Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria (::" Thank you. I know, and everyone said that from the start. So it hurts even more that they'd go behind ... [snip!] ... different developmental levels, the older boy has autism; they are ALWAYS compared. I don't want this to continue forever."
Quoting Veronica_Lynn:" Did you remind her that your baby was born at 35 weeks and the other one was born on time? Laugh at their ignorance. They don't know what they're talking about."Doesn't matter I guess. The 37 month old I talked about it a previous comment, was 36w 3d, and they still seem to compare him even though on top of being early they know he's slower.
Quoting Love = Moco and Bubba:" My boys both born full term have completely different developmental patterns. My baby is almost 6 months ... [snip!] ... date at 40 weeks. So it just goes to show all babies develop differently. Especially when you had a baby born 4 weeks early! "Wow, exactly. And apparently K's oldest could barely sit up by a year, because his legs were short or something? (SO's mom is the one who said this) So I would think she'd understand, like you said especially since my DD is a preemie.
Quoting Mrs Mia Wallace:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Veronica_Lynn:</b>" Did you remind her that your baby was born ... [snip!] .. live and wasn't even supposed to have been born. I use the opportunity to educate them about preemies and what they go through."Oh wow, poor baby I'm sorry that they do that. She doesn't appear to be a preemie, she's huge but I know that means nothing about her brain development.
Quoting whitney ♥ ainsley:" My SO's sister was like that, and her son is 4 months younger. Everything was a competition with her ... [snip!] ... with her and it got old fast. I just ignored it and eventually it did stop, but it's really annoying to listen to. "I know I need to try and ignore it. It's just hard when I just want to defend my daughter. But I know she'll develop at her own rate and that's perfectly fine. I just hope it stops before they can understand what everyone's saying.
Quoting NatashaHarper:" There's being proud of your baby then there's being a jerk and gloating unnecessarily. I have no issues ... [snip!] ... feel! Sorry mama and I hope it gets better for you! Just remember that your baby is amazing, screw what everyone has to say "
Quoting Jamie & Baby Aria (::" I know, it upsets me too; its one thing when she tells me to my face-that can be irritating enough. ... [snip!] ... their blood, my nephews aren't even blood and I don't try to compare anyone. I just love them for who they are. Thank you "
Quoting Naomi Wheatley:" I feel your frustration.When my daughter was a baby she had a cousin 4 months older then her and her ... [snip!] ... you because it's really not worth getting upset about,your babys a surviviour and thats more to be proud about then anything.x"
