I am interested to hear your thoughts on this. This is very new to me. How do you feel when random strangers touch your baby or get too close? Have you dealt with that? Thought about it? Even care?
DH and I were discussing this today. We agree it is awkward and a no no, but don't want to offend, yet feel Tate comes before a strangers' feelings.
We were on a flight home last week with our son lying across our legs and the guy in the row in front of us reached through the seats and touched my son's face (8.5 months). When I was walking into church last month with my son in my arms, a man standing in the doorway reached for my son's face (maybe his cheeks are too cute?). That same man grabbed his shoulders while I was seated. Finally, today at the grocery store, I stepped to the side of my shopping cart, and a lady approached him very closely and held on to his feet dangling from the cart seat.
A lot of friendly, harmless people out there, but I don't want my son being touched, especially his face. Admire him from afar, people! Thoughts?
