I’ve done it but it was my own business and non client-facing so I had a lot of flexibility and could work with a baby hanging off my boob. But it was so intense and really horrible at times. DS1 had way too much screen time and I’d let DS2 do whatever he wanted just so he’d be quiet during a call which leads to some pretty bad habits being ingrained. It also means you have to squeeze every last moment for productivity and that can be exhausting.
So, if you can avoid it, I wouldn’t recommend it, and definitely no if you’re working for someone else and your work is based on hours over output.
