Remember your time off is for you to recover (birth is tough - and so is life with a newborn!). I wish I had taken time for self care in addition to baby bonding.Take as much time as you need (and can afford). With my first child I started out with a 12 week plan and full time return - it turned into 16 weeks and a part time ramp up over 3 more months. With the craziness of a newborn, pumping, and transitioning back to work - I am glad I took a slower pace to transitioning back to full time work.
