10. Your child has a half-day at school or daycare.
Similarly, if your child’s school or daycare schedule doesn’t mesh with your work schedule, you might need to bring a plus one to the office. And if the school is convenient to your office so you can bring your child for only the afternoon then it’s a great way to try out the baby-at-work formula and see if it’s a match.

11. Bringing children to work is okay ifit’s a teacher development day.
Teachers need baby-free days too. Unfortunately for parents, it’s not always at a convenient time for your work routine. Teacher development days are an essential part of ensuring your kids get the best care and education possible. But it also means you might need to bring your baby to work with you unless you have an appropriate plan B (read: calling all grandparents for duty).
