Yeah, I never knew how infuriating the TV ads wuold be unti lI had a babe of my own! I totaly agree with AP and it is working for me and my family.
I just CAN'T STAND to see babies crying all the time when I am out.
Their parents simply ignore them or yell at them! I was at Target today with my baby in the sling and we were looking at the toys. TWO MAMAS of two different babies said something like "Oh, I just loved my baby when she was your age...Now she's a monster!" Their babies were about two years old and perfectly aware of what their Mommy was saying. I felt so bad for them...Grrr...

just a thought...

Of course I try not to pass judgement as well becasue we all have bad days...I just felt so sorry for these children becasue the way their moms looked at them was with such annoyyance and almost disgust. It just makes me wonder why they had a baby in the first place...I didn't mean anything by my previous post...
