Sleepless in America

My first baby didn't sleep through the night until she was 7-1/2 months old. She was premature, and nursed every 1-1/2 to 2 hours for the first several weeks of her life. Without leave I would not have survived. No daycare in the area would take a baby less than 12 weeks old. Had I been forced back to work it would have cost me most of my wages. I probably would not have been safe to make the half-hour drive to my job.
