If you are showing with your baby, if they are wearing a shirt, they aren't as slippery.

Depends on the school. In the public system, most teachers welcomed the help. In the Montessori schools we have been involved in (3), they asked for volunteers for very specific things, usually just field trips, not in the classroom. They did, however, have scheduled classroom visitations. They also had much lower student/teacher ratios (8:1, 11:2).

+1 for portable playpen doubling as a crib when traveling. This made bedtime at relatives so much easier.
