    Ahhhh my MIL called my baby girl that a few times, I hated it! So bogan sounding! Always in the context of 'oh she knows how to say Nanna but just won't do it the little *****.' Grrrrrr

    It just sounds so rough, like something a houso would snarl at their daughter. Not nice.

    I remember a work colleague of mine used to say that about her baby daughter and it horrified me. I'm pretty relaxed and very hard to offend when it comes to bad language but yeah, I just hated a baby bring referred to as a little bit+ch.

    Ive done it. I use the term "little sh!t" more often, usually when we are having a laugh about something one of the kids has said/done. We also refer to them as the ferals. Again, normally having a laugh about something.

    It's more the way this person said it. If you heard it I'm sure you'd understand.

    For some reason feral and little **** seem much more acceptable to me than b****. And in saying that I wouldn't hesitate to use the word to someone else to describe a kids behaviour - as in 'he/she was just being b****y all day.

    I'm the op - i do actually use feral quite often and hadn't thought twice about it. As in: the kids have been acting feral all day.

    I loathe that word being used about anyone, adult or child. But its especially awful to refer to a child that way.
