let's face it not every baby is cute looking...most are but..

when you see an ugly baby have you ever been at a lack of words, kind of shell shocked by the pure ugliness of a baby?

  • hubby says that all babies look like Winston Churchill. i think all are cute no matter how ugly they are and yeah i have seen some ugly babies but they are still cute as a buttton. My standard reply to a new baby is- Mama looks pretty good for this soon after having a baby.

  • My sister and I had a conversation about this when I was pregnant with our first!! I wonder if their parents see their child is not cute? I told my sister I would never admit I had an ugly child, but if I didn't talk at all about how cute/adorable the baby was, SHE would know!! LOL!!

  • Its mean BUT it happens. And yes I have been completly speakless. My best friend has two babies by 2 diffrent men. Her first was absolutly ADORABLE. Curly blonde hair, bright blue eyes (strangly looks just like mine lol) but then she had her second. Not so cute. Long black hair and it was only around the back of her head like a clown lol, and had these llike red brown eyes, short limbs and a really big body. Poor baby was so messed up looking (like her sperm donor) when I walked in the hospital room to see her the only thing I could get out was "Hey hunny how ar...Oooooh my.... look at her." She is 20 times cuter then her big sister though but we cant tell if she got cuter or her sister got uglier lmao! Bash me all you want but I dont know anyone who hasnt thought to themself that another baby was ugly.

  • so let me guess op do you also have nothing to say when you see a baby that has down syndrome because " it's not cute"?

  • I have seen some babies that are less than attractive, but sometimes they grow up to be gorgeous. Don't tell my husband, but I see a very early baby picture of him, and he wasn't ugly, but he wasn't as adorable as he was at 4 yrs old, up til now. I've seen babies that were cute and grew up ugly, so I guess it has alot to do with how the child is taken care of and how they end up taking care of themselves.

  • Anon 3:58- Not all down syndrom babies are UGLY! My brothers, girlfriends, little brother had down syndrome and he was the cutest baby I have ever seen in my life. I secretly tried to trade my baby for him as a joke lol.

  • I have definitely seen some ugly babies. But then, I look back at my baby's pictures (he's 14 months) and I think that he wasn't as cute at 3, 6 months etc. as I thought he was then. But now he's utterly adorable : )
