  • Parents always think their baby is the cutest, so if I'm in that situation I just smile and say "awww what a sweet baby"... Then no ones feelings get hurt, and I didn't have to lie...lol

  • I usually say "How precious"
    All babies are precious.

  • I lie. I know I would be upset if someone called my baby ugly so I'm nice. I won't care the baby is cute. I would just say something along the lines of.. "Well look at you...How old is he/she?

  • I have yet to really see an ugly baby. (okay, okay, I have seen one but that's it). I normally just say "awww".

  • Its not up to me to say someone's baby is ugly the parents love their child I never lie I just say how what a heart breaker that baby is going to be.

  • "awww" the polite way to say "your kid is fugly"? lol
    Guilty as charged though. I have used "Aww" instead of "OMG How cute!"
    Thinking back, hmm. brb Gotta beat some butts for them thinking my kids was ugly!! lol

  • I'd say something like, "Aww, he has your eyes." :) Or, "Hey, look at her. Isn't she something."

    There's no need to hurt someone's feelings. On the other hand, unless I'm specifically asked "Isn't she cute?" I don't feel it's necessary to say so if I don't believe it. That said, I have yet to see an "ugly" baby. Some are cuter than others, but none are ugly.
