I think maybe its a little inappropriate for non parents to be at babes in arms sessions, unless they are going with somebody who is a parent. My LO is breastfed on demand and I have a hard time covering her and latching on but in a babes in arms session Id feel less self conscious if I dropped the scarf I use to cover myself as most people there are probably breast feeding too. But having lots of seniors there I would feel as if I 'shouldnt' breast feed there. After all, seniors get lots of discounts everywhere.
Babes in arms are half price??? why did I never know this? *pushes past pensioners to the front of the line*
It's very rude. I went to a session when my daughter was a few weeks old to see Argo. An older couple were in the cinema (they had been told it was a mums and bubs session) and they made a very loud comment that they couldn't believe anyone would bring a baby to the movies.
Considering I was the only mum, I was pretty offended, especially considering she slept the whole time. Another couple said how well behaved she was as we were leaving so I didn't feel quite so annoyed!
So they went to a babes in arms showing, were told exactly what that was and the purpose of it i.e. for mums with babies to be able to watch a movie without the worry of disturbing others... still bought the ticket... then had the audacity to complain about the baby?
I went to my first mums n bubs session last week. There was probably about 30 mums and their bubs in the cinema. Some bubs cried and some bubs slept. I didn't actually notice anyone in there that didn't have kids. However if there was and something was said to me I wouldn't hold back saying something. It's really poor form. These sessions are advertised as mums n bubs session so you are going to expect crying babies and people moving around. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience OP but I hope it doesn't deter you going again.
I think anyone should be allowed in but if they come in they need to be respectful of the parents in there
No problem with non parents going, as long as they're not taking up seats that parents one and don't complain about the babies!!
perhaps they shouldn't advertise the half price and let it be a pleasant surprise to the parents, and they should actively deter non parent patrons from those sessions.
How funny :laugh: I would have had much more to say to her than the OP did to be honest, what a silly old cow
