My husband and I don't post pictures of our babies anywhere (I used to post a few on here, but removed them all shortly after). Everyone in our family knows we do not approve of them sharing photos on Facebook, or any other website for that matter. I don't want our baby's pictures getting into the wrong hands, etc.
My sister had decided to post everything on FB when I had my daughter. It was frustrating after I got home to see it all. I never in posted I was in labor but right from when I went into the hospital down to me needing a emergency c-section she posted it all then my daughters birth time and name and weight. I was really mad but she saw it as nothing being wrong just being a loving aunt . This time I am telling people to not post as I would like to do it myself when I get home.
omg my mil announced the birth on her facebook and so a bunch of people congratulated me on mine and i was PISSED because there were important people i didn't get to tell yet.
But as a rule- NO. no one is allowed to show photos of my baby. AND i only allow certain friends to see the ones i take too. I know too many people who just try to become friends to be nosey to see photos of her. And it's not happening.
Oh I shut off my wall and dh's wall until I got home lol.
We did this too. Some of my relatives thought we were weird especially as our immediate family are really good about keeping secrets but some well-meaning person could easily make a slip and there were too many people we wanted to find out about DS' birth from us first hand. And then I got stuck at the hospital for 5 days but DH posted photos up so people found out that way
I also shut off my wall about a week before I knew I was being induced. I didn't tell anyone I was going in, I only relented and told my Mum and Dad the day I was going in!
My Mum and Dad don't use fb and they were the only people to take a photo at the hospital so no worries there. It happened to a friend of mine, someone posted on her wall congratulations, so everyone else joined in, I would have been fuming if anyone had announced it before me!

I do not mind if Evelyns grandparents or god parents put up pictures of her on their facebook (they havn't yet though, I know they probably will once they get to take pictures with her over vacation). I got to show her off first though I posted pictures the day after we got home from the hospital
I only rang my best friend while I was in hospital, and I told her specifically that I didn't want anything put on Facebook until I had chance to do it myself. But after that first initial announcement, as long as I'm tagged and the pictures aren't naked ones or in appropriate in any way, I don't mind so much my dad has posted a few up that he has taken. But since I live 350 miles away from all of my friends it's mainly just my family who share pics. But I upload every couple days so my best friend can see and she does the same with her little girl.
