In Spain, it’s typical to get four months off of work after delivering a baby. If a mama doesn’t take additional time off, she is granted something called ‘la hora de lactancia,’ which means everyday she gets an hour to go home and breastfeed her baby. It doesn’t just have to be mom, either. Dad can also take his ‘feeding hour,’ which is separate from a lunch break. We’re a bit jealous. Not only is time off to recover and bond as a family guaranteed, but time off to be comfortably breastfeeding at home and still bonding sounds like heaven. Even mamas lucky enough to be granted six weeks of maternity leave here in the States know that a month and a half is no where near long enough.
