    THREE people now, I repeat, THREE have said to me "Is he crawling yet"
    I just nonchalantlysaid "nope, not yet"
    And then say things like .. "really, not yet?" or "Hes a bit behind, isn't he?"

    okay look at my ticker ... he's 8 weeks old tomorrow :rofl:

    I get that too!

    At 4 weeks old, OH's mum came to visit and asked "is he holding a rattle yet, has he said his first word yet?" WTF? I mean...sheesh...he was still classed as a newborn. I doubt he'll even attempt to grab a rattle until he's at least 3 months old.

    J refused to grab a rattle until 3 months. He's now 5 1/2 months and still not crawling or saying "mama". Does that mean he's behind?

    Maybe those people need to take a look at milestone development charts before opening their mouths. lol

    When the most recent person asked if he was crawling yet, and I said no .. they asked "well then how does he get around the house?" :rofl: I said "I carry him" and he said "Still?!" .. :rofl:

    I used to get that too, drove me nuts. My MIL asked me at 9 weeks along how I was enjoying my wriggling bump...erm...I was very overweight, and well, at 9 weeks? Who has a bump then let alone a wriggling one.

    Too funny!!! When I told my brother (who has a 2 year old) that Clara started sleeping through the night at 5 weeks old except for the odd time she woke to have the soother put in her mouth he says to me, can't she put it in herself yet? She was 5 weeks old!!! I guess my nephew was able to do that from birth lmao.

    i think thats a generational thing though, my mum started training me at 6 months and i was fully dry by 12 months! that was back in the day though when nappies werent as good and they wer able to train sooner as bubbbas could feel the wetness more! (so my hv tells me)

    This made me giggle :rofl:

    I usually reply with something similar to cleckner, and say "She's not doing X, Y or Z, but she's been busy composing her first symphony and plotting to take over the world in the evenings" :haha:
