Spanish Men Receive Breastfeeding Leave

Did you know that in Spain, fathers receive breastfeeding leave from their jobs?  According to a CNN report and highlighted in the Jan/Feb issue of Mothering Magazine, for the first nine months after a child is born, both the mother and father are allowed to leave up to two times for a total of 60 minutes or to shorten the work day by 30 minutes.  Compare that to American laws that only now allow a woman to pump at work on her break in a place other than the bathroom.  

Who's moving with me?
