Stop that crying!

Q My cubicle-mate constantly brings her baby to work. He’s adorable, of course, but his crying and fussing distract me. I don’t want to go running to HR about this and make it harder for a new mom. What should I do?

A Find a solution with your coworker. Maybe she would agree to bring in her baby during hours when you’re not at your desk. Or maybe she could work in another cubicle when the baby’s along. Perhaps you could set up a temporary wall to help absorb the noise and increase your privacy. Or try headphones. If there’s no way to work together on this, there’s nothing wrong with asking your boss or HR to help.
