    My DH is planning 3 weeks off (as that is how much annual leave he will have accrued by then), it is our first.

    DS1- 4 days
    DS2- 6 weeks
    DD- 4 days (but only did half days for the first week)

    We have our own business so DF only took off a week with each baby. I preferred it like that as it helped me get into a routine quicker

    2 weeks paternity leave & he wishes it was longer as the 1st week flew by with visitors etc. Next time he will add an extra week from annual leave too so he can help with DS1

    My partner can take 13 weeks paternity leave with his work but i'm not sure i want him home for that long haha but he's keen to take it. Does anyone know if he takes the 13 weeks if it will affect my paid parental leave? The way i read it was if he takes more than 1 week when peanut is born, it will affect my leave payments?

    3 weeks. The first week started on bubs due date, but she was a week late, so he only got to spend 2 weeks with her. I think it sucks that work made him choose a date for leave, before bub arrived.

    DP took 3 weeks off and its his first day back at work today. Was great having him home the whole time, I wish he didnt have to go back! I think he started to get a bit bored during the last week tho and started doing projects around the house that he's been wanting to do for a while.
    The first two weeks were just learning our new routine and how to cope with a baby.
    He booked his leave starting from my due date but baby was 3 days over due and decided to come on friday instead of the Tuesday so he just kept going to work and they allowed him to alter his holidays to suit and put them back a week. That was really good of them.
