Re: When to stop babying your babies??

derogatory. A person regarded as effeminate or cowardly.

derogatory. Feeble and cowardly.

I think these definitions is why I am uncomfortable with the word. It's derogatory and being used about a baby. If this isn't how the OP meant it, then it was a poor choice of word.

Anyway, if the question is, when do you stop responding to every single bump, I'd say at about 6 months. I follow my kids lead though, and if they are genuinely scared or sad or hurt, I react with love and care regardless of gender or to how they might turn out later on.
Read my post. I also put in terms from the dictionary's description. Its NOT in every form meant that way. So calm down.

Here you go:

2.*A person regarded as timid or cowardly

sissy*- a timid man or boy considered childish or unassertive

Now pansie...would be different. But sissy? Really?
