How do you expect me to cope with only 15 mo. off work?!

Today in our local paper, there is a letter written by a woman complaining that she wants to breast feed her child for 2 years and it’s UNFAIR that the Swedish government ONLY gives her 15 months of paid parental time off work.  It should be a full 2 years, she says.

Wow.

Americans, please get this woman’s information from me to write and let her know how much time the rest of the world gets off work when they have children.
