We get 6 weeks. Take it

Take the max and have no shame

Sorry, I shouldn't assume wife. Please insert spouse, partner, mother of your child, etc. as appropriate.

Take it, we all need to support each other to create the new normal. If you want to break it up tack it on when your wife goes back to work.

Take the six...I did and it was awesome.

Take all you can get! The team will figure it out.

Take as much as you can. Your wife will be so grateful to have you around. Great way to earn husband points, as we refer to them in our house.

Op. I once had a partner travel Transcon for a meeting two days after birth. He didn't get any hero points from me.

The way to change a cultural norm is for everyone to take that first step. Eventually 6 weeks will be the norm. Bravo new dad!

Family first. Man, you will live with your family FOREVER! I assure you in 5 years you will not be in contact with at least 2 of those team members

If you break it up you only get 3 weeks versus 6 if done consecutively

like

Take it all. We just went up to 16 weeks and I will be taking it all.

like

You only get one chance to spend that time with your family. Projects will always be there.

Totally take it all. Just returned from my leave (8 weeks) and wish I could take longer

like

When that day comes I plan on taking the 16 weeks they are giving us and not feeling guilty AT ALL.

like

Great, I'll take all 6... The cultural norm appears less tho. I have seen 1 week, 2 weeks, etc .. Even when offered 6! Nuts!

like

D2 - you know it. Doubt he got points from the client either.

like

You mean how many weeks after birth do you stay home? Two weeks is commonly accepted I would say. Everything beyond that is company policy / culture specific.

like

Absolutely take ever minute!

like

I took the max (12 at the time). This is a great time in your life. I wouldn't suggest letting work influence you into shortening your paternity leave. It's a benefit to you and part of your total compensation.
