Eeeesh, I misspelled in my title, and I can't figure out how to edit it.......sorry
Again, the guy was jealous. I hope that you continue to proudly and fearlessly carry your babe in your moby wrap. HAPPY MOTHER's DAY.
PS: You must be doing something awesome if its getting that much attention. I bet that that guy's legs hurt and he wanted to get in the wrap... and all that he could do was insult you, because of his envy
or the all-encompassing and hard to argue with:
"This works for us" or "She loves it! And so do I! Hands free!"

I still carry my almost 4 year old in both my sling and my Moby....I wonder what he would have had to say about that???!!!

Maybe you should have said "you're not walking so well yourself, you ought to get a wheelchair"
There are wheelchair-using mamas on MDC... I'm not trying to be oversensitive, but I do think disablism passes much more easily on this forum than, for instance, racism or sexism, and it is a pretty prevalent societal problem.
That said, that guy needs to shut his mouth! That comment of his really steamed me : .
You'd love to hear twhat I said when they all asked "is your next baby a boy too, or did you get lucky and have a girl this time?" Grrrrrr.
how 'bout " if i want bad parenting advice , i'll ask your mother" , ooohhh rude people tick me off!
I'm sorry you had to go through that. I hate when rude people decide to open their mouths and try to pass off their advice, (which, not to be too kind, but I have found most often they are of the decidedly NON-babywearing generation - that said - it doesn't make it okay, but I understand where it comes from).
When anyone says anything to me I do one of two things, depending on my mood. If it's said in a sincere, I'm-trying-to be-helpful way, I smile, and say "Thanks for the advice, but as you can see, we're both happy with our way.", or I look them up and down, and say "Oh really? What are these new-fangled "strollers" you speak of? I've never heard of them.", and then I walk off.
Why don't you just pump so you can give her a bottle while you're out?
No way - we don't *do* bottles.
Why don't you use a stroller?
We don't *do* strollers - highly inconvenient things!
You use cloth diapers? Isn't that a lot of work?
We don't *do* disposables - why would I when my washing machine works?
That's not to say that I stick to my statements 100%.....because I *do* occasionally use an umbrella stroller or a 'sposie dipe. But strangers don't need to know that, especially when making uninvited comments!
