Don’t give up paternity leave. That’s honestly the best perk of Deloitte, their parental leave policy is one of the best.

It’s 16 weeks

Quick note- FMLA will still cover you if you take the job and need more time. You won’t be paid, but you can take the time.

Figure out a way to take advantage of the paternity benefits. Those go a long way

Your new firm has no paternity leave?

Very limited comparatively. Deloitte is 16 weeks, new firm is really a small business defense contractor (kind of an oxymoron lol) and provides I think a week or something like that

Paternity leave should be for 2 weeks, the rest of the time you are gone you’re just killing your career.

MD1, also bear in mind you can take the leave up to one full year from your child’s birth. So the point you’re making about “they won’t even know you’re there,” assumes you’re taking the leave instantly. I’m on paternity leave right now (6 weeks) and my daughter is 6 months old and fully aware of my presence. It’s amazing

Hey mommas - My baby is 14 weeks old and I haven't gotten my period back yet. I'm worried I'm pregnant again. When did you get your period back? For context, I'm breastfeeding but not exclusively (I am pumping and nursing as much as I can though). I've been on the pill since 6 weeks and my husband used condoms for the first few weeks once we started again. Surprisingly, I can't find anything online that's helpful. Any sense of a timeframe would be tremendously anxiety-reducing!
