Was anyone else like this with kids?

Before having a baby, did holding a drooling baby kind of make you uneasy, but after having your own child, you don't even notice it (even with other people's kids)?

  • Yes, I was just like that, but now it doesn't bother me at all. At least I am not the only one that felt that way. LOL

  • No. But, changing another baby's dirty diaper always made me gag a little. Whereas I never reacted that way with my own.

  • Yes, I thought it was completely gross, although I don't want anyone elses babys drool on me.

    My babys drooled all the time and it didn't bother me at all.

  • Yep same way. I had to do some babysitting at first to realize that babies do drool and poop all the time. I had a hard time with changing a baby before i actually had my own.. By then i was a pro.. lol.

  • I've been around little kids most of my life and have many nieces and nephews, so drooling and stuff didn't really bother me much.

  • Oh man, I'm completely desensitized. I can ignore drool, spit up, poop (well, mostly), sticky hands, and someone pulling on your sleeve saying "Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy" incessantly. I totally get it now, but before mine....it was irritating and gross. LOL
