    I would t do anything, the child could be sick; at least they're outdoors even if it wasn't an ideal situation

    I wouldn't think anything of it. It wouldn't even register.

    If they are looking at her there are a million reasons like "what brand of pram is that? ", "is that one of those phones with an exploding battery", "i wish i could curl up in a pram too", "is that little Mia from kindy?" :-)

    I would totally empathise. My 5 year old has melt downs, easily overloaded, while my 3 year old will just keep on going happily.

    I wouldn't think anything about it.

    I always get stares. My family can be a bit of a freak show at times. I just ignore them. Its easy for me as i am not a social person. i imagine that would be much harder for others mums to ignore.

    I would look across and be incredibly jealous that that child was sitting still and their mum actually got to sit and chat with a friend while I am probably running after my 2yo that is running away

    I wouldn't think anything. Or I would think maybe the child was having a major tantrum and has now settled. Or maybe he had already been up and about running and climbing and is now exhausted. Or I would be too engaged with my own children to really notice.

    I wouldn't batter an eyelid. I might think, wow I wish my DS was that nice and quiet and well behaved so I can sit and have a coffee

    I do have a SIL who would probably make some snarly comment though. Thing is she is an extremely insecure mother, and it seems to make her feel like a better parent by pointing out things she disapproves of. She used to go on and on about how she would 'never' let her DD play with her iPhone, how bad technology was for them, bla bla bla. Knowing too well DH and I regularly used the iPhone to keep our very active DS amused in shopping centres and car trips.

    Of course fast forward a few years and she has since discovered that Peppa Pig on an iPhone is possibly one of the best inventions ever. Unfortunately she is still one of the most judgemental people I know...

    You're lucky cheescake I was just about to rip you a new one when I saw your second post!!

    Pre kids I would have judged. Post kids I wouldn't bat an eyelid - my eldest often uses my iPhone as a meltdown management tool.

    Where is this park?

    Seriously, I wouldn't judge because I wouldn't know the situation before hand and on another note it wouldn't be any of my business. Each parent has a reason as to what they do at the time.
