    DH took 2 weeks unpaid (family business) and received dad and partner pay from Centrelink - 2 weeks minimum wage.

    We didn't take it when ds was born last year. As much as an extra 2wks off would have been nice (I had a cs & he had to go back after 2wks), the minimum wage would have covered only the mortgage and a very slim shopping trolley. I'm a sahm even before ds's birth so we just make ends meet on his full wage.
