It's possible if the baby is cooperative - time the meetings for nap times, allow a break in between, have them outside on a walk, for example. Once she's a little older (4-6 months) it's easier too - give her a piece of tissue paper and she'll rip it up for hours. Or just feed her through them (I never did that with student meetings but faculty meetings were mostly done with baby stuck to chest for at least half of it).

My colleague with the office next to mine is on parental leave but brings her baby to the office most days to work. She says it's a way for her to escape her 3 year old, who really makes work impossible!

A former student of mine (from Hungary) wrote an article about attending conferences with her baby, giving 22 talks in the first two years! Here's the link.. It sounds pretty crazy to me, so I'm not exactly recommending it.

So far we don't have much of a daytime schedule at all, so my best bet is just trying to nurse soon before any meeting I don't want to have to nurse during... but hopefully we will have a schedule before 4.5 months and spring semester!

Think we're going to have a nanny MWF (days I lecture) and I'll bring Sylvia in TuTh. We're hoping to share the nanny with another faculty member that has a baby 5 months older than Sylvia, cause gosh it's expensive!

22 talks with baby does sound pretty crazy! Link was down for the moment, will try to read about later.
