Thank you for this Jennifer! I know someone who has on her twitter profile photo (the big one not small one) herself presenting at a conf w her infant child. I loved it.she said it was like her 3rd child or sthg so she was comfortable enough to do that

I admire the way you’ve laid it out here and that you decided to take your son with you regardless. Would love to hear back about how it went for you. I, too, have written a lot (including parts of my thesis, published articles and blogposts) with my child on my lap (awake or asleep).

I think finding ways that work for us and our kids are important and society soooo needs to back off in some ways.

You describe US Society. Strangely similar to Egyptian although we are a much more patriarchal society in general. Wonder if Europe is better?
