  • I am a VERY honest person...but in this case, I'd probably lie. What good is telling someone that they don't have a cute kid going to do? It's just going to make them feel bad. Deep down, they know their kid isn't the cutest, but doesn't every mom think that their child is cute?

  • I wouldnt say anything. I'd just look at the baby and smile thinking "wow. ...poor baby".

    If i were asked "isnt she/he cute?" i'd just smile and nod. ...all babies have potential to be cute. right?

  • People don't usually ask if their baby is cute. So, you don't have to lie. Just think of something else to say. What a sweet baby or how old is he now. That's such a fun age or stage or whatever. Or, when my son was that age I loved to ... Try to stay away from the crossed eyes or pug nose or whatever shocking feature you hope the poor kid grows out of.

  • Why would you tell a parent such a thing? How do you know it's just not your opinion. All babies are beautiful, individual and unique. Never label someone as not cute, or even ugly.
