I'm sure we've all been there at one time or another- You're out running errands and some well-meaning stranger comes up, gushing about how cute your little one is and touching them. Does it bother you and if so, how did you handle the situation?

I'm not too much of a germ freak, so strangers touching my baby didn't bother me too much but I've had a couple of people try to actually take the baby out of my arms or their carrier so they can hold them. That's where I draw the line. I hate to come off as unfriendly, but you just don't know who you can trust nowdays. :smileysad:

I am a big fan of personal space and I don't really like that too much.
