  • You could wear a shirt that says "Don't touch the tummy" or "No Tummy Touching allowed" or " I am not Buhda, therefore it is not lucky to rub my tummy!" or even just a picture of a hand touching a tummy with a big red circle and line through it. LOL. People are rude when they don't listen to what you want! It's your body not a public thing to touch after all!

  • If they touch yours that gives you freedom to touch theirs!!!!!! Most people are not big fans of that

  • That rarely happened....people seemed to know about "boundaries" and "personal space" back wheh I had kids ( 1971...) but it didn't really bother me. I don't think it means they are going to put a hex on your baby or anything. LOL!
    Why don't you like it?

  • Don't worry about seeming to be rude,you're not. If they are ballsy enough to touch you when you clearly don't want to be,the hell with them!

  • It's all in how you carry yourself. If you're out in public, clentch your purse strap and pull it in front of yourself. If you don't have a purse, fold your hands over your belly.

  • I've thought about making a t shirt that says please don't touch my stomach without permission. I'm also getting a sign for my daughter's carrier that says please wash hands before you touch mine.

  • I honestly never had it happen, not from strangers and I liked when friends and family wanted to feel. I probably come across as un-approachable in public...LOL. Try that route, if they think you look like you don't want to be touched or bothered, they should be less likely to do so.
