  • It would depend on the type of company. If you deal with toxic chemical, probably not good. I would say it could be benificial, because your child is with you and doens't have to be with a sitter, or a day care. I am a stay at home mom, mainly because i don't trust taking my son to a day care center. Your child will have the benifit of having you around. I would say as long as doing your job doesn't get in the way of taking care of your child, or vice versea, and its a safe enviroment, that it should be good. If i could, find a job i could take my son too, i would. On occasion i take him to visit his grandma at work and her co-worker go nuts over him. I'd say your child would be getting alot of people wanting to see him/her so he/she would be getting alot of attention from others, so i'd make sure not to have them around your lil one if there sick.

  • no, at least probably? an immigrant family owns the local chinese place in town and the woman who works the counter has her 3 yr old girl there at all times, but family business, the girl can already count money and has learned english as good as some of the adults there... i would rather not do it but i would have loved to never send my child to daycare too.

  • As long as the enviroment is safe for the child, I see no reason why. At four months it's easy to take them. Use a play pen and some toys. But hwo often with he/she get personal attention? If your running around all day, he/she might get no affection. But if you can balance the two well, then go for it! I'd love to be able to do something like that.
