Paid Parental Leave - You must of worked 41 weeks or 300 hours within the 13 months before the baby is born to qaulify, you cannot lapse more than 8 weeks without working 1 day. This is also taxed so therefore will go against your income for the year.
Baby Bonus - You must not earn more than $75k within 6 months after the baby is born. Untaxed.
More often than not the paid parental leave is more beneficial as that totals $10k, where as the baby bonus is only $5k, after the 1st of July if this is your second or more child then the baby bonus drops down to $3k.
Haha sorry for the long story the only reason I know all of this is because I have had to investigate to see if im entitled to any!!
When I finish work next week and adding my AL and RDO's onto the end of it I have worked 44 weeks, so I just scrape in, the baby bonus we are not entitled to as DH earns to much!
Hope this helps!!

Yes you should be fine, as long as you work 300 hours within 13 months prior - 300 hours isnt very much I think its works out to be about 3 days per month, based on 8 hours a day. The only thing you really need to worry about is the 8 week lapse.
