Can I take a few days of shared parental leave, rather than in weeks?

No. As a working father, you can share up to 4 weeks of your spouse’s leave.

However, you can choose to take the leave in a continuous block, or spread out over a 12 month period.

You may also be eligible for another 2 weeks of paternity leave.
