I'd be ****ed off too Op ! But I would of said something! If you had stuff on the table then you had "claimed" that table.
You should of brought your kids back up and told them to budge up and sit down with them with your screamin baby
If there were other gazebo's obviously free then imo it was rude of them. I would have sat somewhere else, if I saw someone already set up and especially if I saw a sleeping baby. But some people are just rude I guess!
Oh dear... I used to, and still do getquite frustrated too when DS is woken. I'm a big believer in sleep and that was the one thing I was well, pretty anal about when DS was a younger baby. I feel for you.
But in saying that when I read your thread I thought ow man I wondeer if I've ever annoyed another mother at a park! To be honest when I'm out with DS I and kinda distracted with him most of the time as he loves to wander off and be adventurous, so I don't really take too much notice of what's going on around me... I talk to other Mums but not noisily or anything... there was a Mum at the park the other day holding a newborn-ish bub who was sleeping and I was chatting to her and it didn't occur to me I could be bothering her or her bub!
I will take more notice of this in future though having read this thread. My bub always slept through noise and earthquakes!
I'm thinking these women honestly didn't reaslise your frustration or give much thought to your sleeping bub. It is annoying, but try not to let it upset you too much.
If you said that to me I would move no problems, I agree they were inconsiderate , especially if there were other vacant gazebos but next time just politely say something, my son would sleep under a moving train so I sometimes forget not all babies can sleep any where!
