Unhappy They MADE FUN OF MY BABY!!!(babylegs)(UPDATES of church replies)

I wasn't sure what category to put this...its not really "diapers"... "parenting" is it? if its in the place please move it to the right one

I am SOOOOOO sad/frustrated/upset.... I bought a bunch of Babylegs and I made some.... I was/am planning on using them w/ a onesie/1 pc outfit for my DS this summer (to protect his knees from ground and sun) ...well...today I put a Blue onesie on him and a grey pr with blue stripes that matched it...I couldn't wait to show him off...

I get to church and everyone starts making fun of him...adults...Saying he looked like he just got zapped here from the 1980's, while on his way to aerobics class. And how "nobody wears leg-warmers these days, especially boys"... I tried to tell them they are "babylegs" and how they have been featured on Oprah, and how they are popular with the celebs for their babies, etc... they just kept laughing at him and calling him the "aerobics baby"....

Now what? I just put a WHOLE lot of investment into these things...got like 4 pr here already and atleast 4-5 more coming....

...not even one "what a cleaver idea" or anything....

PS: he is 14mths old...

So sorry Christine. That's so sad. I think they're so cute. In fact, last week while I was working at BRU, there was a woman who came in and her little girl was wearing BL. I had to say something, because definitely not something seen everyday around here. So, you're not the only one around here.

Re: They MADE FUN OF MY BABY!!!(babylegs)

i think they're great!!!! we've gotten a few "those are for girls" comments, but all the people at the church we just started attending think they're WONDERFUL!!!! they said that his "britches" (yes we're in TX ) are too cool!!!! the first time he was in shorties and the babylegs lol. it's amazing how different people react to different things....some of them may have just been following what another person said and actually really like them....people are weird like that, and in some churches you find a lot of high school behaviour for whatever reason...i don't get it either!!!!
