Would you tell this friend to sod off?

This person doesn't have children (through choice) so has absolutely no experience of them, yet they've been making remarks about mine since day one.

DS (13mo) has porridge oats for breakfast, CF makes a comment about how he's going to have an upset stomach and I shouldn't be feeding him that.

DS is amusing himself with a nursery rhyme video which just so happened to be sang in German. The cartoon makes him so happy and he sits laughing at the baby in the video, completely harmless. CF says in a judgemental condescending tone "Well i don't think you should let him watch that. I think you should find him something funny in English)

DS (recent walker) has a tumble and ends up with a little bump. They give me an inquisition on how he got it and why.

DS is crying. I can't be feeding him enough he's clearly starving.

DS is sick (as are the adults in the house with a bug!) so I've obviously over fed him or given him food that's "too strong for his little tummy" angry

Those are a few examples but it's pretty much constant and has been since he was born, it's not as though I'm overreacting after a few one off comments. It winds me up like crazy and I feel like telling them to keep their comments to themselves and fuck off. My child has nothing to do with them and is a very happy, well loved little boy.

AIBU to feel so irritated by them, they're supposed to be a good friend but I could take them or leave them these days.

Leave them...life’s too short to be that frustrated.

You could always try spending time together without DS & see how it goes.

Someone needs to tell them to fuck off...

Is your friend my MIL?? This is word for word the sort of shite I had to endure day in day out. I couldn't do anything right. I have now reduced all contact to one day a year, it's as much as I can stand. HTH

I've no kids, all my friends are parents and I don't dream of advising them on anything to do with their children unless I'm asked.

So yes. Tell him to mind his own fucking business.

We intended to get DS christened and asked this friend to be a godparent as he was a dear friend of mine. The christening went on the back burner and didn't end up happening, but it's as though they have a sense of entitlement and a right to comment on everything because they were asked to be godparent.

Had I known they'd run with it to this extent I wouldn't have bothered.
