Re: if you could choose when baby is born
I live in a tourist area and when I work it is seasonal. DS1 was born in Feb and I went back to work when he was three months old. Breastfeeding was not as successful as I would have liked since I could never pump at work waiting tables. W/ DS2 and 3, I made sure they were born late fall/early winter so I would have more time home w/ them. I actually haven't worked after DS3 was born, though. This last was not planned and will be born in April.
