Thoughts on this mommas?  Personally, I didn’t mind (although this was about 14 years ago pre-covid). 😏

Has it ever happened to you?? 🙃

  1. I’ve never been a person who touches a baby without parent’s permission even family members, but because I see so many moms in this era that literally get offended even by asking genuine questions I’ve decided to not pay attention to babies or pregnant women. I don’t bother to look or ask! Simple as that. I’m blessed to have my own kids!

  2. I am guilty of it. My coworker brought her baby in and i held him and kissed him on the cheek. He was soooo cute. I didn’t know better. She raised hell. I was so ashamed. He was 9 months old and this was 8 years ago.

  3. People in general tend to reach out and touch babies’ hands and feet, especially if they’re exposed… As a way of being friendly… and there is no rudeness in asking them not to do that because you as their parent is not comfortable with it! BUT it’s definitely a big no for someone to pick up or hold your baby without taking permission…. !! I’ve had semi-strangers, as in people i already know touch my 5 months old baby’s exposed hands and feet, and sometimes i just ask them not to ….. Definitely a completely different experience with a complete stranger especially in the pandemic

  4. Regardless, you still need to be kind to a stranger who touches your baby. Maybe that stranger was a mother who suffers from a miscarriage or had lost her baby when she gave birth. But it’s still depends. Just be kind or dont over react. I dont really like touching babies, too but I like staring at them because theyre just so adorable.
