Day Care's New Frontier: Baby At Your Desk

More than 80 companies across the nation allow babies in the workplace, according to Parenting in the Workplace Institute in Framingham, Mass., which says that number is likely to be low. It's an extreme — and controversial — example of how employers are seeking more ways to help workers strike a balance between work and the rest of their lives.

Remember our BBA post about "Paid Maternity Leave" and how the U.S. is behind the rest of the industrialized world? Maybe if the United States had a better maternity leave policy, new parents wouldn't have to bring their babies to work with them.
