Op said she had returned to work/was currently working so ppl v bb isn't relivant.
FTb a&b are based on household income and if anything a working mum would lose those benefits before a sahm

If it is ppl v bb then I don't actually see them as comparable in any way shape or form.

I agree with others, they aren't comparable. I just know many sahm who don't think it's fair. That their job is being a mum and that should be recognised with the same sort of payments as what working mums get.

I find that really unbelievable.

PPL was brought in so that more mums could stay home longer with their babies. Kind of suggests that being a SAHM is MORE valuable, doesn't it?

The idea behind PPL is to support women to have babies with minimal disruption to their current life situation. It's not to pay parenting as a job - it isn't a job! Without PPL many women would be losing an income they would still otherwise have if not having a baby so that would be unfair. If a woman wasn't working before having a baby then they are not losing income once the baby is born. It's to supplement income, not create an income! Your friends are thinking about it all wrong!

What do u find unbelievable?
First time around I got ppl. This time I don't qualify so don't get it.
I'm ok with that and see bb as a nice extra benefit rather then an entitlement for work I have done.
Ppl is just that. Paid leave from employment. If I work I generally earn four weeks holiday pay pa. if I don't work I don't expect the government to make an equal payment.
