Um yes, to just take him is a bit much. I wouldn't be happy with that. If she had asked, then maybe esp as she worked there. I think it is a generation thing though.
Way to much, I'd go crazy if someone I didn't know touched my daughter let alone picked her up. What a very strange thing for her to do!
Yeah that's a bit weird. I'm not over bothered when people try and stroke E's hand, happens fairly frequently, she's a little charmer. But picking her up, no I'd be a bit freaked by that.
That's very strange and I'd not be comfortable at all. An odd lady tried to tell me Ollie was 'freezing cold' one day and tried to touch him. I went a bit fishwife on her.
I'd have went ape sh1t, fine fair enough asking you for a cuddle or stroking his hand or something but lifting the baby out is just ridiculous!
That's a bit strange. I would've been annoyed too.
I'd expect people to ask first... I remember when G was about 6 months, I'd taken him swimming and some old guy took him off me in the pool! He stayed near me and was chattering away saying that he was a swimming teacher for years and it's good for them to build their confidence in the water, and that having other people hold them helps. I wasn't keen!
I wouldn't mind people holding my baby but I would expect to be asked first.
