1: New born babies in tracksuits that are blatently made from adult material (shell suit type) and trainers that look like they are dragging their feet down.
2: People who constantly have their baby in a car seat when not neccasery (in the house when there is a bouncer etc nearby, shopping for hours on end when they could be in the pram)
3: People who complain their baby isn't sleeping through when it has just been born, give it time for christ sake.
4: You've chose that name? I like.... (I don't care if you don't like my choice, I do not hear what you would prefer my baby to be called)
Whats your pet hates?
I am getting tired of people telling me about how much they gained and their pregnancies. I don't talk about my issues unless asked, which of course gives them the opportunity to tell their story. The only people I really want to hear from are my Mum and my friends who have had kids.
I am not too fussed YET about other people's ways of doing things. I am sure I will have some once the babe is out and if we join and Mommy playdate club things.
I hate being told "You don't look pregnant", well no, my baby is the size of a peach, do you want me to be 4 stone heavier? But they would equally judge me if I had put on loads of weight. Considering I'm not a mam already, I have so many things that other people do that annoy me, but tbf I would never interfere in their parenting as I would hate someone to do it to me.
There's a thing I cannot stand... but.. I don't want my kid under 1 year old to be fed with chocolate, fast food or pop, fizzy juice! :/ I see kids drinking pepsi under 1 or 2 from their "milk" bottle.. just because they cry so much.. it's not healthy for their teeth
People who feel the need to judge my baby choices. I am planning to breastfeed, baby wear and cloth diaper to name a few and instead of being asked why I chose to do it, or saying thats awesome (even in a sarcastic tone crap I would take that) I get Ha good luck with that or you will stop. Um I never once said anything negative about your parenting choices even those I disagreed with.
The weight or appearance thing for sure. I am so sick of people wanting to know my weight gain.
About the car seat, people are astounded we got a convertible car seat because we couldn't leave the baby in it "Well you will have to wake the baby up every time you get out of the car". My goddaughter had always stayed in her car seat but when they came to visit I wanted to carry her in a sling so I did. She fussed at first but if she wanted to sleep she went right back to sleep in the sling. Plus sometimes when they took the car seat out she woke up anyway.
I'm tired of hearing how I dont "look" pregnant!
How I should find out the gender
ooh how my mom Wants a girl... "hear that baby... you better be a girl" while touching my stomach.. she's lucky I have self control
How I "better sleep now"
and when I'm doing just about anything fun - "You won't be able to do that anymore once baby is here"
ones I hate for seeing
babies with ears pierced (especially boys)
eating fast food/drinking pop
Pacifiers when they are talking (don't hate me if your kid did this)
Children who "need" to watch tv to go to sleep
Children who will ONLY drink chocolate or strawberry milk
