Boob vs Dad
In Norway we're debating if mothers should reduce breastfeeding at six month in order to let dad in on the scene. We are reluctant to share more of our one year parental leave with dad, and we use the boob as the excuse. Even if babies have food from six months, and there's no stopping us from returning to work. I agree, we should let dad take more of the responsibility!
But I don't live as I preach: I've grabbed as much as the parental leave as I can without breaking the household peace, and I plan to breastfeed as long as I can. (at least until me and Anna start having conversations about it)
What do you think? Do we need to go to "extreme" lengths to secure equality between the sexes when caring for kids?
