Gives me Rage.
That is all .
AIBU , It just seems wrong . Was in a shop yesterday, a lady had a new born in a pram (sucker for babies I am so smiled at her, she smiled back) I asked if baby was a boy or girl (had a nice cool cotton lemon thing on) "Oh, this is a Little Woman"> WTF/

Lol, I'll happily confess to using "little man" all the time, but as an endearment rather than a descriptive term IYSWIM (as in, I wouldn't describe a baby to someone else as a little man as in the op, but might use it to a baby/toddler in the same way as "sweetheart").

I call DS2 'little man' and he's 15 - I'm guessing I'm committing the 'fauxest' faux pas on mumsnet! I think I occasionally call DS1 'little man' too (and he's 17 and 6' 1"). I wouldn't use the term to describe them to someone else though - that would just be weird! They don't seem to mind!
