I give them dirty looks. I've always been told I have a very mean look if someone's doing something I don't approve of haha. I don't know, but it works. I'm overly protective of Lucas and if someone starts to reach for him I either take a few steps away or give them a warning look. There are a few people I know that are close to my family, that I simply do not approve of touching or holding him. I am usually the one holding Lucas when we're around those people and I simply take a few steps back or happen to need to do something in another room or give them the look.


I try to be generally friendly to others, even random people in stores, but I do not permit people who I don't know to touch Nina. I've never liked how random people feel like they have permission to just step up and touch my baby just because she's cute or is being good in a store or just because she's a baby, or whatever their reasons. If you're not good at or comfortable with giving death glares, just tell the other person to not touch your kid, or give some excuse, like they just got over a cold, or are sick, or you have to go.


I always had so many people stop me at the grocery store when the older three were babies.. I babywear the youngest and barely ever get stopped. Nobody wants to focus on a baby whose right by mommy's boobs. That's just fine with me.
