We have a pretty solid policy in Portland. 12 weeks for primary, & 2 weeks for secondary caregiver. Primary gets extra week for every year they’ve been at the agency, up to 6 months total. Agency also gives $1k food credit.

1 week paid plus NYS disability. It’s atrocious. We can take out PTO which is cool, but what about those days we need for school holidays? Oh and after 2 years we can apply to work from home 1 day a week. The US really needs to do something about our working moms. My old agency was amazing... 3 months paid, 3 months unpaid, 3 month flex work from home.

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.

had a miscarriage recently and am having hard time not to think or worry about what happened. It’s been 3 weeks and my husband just yelled at me saying 1. I should be grateful for the kid I have 2.

That he is done caring for our toddler in the mornings( he wakes up pretty early in the morning due to daylight savings) and i am unable to sleep at night, end up sleeping in the morning. Does anyone go to therapy for miscarriage? Does it help?

Thoughts on "unlimited PTO"? I'm interviewing at a place that keeps bringing it up as a benefit. They say that corporate supports people taking a week to two weeks off. Maybe I'm cynical, but I've heard that at companies that offer this this, people rarely use the PTO or the PTO is rarely approved. What have your experiences been with this?
