I babysit my friends kids. She doesn't bath them and they smell like strong sour pee all the time. And they r ugly. I wish I didn't feel like this but I'm grossed out. I can't stand dirtiness. I knw its not their fault but I can't help it. I don't even say how cute they r I just say awwww... how do I tell her to take her kids to a doctor or something and give them baths. Cuz strong smelling pee is not normal. Its an infection in the tract. And her daughter has such a bad bad diaper rash it bleeds. And I don't even want to change them. I'm so so so grossed out by her kids

<p>
Any kind of newborn (have you ever watched mitosis?) is beautiful. Imperfections are unattractive but a baby - an innocent, new gathering of stardust into a living thing - always beautiful and awe inspiring.</p>
<p>
I have never seen a baby that has not in some way, action or look has not brought from me an "awwww"!</p>
<p>
All babies are beautiful no matter how ugly. And yes, I would lie in my omission of the features that do not attract me - I live in a glass house too, why would I throw stones?</p>
<p>
And though the sticks and stones saying says it differently - I feel that words can hurt, they can pierce through the psyche and plant themselves in our own repetition of them until we bring them into reality.</p>

<p>
I don't believe there is any such thing as an ugly baby. All babies are beautiful.</p>

<p>
i hate lying but thats why some ppl hate me lol. some babies are drop death ugly lol when there born. like my sister very ugly for the first week then she looked human yeh yeh i'm mean no jus honest</p>

<p>
Hec Yeah, may times and all I could say was oh He/she is so precious......</p>

<p>
It depends which baby you mean,it could be a baby animal,some of those are ugly!!</p>

<p>
Yes my niece, i cringed when i saw her i swollowed hard and then said "oh she is adorable" but she is now 18 and really is very attractive youg women..</p>

<p>
Yes and yes. I watched other people go and have a look, too, and will never forget their faces. happily, the baby grew into a perfectly normal looking boy.</p>

<p>
Yes I have and yes I lied and said he was beautiful....He is a very cute kid now though...If I&nbsp;have to be honest..He was so ugly that it was cute...that he was ugly...</p>

<p>
Honeslty, I think all babies are ugly. Except for me of course.</p>

<p>
yes..i did..my friend's baby...hihi</p>

<p>
Yes, no, and still limping from the kick in the ... well... still limping...</p>

<p>
Oh yes, many years ago someone brought their newborn to the house. He was the ugliest, pop-eyed, big eared child I had ever seen. When I was asked, "Isn't he adorable?" All I could say was He is nice. But he has grown into a very handsome young man. But that picture of him as a baby has remained to this day. No, all babies are not beautiful. But they can grow into beautiful swans!</p>

<p>
Yes I have. I do think ugly babies can be cute though. It's weird. They are so ugly that they become cute to me.</p>

<p>
I have never seen an ugly baby, nor and ugly person, as everyone has Beauty in some way.</p>

<p>
My dad always told me that t here was no such thing as an Ugly baby......</p>
<p>
Really what he said was...."A Baby Baboon is always cute to a MaMa Baboon......</p>
<p>
So I think he was sying that there was no such thing as an ugly baby</p>

<p>
Oh, my goodness..... I've seen some ugly babies.&nbsp; But, rather than insulting a mother or father, I always say:&nbsp; Oh my, what a great looking child, looks just like the great statesman, Winston Churchill.&nbsp; But, really all babies look like Winston Churchill, to me.&nbsp; Don't show me your baby.&nbsp; I can't do anything for your ego.</p>

When it comes to parents and their children revert to the Thumper rule "If you can't say nuthin nice, don't say nuthin at all....! There are plenty of ways to avoid comments so you don't have to lie. Avoidence can be "oh, shes so....tiny?, what a baldie huh, or how are you guys doing as new parents? (no need to add "of this ugly child") I never lie to anyone about anything- honestly

<p>
Yes I did see an ugly baby! If they say something to me like, "isn't she pretty?" but I'm thinking, ugh, horrible, then I will say, "she's so cute!" that is always my comment. Cute takes care of everything! ;)</p>

<p>
I have seen and ugly baby and no I didn't lie about it.&nbsp; It looked just like the moma.</p>

Yes! And yes I lied, he's my friends son & I'm sure he'll grow up fine......:-/

<p>
...all babies look like yoda or ET, so i'll let your mind wander as to what i think of some of em... xD</p>

<p>
Yes, and i couldn't help but think, "Who punched that baby in the face?"</p>

<p>
No, but I do tell my little ones that they're lucky they're cute, so I won't eat them.</p>

<p>
I think all babies are beautiful. That's no lie. Their innocence and fragile existence make them look so helpless. I just want to hold and love them all. That's what makes them all beautiful to me.</p>

<p>
Oh yes it looked like a monkey but when I looked a the mother I could see why.</p>

<p>
I worked in a newborn nursery for 23 1/2 years so I have lots of ugly babies</p>

<p>
I have seen and lied about it a few times.&nbsp; I saw thee ugliest baby in the store on day, the poor thing..&nbsp; He was smiling and I was baby talking ect.&nbsp; I said "what a cutie" but thinking to myself "dont put your fingers near its mouth".</p>

<p>
Yes I have seen many that would not be concidered being pretty and there was no reason to hurt some one for no reason. I have been around some of the ones that were thought to be pretty when they were borned and saw what they turned out to be. Its not whats on the outside that counts its whats in the heart that makes a person beautiful or not.</p>

<p>
Yes, and I did lie. I could never break a new parents heart and tell them how butt ugly the kid is.</p>

<p>
yeah i have and i always say nothing. no comment.&nbsp;</p>

Question1:Yes.<br />
Question2:No.<br />
Result: I don't have any friends with babies. The truth hurts.

<p>
Well yeah I have, but they were ugly in a cute way like a little monkey. Those things are best left unspoken.</p>

<p>
I have seen plenty of them. My ex<x>pressions are a big part of who I am so you can pretty much tell when I have a blank face with no smile. Cute babies make me coo and smile, I start with that baby talk, I just can't help myself.&nbsp; If someone asks me I pretend like I didn't hear them or change the subject.</p>

<p>
Just me! I hate my baby pictures, I think mom fed me lard until I was two.&nbsp;She was scared to let me get a tan cuz I would look like a roasted turkey.</p>
<p>
Lmdo, All babies a cute. till they learn how to poop!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

<p>
Thankfully no one has asked me if their baby is cute when its rather unfortunate looking, but i'm sure i'd take the root that spares the parent's feelings and tell them that their child is a cutie pie.</p>

<p>
Yep! Me!</p>

<p>
Hell yeah! And I just lied about it too! Don't be getting on my case, you know you do this too, well maybe a little...</p>

<p>
Most of us have...and few of us lie around looking at it.</p>

<p>
1. Yes: 2. No, i just withheld my remarks because my wife usually did the honors of telling how beautiful the baby was.&nbsp; Her voice would sound like a Naval attack siren as she oowed and awed and goggled over the new baby.</p>

<p>
oh yes sure...and i did lie!</p>

<p>
Some eat there young and mate.</p>

<p>
I have seen an UGLY baby.&nbsp; It was my grandson.........he had really big eyes and was very disportionate.&nbsp; Had a HUGE head that bobbled and this tiny body that looked like he never ate.</p>
<p>
Of course I lied! what do you say to your daughter that thinks that this is a beautiful baby?&nbsp;</p>
<p>
talk about a face only a MOTHER can love...............oooo.</p>

<p>
there are no ugly babies just ugly parents..............lol</p>

<p>
Oh YES!!! Seen many not so attractive babies. Some coming from attractive parents which makes my head spin. And seen beautiful babies babies come from not so attractive parents which again makes my head spin.</p>
<p>
Did I lie about it??? You bet I did!!! I told them how lucky they were. Why spoil the day.</p>

<p>
<strong>yup.&nbsp; many times.&nbsp; one was mine.&nbsp; in 1974,&nbsp;Cory was&nbsp;2 months premature.&nbsp; the pregnancy was hard, and he looked like he hadn't received any nourishment throughout the whole pregnancy.&nbsp; he was pale as a ghost, badly wrinkled with no hair on his scalp, but he face and whole body was covered with hair (called lanugo).&nbsp; he was long and skeletal.&nbsp; he barfed constantly, so he smelled sour.&nbsp; i didn't see how ugly he was.&nbsp; but people would look at him and their ex<x>pression would look shocked. they would &nbsp;tell me, "don't worry, he'll get pretty", or "he looks like a monkey!" or even "i know you must be disappointed".&nbsp; but i thought he was beautiful!&nbsp; he grew into a man with dark hair and bright green eyes, and he is the handsomest guy i know.&nbsp; this time, people agree with me!</strong></p>
<p>
<strong>btw, baby ostriches are even uglier.</strong></p>

<p>
I was rather tactful to my mother about my own baby-picture...</p>
<p>
In fact, I put in on the mantelpiece. One gets used to everything I guess.</p>

<p>
&nbsp;I have&nbsp; seen a couple of not very attractive babies and had that awkward what to say moment....."O how cute". turn and leave. They do usually grow out of it, not like they picked their parents.</p>

<p>
all babies are ugly until they're about two weeks old</p>

<p>
while some may have more hair than others, better color,smoother skin,a better shaped head, no I have not seen an ugly baby,but thats just me</p>

<p>
No but my youngest sister is very ugly so maybe one can say when she was a baby yep pretty ugly. Most babies when born if ugly grow out of it but will never lie to the parent. Just tell them that the baby is one cute kid and leave it at that.</p>

Yes, the daughter of my foster-sister was the ugliest baby I've ever seen. I didn't tell her, she was over the top happy with her new daughter. She turned out ok though, she's 17 now and not the most pretty girl, but not ugly either.
