did you get flack from other moms who took the full 12 weeks or more?
The new Yahoo CEO's plan to take a short leave has the fellow pumping moms at my work essentially accusing her of taking the women's movement back a few steps and I seem to be the only one who thinks we need to lay off. That makes me wonder, how common is this? Were you given a hard time by other working moms for taking less than 12 weeks?
I took 13 weeks but by week 7-8, I felt like I could have gone back and started to get kinda bored & lonely, so next time around, I might not take so much unpaid leave. I know everyone's different and some women need more time, some need less - but holy cow, the flack you can get for not fully utilizing FMLA is pretty harsh!
