S. is so behind the times with regards to parental leave. In Canada we now get 1 year leave with govt paid support, plus many companies chip in extra money for the first 3 - 6 months. A mother is guaranteed her job back after the one year period. Most European coutries have the same or better benefits than Canada.

I just feel so sorry for all the moms who, for financial reasons, have to go back to work so soon.
