Yes i acknowledge the points you've made Miss S however i still disagree.
It's that school of thought that i'm failing to understand. Just because women breast-feed etc. why are men only allowed such a small amount of time?
I'm not saying they should have the same or more than the mother but surely they deserve more than a couple of weeks? I've seen a family who were quite largely affected by this difference, which is why i brought the subject up in the first place?
Some families need time to adjust to having a baby in the house e.g. waking up routinely at nights for the feed. Yes only the mother has breasts but the father has ears too which are affected by the crying and so these father's might have to drag themselves into work every day while the mother may relax or recover a bit because she's on maternity leave and he isn't. I'm not saying thats true in all cases but it is in quite a lot which I don't necessarily find fair.
