Gosh, i think that's the million dollar question!

Well, i will say that one of the receptionists at my kids' pediatrician's office brings her baby to work with her. This woman keeps her baby in car seat near her desk, and the other receptionists and nurses help out with holding, feeding, etc (not bf).

The ped is exceptionally AP, though. Not sure that would fly at a more mainstream doc's office.

At WIC clinics around here, moms can bring their breastfed babies for the first 6 months and wear them. That's the only place I've heard that does that.

I was going to say, some offices allow this. My Mom worked at an answering service for towing companies. She wore and BF'd me the entire shift (6 hours) everyday! I know some offices still allow it today, you just have to really look and ask the right questions.

Try applying at locally owned, child-centered businesses--consignment shops, independent toy stores, photographers specializing in children, etc.

I wear my baby to work at our small public library. I only work 2 hour shifts so she sleeps through most of it. I think the most important thing is to find bosses who are supportive of it.

I take my kids to work with me, but my husband owns the business lol.
That said, my friend runs an organic clothing store and all the ladies who work for her have kids and the kids go to work with the mamas. I'd try some place small like that.

congratulations!

I used to work at an answering service and brought my then 5 year old son, till he was 8 and I quit due to pregnancy. While there some of the clients were towing companies, and with that experience I am now able to dispatch from my home in the evenings and over the weekends.

I don't make a lot of money, but I get to make SOMETHING while staying with the kids :
