You would be surprised.
Not sure what type of functions you're referencing, but my ex-husband, back when he was a full-time stay-at-home-dad, volunteered for the Obama campaign, he would take our daughters with him (admittedly, older than infant age, but more apt to whine about being booooorrrrrrrred!
). The other volunteers grew to LOVE having the girls around the office - they were a distraction from the day-to-day, and the attention the girls got from some of the other volunteers gave my ex a little extra time to focus on HIS work. Win-win.
It's worth a shot! Worst that can happen is that, no, it doesn't work out, so you're back at not going to functions. Nothing lost, but you'll know for sure.
