    I absolutely get the no pram thing.

    Cafes are often small, when i have to use a pram i get a coffee with friends at mcdonalds or i used a slong / held ds.

    As for the comments, people are just showing thier stupidity and ignorance, i feel sorry for them as clearly they dont know the joy of children

    I thought that children should always be clean and anything else was a bit gross.

    I thought that parents should not let them be too noisy/ make loud squealy noises/ cry/ have tantrums, and that it was a lack of discipline that led to that behaviour.

    Oh I could go on and on.

    Needless to say, in that department anyway, I was an idiot.

    Buuut to defend myself (if I can) - I was never a maternal person, so I felt no "aww" feelings toward kids, and I thought they were a bit yucky. For a long time I didn't really want kids of my own, and the idea scared me. And I'd never been around them, and I didn't understand.

    I am a reformed character (promise). But I can understand why people might have those feelings toward kids in public places, having been not the most tolerant toward them myself in the past.

    Lol I knew everything before I had kids too!

    More probably her ears were really hurting her...anyway kudos to you for knowing EXACTLY why was wrong with this other mother's 'distressed baby'. Geez, it must of been annoying when you clearly could have mothered someone else's baby waaaay better than they could have.

    There certainly are some intolerant, bad tempered folks roving about the news.com site that's for sure. How draining to go through life getting ticked off over such minor stuff as someone bringing their pram into a cafe.

    Gods I sincerely hope this was intentional... Because if not, you just failed in a horribly dismal way.
