What do you think? Should parents be able to bring their young babies to work with them?

"Internet babies"? I don't understand. What do you mean by this?

ETA: After reading your next post, I think you mean the memory of one's baby or toddler as opposed to currently living with the day-to-day reality of a baby or toddler. Is that right?

Maybe others are thinking of higher paying jobs where there is more responsibility and not something similiar to what you could do at home.

IME, the woman I knew pumped for the entire day before she went to work (except for when she visited the baby at lunch).

I agree and I don't see why an employer couldn't take an employee seriously if they choose to breastfeed or pump
