In China, men can get paid paternity leave from 3 to 30 days according to different places. I think it's fair to let the father stay home and help as well. Those first couple of weeks are pretty exhausting for both parents, and even more stressful if the father has to work. I think the mother needs a lot of rest, and she can't rest if she has to be alone with the baby by herself all day.
