Mom brings newborn to work making headlines when boss unknowingly snaps photo & makes remark online


The new mom hadn’t noticed her boss taking a photo of her and her newborn only to find out when she came across it posted online. But that wasn’t all. Underneath the photo her boss made a remark turning heads and unfolding into a moment the new mom would never forget.

We all have to agree that moms are our everyday heroes. There’s nothing they wouldn’t do for the happiness of their little ones. And although children grow older very quickly and become less dependent of the parents as time goes by, little babies need their mommies around the clock.

This is all great and I am sure every mother out there would choose to spend her days around her children before anything else, but most of them have jobs they have to return to after giving birth.

Melody Jett Blackwell is a mother of the sweet baby Nora-Jo. But this mother was lucky enough to be having a very understanding boss who lets her bring her bundle of joy with her when she needs to be at the office. This day was one of those when Nora-Jo was accompanying Melody at work. These mother and daughter were enjoying a sweet moment together and it was the reason for Melody’s boss to make a public comment about bringing babies in the workplace.

This really was a moment way too precious not to be shared with the world. Melody made motherhood look like a piece of cake, or at least her boss though so. The pictures of the two bonding while working was uploaded on the Maryland Farms Chiropractic Facebook page but neither Melody nor her boss could imagine now much attention it would gather.


“Workin’ mamas. She makes it look easy. It helps that Baby Nora-Jo is so sweet and content just being with and near her mama. Would y’all mind sharing this? We need more small and large businesses to see this is doable and should be allowed more often! The newborn months are so short. #WorkinMamas post a pic of you and your little ones while you work!”

Melody is still allowed to work from home and she only visits her workplace when it’s pretty crowded at the office and her colleagues need an extra hand. She works at a chiropractic office in Brentwood, Tennessee and her employee lets her take as many breaks as she needs for breastfeeding her baby.

With all those people sharing and reacting to the photo, Melody and her boss realized it could be an inspiration for more companies or other businesses to allow the same thing to their newly mom employees.

Melody told Love What Matters:

“I know not every office and work environment is conducive for children and babies, but I think more places can be more flexible than they are currently.”

This flexibility may result in reducing the costs for a daycare and increasing mother’s productivity.

“I think many families find it almost makes more financial sense for one parent to stay home, rather than go to work just to have most or all of their checks pay for day care.”
