I am new to this board. My son was born in April with a cleft lip/palate and a club foot. I am wondering if there are any other moms out there whose child was born with a cleft lip/palate. Also if their are working moms whose babies had surgery I am wondering how long you took off work for your child's surgery. My son has his next surgery in March and I have no idea how long to take off. I have told my employer two weeks but I am second guessing it thinking I need to take off more time. Any input is appreciated.
