My son was born 6 weeks early as I had pre-eclamsia he weighed 4lb 14. He had to stay in special care unit for 2 weeks and when he came home he was still only 4lb15, since then whenever I am out with him people ask how old he is and always say that he's really small for his age. I t's really beginning to annoy me and my boyfriend, i feel like asking people how old they are and when they respond telling them they're short, fat, thin etc. He's now 5 months old and its still happening.
Also I am getting increasingly annoyed by people who think its acceptable to tickle his cheeks or touch him in any way. When did it become acceptable in society to walk up to a complete stranger and invade their personal space?
Friends and relatives say I should be flattered that people want to talk about him as he is really beautiful(even if I am bias!)
I was just wondering if there are other mum's out there who feel the same or am I taking it to heart too much?
