Is It Okay To Bring Your Baby To Work?

Providence, Rhode Island Mayor, Jorge Elorza is sparking debate over whether it’s appropriate to bring your baby to work. Elorza has taken his one year old son to ribbon cuttings, held his child on his lap while testifying at the Statehouse, and even put a bassinet and toy box in his office at City hall.

To some, it’s an example of how to juggle jobs and parenting. But critics say he is using his kid as a prop and that a working mother wouldn’t get as much praise for doing the same.
