But economic realities limit most American women to around ten weeks off with the new baby. 

It's a critical time for the child's development, as Erica Komisar points out in her book Being There: Why Prioritizing Motherhood in the First Three Years Matters

Komisar, a psychotherapist, points out the many ways in which children develop more fully with mom's attention. 

She offers suggestions for maximizing that attention, both for stay-at-home mothers and those who need to get back to work.
