LOL, people were always offering ours a high chair way before he could have used one-he is a huge kid, but still. People are silly.

Once an older man was saying how he liked how DS was dressed in blue and made the statement that putting boys in pink or yellow makes them gay. uh, yeah.

TBH, if you take a restaurant high chair (the regular kind not the fancy smancy) and flip it upside down it's the right size to put an infant carseat on and keep your baby seat up high and more secure than in a regular chair. maybe that's what the restaurant people meant.

Re: So I guess you've never seen a baby before..ever...

we never brought a car seat, we have a convertible seat that stays in the car we did have the car seat when he was tiny but they never asked then

Re: So I guess you've never seen a baby before..ever...

Some people have no concept of age and that's especially true, if they have no children themselves.

My partner's co-worker is expecting her first child in November and she has NO experience with children at all. DP was telling her about some things that DD was starting to do/learning and she kept asking "Is she delayed, shouldn't she have been doing that before she was a year old?"

To give more information - DP was telling her about how DD has learned a lot of her colors and now knows how to count to 10 and is starting to learn letters.

... Oh, and when DD was 2.5 months old, we took her to the hospital, because she wasn't breathing properly (she had croup and an URI) and that's where the Pediatrician said to go. Anyway, once we got there... the doctor kept referring to DD as a "he." REPEATEDLY. I corrected him every single time. I kept saying "HER name is MAKENNA MAE." He'd say "Oh, OK." Then, say "HE" again or "HIM/HIS."

I even asked if he was looking at the right file, because my child is a FEMALE and he was clearly trying to treat a MALE. So annoying.

I would have thought this too..except at the restaurant we were at they have those slings that you sit the car seat in. So they were just stupid

Re: So I guess you've never seen a baby before..ever...

That's when you KNOW those people don't have kids.

When DS was 2 months old, asleep in his carseat, we took him into a restaurant for a quick bite to eat and the waitress actually GAVE US SILVERWARE FOR HIM. haha. She was a young college girl, I just smiled. They will figure it all out when they have kids lol.

Re: So I guess you've never seen a baby before..ever...

We went out to eat once when DD was just a few weeks old and the waiter asked if we wanted a high chair for her. Then brought her a kid's menu and asked what we wanted for her drink.

People constantly call DS a girl because he has long hair, which I think is ridiculous. He looks 100% boyish in his face and he wears clothes that are obviously boy's clothing.

Re: So I guess you've never seen a baby before..ever...

We took ds to a restaurant when he was 3 months old and we were asked if he wanted crayons and they brought him the kids menu and a glass of water. Dh and I laughed it off and saved the crayons and menu as a keepsake.

Also my sister had our kids on the exact same day and she had twins. Her boys are half hispanic and have lots of dark hair and dark skin where as my son is super white and a complete baldy and we get asked if they are triplets whenever we go out. I want to say seriously look a little closer. Granted they are the same age but look nothing alike. Most of the time we just tell them the amazing story about how they are cousins all born on the same day.
