Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

 When you see a mom pushing her baby along in a store while the baby cries and yet she doesn't pick up her child, what do you think? Does it bother you or do you shrug it off?

I think nothing other than the sound of a baby crying will forever annoy me.

I don't make judgements about why the mother isn't picking-up the baby.  Her baby could be colicky, in which case, NOTHING will soothe the child.

 I've been there, so I know how it is... You have to get groceries, and other house hold needed items. And sometimes there is no way around having to take your child/baby with you.

Me too

Quoting couponluv72:

I think she is likely too frazzled to want to pick the baby up, the baby won't die from crying.

My baby has not done this in a store yet, she is 17 months. When she was little I would wear her in my ergo if I knew it was going to be a while. If it was quick I would use the stroller or travel system and so far so good. Even as a toddler she is usually compliant, then again whenever we go to the grocery store she gets super excited bc the lady at the bakery gives her a cookie LOL. She starts saying "Mmmmmm" as we approach the parking lot lol. The "Mmmm" gets more enthusiastic as we get out of the car and go inside lol.

I want to borrow the baby. I would never offer because that would be weird, but I always think it. I love babies so it would be kind of selfish. Lol
