    Basically my best friend had a baby last year and Ive not really got any other friends, neither has she shes a single mum but we rarely see each other as shes got her baby. Its all understandable but has this happened to anyone here? Losing your best friend to a baby lol? I don't know why I don't have any other friends, its my own fault. She says I don't visit her any more but every time I go all we talk about is the baby.

    I can't say this to anyone in real life as it sounds childish so Im posting on here lol Is it normal for me to be secretly annoyed of the baby:confused: Im suppose dto be his godmother lol, some godmother!

    I don't really like them really. Which is odd because I'm female & all my other female friends coo over them and want to hold them and things.

    They just irritate me with their crying and stuff.

    This isn't really a case of you not liking babies though is it? You're jealous of the fact that your friend's had one and now doesn't spend as much time with you.
    If you're that bothered, make some new friends - you've gotta face it that the baby is now her life, nothing you can do about it.

    I hated babies until about a year ago, then got strangely soppy whenever there was one around, how odd

    I don't love them but I don't hate them either. But I am not good with them that much I can say and I would prefer taking care of them when they are like 4. Before that, I don't have so much patience to deal with them.

    Thats what annoys me, I don't think im jelous just annoyed, Ive been trying to make new friends for a year, I always make acquantances (sorry about spelling) but never friends, as in you ring and ask if they are going out tonight, Ive not been out at night for a year due to being friendless. Where I work there is no one around my age neither is there anyone my age at the sports clubs I go to.

    I like them on telly. But, I don't really get the urge to cuddle them... but I also kind of want one. One that's mine!! All mine... But I accept that this will not happen for a while... if it was mine I'd want to cuddle it though. Other people's babies though... maybe it's because I feel awkward. But yeah, I like babies

    I hate babies with a passion. Cannot see the appeal to be honest.

    If a friend of mine had a baby, they'd no longer be a part of my life. It's probably really shallow, but I just can't cope with that whole 'yummy mummy' sickly sweet baby googoo gaga bullcrap. Yuck.

    I have to say that I had the same attitude as yourself towards them - I thought they were gross, just *UGH*. However, I stated volunteering in a day centre for vulnerable families and my opinion completely changed. I just adore them now and now have a complete different opinion to all children.

    Children really arent that bad, honestly!!!

    I wouldnt say i dislike them, but i'm not one to give them a cuddle and make funny noises. :p:

    However once i have given a baby a cuddle etc then i like them. hehe :rolleyes:

    But i wouldnt want to spend hours talking about them. Maybe you should just nicely tell your friend that you want to talk about something else rather than just her baby. Try and see if she can get someone else to look after her baby for a little while so the 2 of you can go out on your own for a bit.

    I'm not the biggest fan of babies, or children, myself. Whe my nephew was born I was just like "oh, looks like any other baby" while everyone else was saying how gorgeous he was. Obviously as he's gotten older he's become so, so cute and a lovely little boy. I look forward to seeing him but I'm a bit scared of him as he's the only baby I've ever known. I'm not used to little kids so have no idea how to play with them, talk to them etc. I can't do the whole baby talk thing so I end up talking to him as if he was an adult. I feel stupid for it.

    I don't like other people's kids though. They annoy me.

    I've got a 3 year old brother, and he's the best thing ever to happen to me, love him loads and did even when he was a tiny baby.
    Until recently though, I've not particularly liked babies and the idea of looking after one was horrible; that's completely changed in the past couple of months though and I keep thinking about it - damn maternal instinct! :p:

    Won't happen for a long while yet though - home and career comes first.
