Sooo I didnt realise my husband had to be with me for my interview and he was 60 miles away watching our baby so I got rescheduled, any idea if I can bring my baby? I'm already frustrated that we are gona lose work pay to attend another interview so I'd rather not have to pay for a sitter too.

How old is your child? Sleepy newborn is easier than toddler needing your attention and preventing you from focusing...  No friend or family to take them for the day or come with you and supervise in the car during the interview?

If you show up with a baby, they won't make the baby stay outside alone so just do it.  I'm sure you won't be the first or last.

Hes a rambunctious 8 month old, the only person we have local is my father in law but he travels a lot, I will just probably have to bite the bullet and have someone watch him but hopefully its another Saturday when I can convince a friend to rather than pay a sitter

During my wife's interview on joint I 751/N400 my two year old son was with us. He still breastfeed and also he is a very active little one.  During the interview the USCIS officer allowed all three of us into her office.  She was very accommodating even when I was hinting if I should take out my son from her office once we  were done with the I 751 part.  She said she is fine for us to stay. Anyway  she had no problem that we stayed on the room for both the interviews.   My wife even breastfed my son right in front of the officer (my wife uses a cover for breastfeeding when in public) and she was OK with it.  During the N400 part of the interview to lessen any distraction I carried my son close to the door while my wife sat in front of the officer.  We were out of her office in less than 20 minutes.  No issues whatsoever.  The people at the local San Jose office thought my son was adorable.  These are people too who have families and do understand how it is to have a baby/toddler.  But anyway this was just our experience so YMMV.

Having a baby together actually helps your case. I've seen people making comments that when an officer sees a child they say it will be a quick interview. I'm bringing our almost 2 year old with us.
