I had a baby on 11/17/06 and got papers from the US Dept of Labor stating I was approved for FMLA with intermittent leave due to the birth of my child. In the FMLA policy attached to this, it states leave may be taken "to provide care during the first year following the birth of a child". My child got very sick w/ a cold and the flu. I took her to the dr and was not able to take her to daycare for 2 days. My employer is now telling me that this is not covered under FMLA. They say that it is for "bonding" during the first year. They said that if I want to take a week of when my child starts crawling that I can do that, but it does not cover me when she is sick. Is this correct?
