Parents Are Resorting To Putting Signs On Their Baby's Car Seats To Keep People From Touching Them
(Breastfeeing Mama Talk/Facebook)

Babies are cute. The little bundles of joy giggle and coo, compelling people to reach out to touch them. But if they're not yours – no touchy!

Breastfeeding Mama Talk, a community for moms on Facebook, posted a picture of a sign six months ago, asking followers, "Would you put this on your baby's car seat?"


In general, most moms do not want the slimy fingers of complete strangers pinching their newborn's cheek regardless of their good intentions.

So whoever devised this sign is making it easier for moms to say back off, with a smile.

Other variations began appearing.


Some people appreciated and agreed with the signs' warning about spreading germs.


Parents shared past experiences of this kind of unwanted attention.

However, others dismissed the signs as infantile.

Andrada Cristea wrote, "Who the hell cares about your little spawn anyway, guys?!"

I never pay attention to other people's babies (I have several gorgeous ones of my own) and exactly because of this brand of hysterical, dictatorial, religious motherhood nowadays I would never intervene, not even when help is needed (ha, ha, tough luck!).
In my turn, I treat people who pay my children attention pleasantly. Yes, a pinch on the cheek is so 1940's, but the intention is to be endearing and acknowledge someone else's offspring in a welcoming and admiring way.
If the pinch happened already, no point in acting like the devil stole the world treasure or the Koran fell off the high shelf into the dustpan.
You are just being so ridiculous! Who cares about your hatched eggs again, ladies?!

Some people implied that the new generation of moms might be too sensitive.

Not everyone from older generations felt the love of strangers was okay.

The debate turned fiery.

The group's founder, Kristy Kemp, added that there is an unspoken rule about keeping one's hands to oneself.

Flu season is upon us, however, and when it comes to protecting your newborn from germs, the posted warning on a car seat or stroller could be a sign of careful parenting.

Parents, what are your thoughts?

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
