I will be going back to work next week and will be taking my dd with me -she'll be 6 weeks old at the time. I have a pack & play, travel swing & infant seat with vibrations to take with me, any ideas for other things I might want to have to make it easier to juggle her & work and the same time? Oh yeah, I'm taking my sling too so that I can br___tfeed her while sitting at my desk on the computer...

Sounds like you have everything. I take Ellie to work with me and to be honest I don't get anything done. But she is a baby who always has to be held and needs attention. She also hates her swing and bouncer. Your little one is young enough where they will sleep more too.

Don't forget to take a big bottle of water and some healthy snacks for yourself. I'm glad to hear that some empolyers are being this supportive.

I'm lucky to have a WONDERFUL baby. I honestly don't know how I got this lucky to tell you the truth, I was an awful baby from day one.

We have the same baby Lynn :) Emma is such a good baby. She's not high maintenance that's for sure. My boss said I could bring Emma but I don't think it would work out well for me! Are you in the office yourself? What do you do? My job is too chaotic for a little one to be around but if she were ever sick I know I could bring my pack n play and nobody would care. They'd all be busy picking her up and playing with her. Ha ha!

I actually work in a 2 person office - me & my boss. I have the front office/lobby area, he has his own office and we have a "conference" room which is actually a "clutter" room as we never have any conferences in it & use it for extra storage areas. My desk is actually fairly large with a U-shapre to it so I have enough room to keep a swing and bouncy chair under it to my side so she can be there right with me. The nice thing about b___stfeeding is that if she starts to cry I just offer her the b___b and she's happy!

Don't forget a mobile to attach to her pack and play. They are an entertaining distraction. When she turns 3-4 months, you can use an exersaucer, which provides a full day of entertainment:)
