To be a bit miffed that people coo over my Pug puppy more than they do my newborn DD

Seriously I must have been stopped about 20 times today with people wanting to touch and cuddle Daisy Mae my puppy, I don't mind as I am socialising her , but my beautiful new born gets either totally ignored or people give a quick glance into the pram look at me as if to say oh is a baby then give puppy their full attention.

Oh well at least no-one has said Daisy Mae has my eyes or nose

Your baby must be really ugly if a pug is cuter.

<missing the point>

I think sometimes people feel uncomfortable commenting on someone else's child, even positively.

I'd lavish attention on both and you'd want me to piss off grin

How on earth do you manage a puppy and a newborn baby?!

SweepTheHalls Mon 03-Nov-14 20:37:21

Exactly the same when out walking my labradoodle grin

I love babies,but puppies are cuter.

Puppies are way cuter than babies any day!

Asleeponasunbeam with great difficulty sometimes

Puppies are cute

Babies are potatoes wink

Puppies are easier too coo over, they snuffle, sniff you and want attention.
Babies... You're lucky if you get an eye open for you.

I much prefer puppies to babies! grin

Sorry lovedy babies but find others just a pita.

Puppies now are all gorgeous. And kittens.

Sorry op. Puppy trumps your newbie. grin

Haha I have the same problem with my baby and my beagle. People always stop us on the street to tell me how cute my beagle is, less so the baby!

My mum has a vintage silver cross pram, and when she's out with it people stop to coo over the pram and ignore my incredibly adorable children angry

lol at trills

if you pet a puppy they get all happy and licky
no one dares touch a new baby in case it starts screaming at you

puppies are far more rewarding
and almost never shriek or vomit on total strangers

I would coo over a puppy, not a baby.

Princesspond Mon 03-Nov-14 21:04:18

Can you post a pic ... of your pug?

Bowlersarm Mon 03-Nov-14 21:05:16

I'm not surprised. I love puppies. Not so interested in newborns.

Bowlersarm Mon 03-Nov-14 21:06:06

Puggy puppy piccie please smile

QueenBean Mon 03-Nov-14 21:06:27

Babies all look the same until about 6 months anyway

Puppies all look different because of so many breeds. Pugs are so cute. Photo please!

People get to stroke and play with the puppy, it's unlikely that you're about to get your baby out of the pram and pass her round to strangers.

Plus, other people's puppies are cuter than other people's babies.

Celticlass2 Mon 03-Nov-14 21:08:17

Puppies are much cuter than babies. No contest.

OsloGin Mon 03-Nov-14 21:10:27

Could we have a photo of the pug puppy. Just for research purposes?
