ever heard this words before? have somebody said that your baby doesn't look like you? or the baby's beautiful, good thing she/he doesn't look like you. or perhaps, the baby must be adopted or maybe he not the father of the baby. do you get mad? how do you feel about it?

This topic is not applicable to me, I am not married yet. But these type of offensive talk would arouse anyone. Even when I read this I am getting frustrated, if someone told me this I would give him a nice slap on his face, that is really touching our ego.

I havn't had my daughter yet but I don't think it would bother me if someone thought she was adopted. Who cares? Either way she is my child. It is also perfectly normal and natural for a child to not look like one or both of the parents, especially as a child. Growing up I didn't look like my mother, now I do though. It wouldn't really bother me if someone wanted to say that my baby isn't my husband's...we both know that she is and that is all that matters.

I would tell them to mind their own gossiping business. I would then explain that not all kids unlike themselves and their kids, had to question the identity of their father.

This actually doesnt trouble me at all. What i generally say is im happy our children dont look like either of us, i wouldnt want to condem a child to a lifetime of my looks lol. No, in seriousness it should only be a problem if you have doubts about the parentage of your children. By the grace of god, we have no doubts blessed be

I think that would be increadibly rude! How aweful for someone to tell anyone that the baby is luckey not to look like their parents! Im lucky my son looks like me, but his coloring is his fathers. But still its terrible thing to say. I would be offended and probably come back with a rude reply. Or even something like oh i found the baby on the sidewalk. But im easily offended like that.

People only say things like this as a joke, and most people would take it that way. If someone really thought that they would not say it to your face only behind your back so you would not be hurt. All babies are beautiful and sometimes people will comment where does the baby get it from - not your guys - or even 'thank god the baby doesn't take after you 2' but they only mean it in fun - sort of teasing - and would never say it if they thought for one second the parents believed it or would be hurt by it.
