Interpretation Bulletin IT495R3 goes into even more technical detail

Here’s an example.  Mom has post-partum and can’t work or care for the children while dad works. Dad pays for child care and mom doesn’t earn any employment income.  Usually dad would not be able to claim the child care.  A letter from a doctor or psychologist or psychiatrist that establishes mom’s infirmity would mean that dad could claim the child care expenses.
