    I think it's rude to take food to someone elses house and eat it in front of them (unless it's dietary) without checking ahead to see if they want anything. If they say no that's fine but you at least ask.
    But to do it to people with a young baby in the house... Very rude.

    Exactly this. So rude!!

    You'd think that, right? But nope...they have kids!

    Thanks everyone for your opinions...I think I may have convinced DP that it was a tad rude, now

    Are you suggesting childless people are rude and lack manners??? I don't have children but would never do this.

    Ummm I am in the minority and I don't think this is rude. I agree with PP that I would think it was more their way of not expecting you to cook them dinner. In their situation i would have assumed you guys would have had dinner by that time...

    lol I have someone that does this - comes to my house to visit on lunch time with take away for themselves and sits there and eats it in front in me and the kids. It's not I expect them to shout me a free lunch. But as someone else said, either ring ahead and ask if I want something (I would give them $$), eat before they come or after they go.

    I'm glad this has been posted as it annoys me and I'm always wondering if I was just being difficult lol

    I think she was implying that people without children may not know how hard it can be to juggle a newborn with having to cook dinner etc.

    The majority of childless people I know have been completely considerate and thoughtful.

    Did they bring their kids? If so, then it might've been so that their kids didn't ask you for food.

    I used to get so embarrassed every time we visited the grandparents when the little ones would be complaining for food. So now I stop at a fruit shop on the way and take a bag of fruit in with me. That way when the kids ask, I give them food. (I offer some to the grandparents also, but they always refuse.)

    I dont think its rude because you have a new baby. I think its rude because they should have eaten it before they had arrived or rang ahead and asked if you wanted any etc.
    I hace had people do this to us before, but I never expect anything but stupidity from them.
