This is one of those things that you have to get used to....I don't really think that people mean to come across gruff or telling you what to do....they just want to talk. I always feel kinda sorry for the old ladies who kinda bum rush you when they see the little babies. A lot of them don't have any grandchildren/greatgrandchildren and they feel they've got to give their advice to someone. I wouldn't take it personally...just smile, nod, and then let it fleet your brain!

Ditto on Steph and rl! Just keep in mind that we will one day be "one of them" and will probably be a little crazy too:-) (or some of us....crazier)

Okay I just tried to post a reply to this and it didn't work...weird. Anyways, I was just saying it's only respectful to be a little more tolerant in those types of situations, IMO. Just keep in mind that they did everything TOTALLY differently when their kids were little and they *think* that they are helping. Think being the key word and nod does work wonders.

people in the street really do think pregnant women and mums r puplic property and they can put the 2 pence in when eva they want. i no i no it will never change but it is bloody irritating lol

A binky is a pacifier, hello. I hate it when people come and touch my baby's hands before I can stop them-he puts his hands in his mouth! That drives me crazy! At least I haven't had to deal with the random people that much, but I haven't taken him out that much either!
