I have a really tall, chubby 10 month old baby girl and she's pretty strong and active for her age. Consequently I'm constantly having to rein her in when we go to baby groups, as she is very friendly but doesn't know her own strength yet. I understand that she's bigger than a lot of other babies her age and we're always careful to be considerate of other children in social situations.
So, we were at the park today and my DD began crawling over to an older toddler. This little boy must have been intimidated by her as he asked his mother to 'go, up, up' to be held. To which she replied 'don't worry you want to get away from the MONSTER baby!' At first I just tried to brush it off, but then I thought how rude! Call my baby big, call her tall or even huge if you wish, but don't call her a monster! She's a sweet girl who always has a smile and a giggle for everyone.
So, as we were leaving, I approached this woman and said CONT.

What is a polite way of telling people that my DD doesn't need anything...
