Here's a secret nobody tells you about having a baby: There's a lot of downtime. During the early days, weeks or even months of your maternity leave, you'll be confined to your bed or couch -- unable to move while you're baby sleeps upwards of 18 hours a day or while you nurse him every two hours for 30-40 minutes at a time. A lot of time is spent staring at your baby. Trust me, I've been there -- twice. It's nice to break up the monotony of those long, lonely days with some great TV shows.
