    Wow these stories are purely awful. There are some very rude people in this world! I thankfully don't have anything quite as bad, probably the worst for me was I was at a party for one of DS' little friends and I gave him ONE corn chip to try (he was 9 months) and a lady came over and told me off about it and said they are full of poisonous c**p etc. The reason it affected me is little did she know up until that point not a single piece of 'junk' food had passed his lips as I'm quite strict like that (while he is so little anyway) and I thought 'it's a party, I'll just relax a bit a give him one' and then get told off for it!!

    I have never had any comments like that and it ain't because I'm perfect - maybe I look like a cranky cow or because I'm not a young mum people don't think they need to *teach* me. I have been waiting for comments about DD's mongolian blue spot too.

    I've had a few rude comments while breastfeeding aswell,

    One time when I was on a bus DS1 was unsettled and wanted a feed, (i was breastfeeding at the time) so i did the natural thing and started to feed him, it was the middle of summer and freaking hot and an older lady asked if i wanted her to pass me the blanket I had hung over the pram to cover up, I politely said no thankyou (as I was getting off in a couple of stops, and because it was extremely hot) she turned around and said, well I dont think the whole bus wants to see that.
    If they don't want to see "that" then they shouldn't look!!!!

    Being asked if ds was adopted coz he's half Asian ...

    When I was 36 weeks pregnant, and at Christmas, being told that I would never stop putting weight on if I kept eating christmas treats ...

    Being told that breastfeeding after 6 months is disgusting ...

    Oh! When I was 5-6 months pregnant I'd just popped a pot belly and I hadnt eaten and enjoyed food in months and I got a muffin from muffin break and a coffee and I was enjoying it a lot and some random guy (maybe 40-50 years old) tells me to go easy and watch my weight.

    I was stunned to say 'im pregnant you poo head!' but it ruined the rest if my muffin

    That's probably it, that I can remember.
    I had one similar to that when I told my friend I was pregnant she said "well you know what you have to do" as in have an abortion, I was like "no I don't!"

    Ummm there are heaps.

    When DD1 was a baby we were out to dinner and she started crying so i took her for a little walk away from the dining area. An old man gave me a filthy look and then said (in the rudest tone possible) "So was it worth the baby bonus?" - i assume insinuating i had her to get the baby bonus

    I dyed my hair bright red once and someone said "I like your hair, it matches your pimples" - really made me feel like crud.

    I have more but i leave it at that for now.

    DD1 spent most of her first year in a brace for her hips - it held her legs up and out, a little like a frog.
    I had her in the pram and went into the bank and the teller looked at her and laughed and said "That's not very lady like". Pfft and neither are you. We actually closed the account not long after that.

    Our specialist actually told us to cover up DD2 when she was in plaster for her hips, he had heard many stories from parents that had been asked how/why they broke their babies legs. So rude!
