Becoming a mom is an exciting and joyous time, but it can also bring some unexpected and downright weird comments from others. Here are some of the weirdest things people have said to moms about their newborns.
Not as Cute as Her Nephew
One person shared that their unlikable stepmom said their baby was “not as cute as [her nephew].” She kept comparing their baby to her nephew, saying he was cuter because of his darker hair and tanner skin.
Another mom shared that she’s had multiple people comment on her mixed-race toddler’s nose, saying it’s not as cute as a “white” (pointy) nose. She found this comment offensive and didn’t know how to respond.
Not as Beautiful as Her Grandson
One person shared that her mom said no one can be as beautiful as her grandson, who was her only grandkid at the time. She was against them having more kids and reducing the amount of attention they could give their firstborn.
Threats to Take the Baby
Another person shared that their mother-in-law keeps threatening to “take” their baby because she’s being “helpful.” This is causing the new mom stress and anxiety.
Stranger Asking to Hold the Baby
One person shared that a stranger at Disney World asked if they could hold their baby.
“Some dude sat down on a bench next to me at Disney world and asked if he could hold my son. I thought this dude was joking so I was like “oh haha no.” He repeated himself, saying “can I hold the baby??” and I was like “no, you may not.” Then he turned to whoever was next to him (they didn’t know him either???) and went “she says no one else can hold the baby.””
Jokes About Half-Italian Baby
Another woman shared that she got pregnant while in Italy, and the number of jokes she’s heard about their baby coming out half-Italian are just ridiculous.
One person shared that when she told her mom about her Braxton Hicks, the mom said she was having a miscarriage. This was confusing, especially since she was nearly full-term.
Lucky to Not Wake Up to Feed Him
Another mom shared that her boss told her that she was lucky because she wouldn’t have to wake up to feed her baby, who was unexpectedly in NICU for a few days. This was an insensitive and naive comment, as she was up pumping every couple of hours.
Big Nose Comments
Another person shared that her mother-in-law made a weird comment about the unborn baby having her husband’s big nose. She found this comment confusing, as the ultrasound picture clearly did not show a big nose.
