At first, I loved the idea of taking my baby to work, but the more I think about it, the more concerns I have. Is that best for him? Will I still be able to work with him there? What tools, policies, etc. can make having my baby at work with me a viable option? Anyone out there have experience with this? Any tips, recommendations, or ideas?
Editor: First, congratulations on Oscar's arrival and your job offer! I work part-time at home with a preschooler so have less insight on working with a baby (and in an office environment) so hopefully readers will have some good thoughts for you. For me, I much prefer working away from my son's company so I can focus on work or him instead of dividing my attention. The type of work and the working environment you'll be in, of course, make a huge difference to how viable this option is for you and your son. Readers - have you tried working out of the home with a baby? Thoughts?
