    I feel for you, my sister had her little boy last year 5 months before mine was born and every time I update my status and say anything about my baby she has to do the same thing. Plus she always shoves her baby in my Mums arms even if my little one is trying to get there. I try not to let it bother me to much. If this friend is really driving you to beyond frustration I would say delete her but have you thought of why she might be trying to make out things are perfect? Maybe she is struggling but doesn't want people to know

    Just ignore her and don't get involved. It's childish and stupid. When you post anything on Facebook change the settings so it's hidden from her. Or just delete her.

    My BFF & another friends babies are cousins & a month apart the other friend is very competitive. Like oh D does this so clever Does B do that yet. Oh don't worry will get there eventually. She's so one up on everyone when it comes to her baby doing things first or better its very frustrating.

    Yeah it's very frustrating! Another thing that also is really frustrating me is my mother in law constantly telling me to give my son a dummy.

    My son doesn't cry at all, the only time he cries is when he is hungry & when he is getting changed sometimes - I assume he is cold. I can understand considering giving him a dummy if he was screaming all the time but he doesn't need it.

    She was holding him and talking to him saying 'you would just love a dummy but your mummy and daddy are mean and won't let you have one'

    Gah! So frustrating. Why introduce something if I don't need it!

    Ugh I hear you about the dummy! I didn't want to give my daughter one until she was about a month old as everything I'd read said it could interfere with breastfeeding. Yet I don't know how many times my mum suggested it, and every time I'd respond with "we're waiting until she's about a month old so it doesn't compromise my milk supply or her feeding". In the end I caved after 2 weeks because we were struggling with a lack of sleep, and it turned out to be a good thing for her and us, but it was so frustrating that mum kept suggesting something that she knew I didn't want to do!!

    Is it possible to talk to her and see if it actually is she's not coping, only putting on the 'everything is perfect' face? Or are you not really close (I read how she's a friend of a friend thing but are you two friends? )

    If you're not close I'd block her. Explain to your dp that you're over it but you're not putting up with her cr@p anymore.

    As for the dummy issue, well everyone else obviously knows better! I'd just ignore those 'aren't mummy and daddy mean' comments. Your baby, your choice!

    Good luck op!

    What is it with women like this!?
    We have a "friend" who is similar... I just try to have as little to do with her as possible... Which is hard because we are in the same circle..

    Her son is 6 weeks younger than mine and is CONTANTLY making comparisons! I hate it!
    When we were all together for a BBQ one day I bf DS in the backyard (there were 3 couples all up) and she said something like "woah! Just whip em out!" Yet it's ok for her to flash her breasts to everyone whenever she feels the need but it's not ok for me to feed my DS?


    Lol! She even made reference once to how "big" her DS penis and testicles were, because apparently every-time he falls onto his bum he cries because he lands on them hahahahahaha pfft... Whatever makes you feel good Hun!

    Yeah... I don't think she realises how she is coming across, as she has asked to meet up, which is why I'm tolerating her. Because I think she means well, but it just gets so frustrating and I needed to vent lol!

    She is a friend of a friend, I wouldn't say we are close friends.. But we did talk a lot while we were pregnant (and of course her pregnancy was perfect too - lol) but I just want to enjoy my son and not worry about how he is going compared to her son.

    The dummy thing is very annoying - but I have had so many issues with my mother in law ... We didn't speak to her for 3 months before my son was born... Things are only just back to normal, so it's not worth saying anything. I just ignore her... And I'll tell my partner to say something instead ... Lol. I just hate that people force stuff on you.. And even if you say no, we aren't doing that. They keep going! My partner is really against dummies as well & when he told his mum our reasoning for not wanting to give him one, she got all angry because she gave her boys dummies.
