    No, I wouldn't. Simply because there is literally to no reason to say that. What does telling someone a baby is ugly accomplish? Its best to keep your opinion to yourself.

    Noooo! Why would I do that Thats just mean! Or well, maybe only if I don't like them very much and they fish compliments about their baby all the time or shove the pictures or the baby in my face at every opportunity.

    Maybe in hindsight, looking back at baby pictures, we could laugh at it together, but if the baby was right there in front of me, I'd be simultaneously insulting the baby, and the parents who birthed the little ogre. That's a solid 3 people now mad at me because I blurted out something stupid.

    I think all babies are ugly little monsters. I wouldn't be honest about it though.

    For one of my cousins newborns I made the mistake of commenting that he looked a lot like a Gremlin (from the movies). She was seriously unimpressed. I didn't mean it to sound as insulting as she took it - was meant to be more of a joke because he was so wrinkled and looked super grumpy (was just a few days old). In hindsight I can see how it was taken the wrong way. Must keep mouth closed.

    Unless I knew the person well enough for us to joke about such stuff, what other reason would I ever have to tell someone their baby was ugly?

    I won't tell someone "YOUR baby is ugly". But I would tell someone that all babies are ugly should he/she ask me what do I think about them.

    Well it isn't about you blurting out "hey what an ugly kid!" But more like sugar coating your opinion or just lying if asked.
    When someone is fat/chubby for example and they ask you, if they look fat people generally tell the truth? i think.
    But people do feel the need to lie about babies if they don't find them to look cute or pretty

    Well... I find pretty much all babies to be ugly. They look like aliens. But no, I won't say that, unless I know the parents very well so I can "joke" about it without them taking it seriously.
    The world is full of evil and lies and pain and death, and you can't hide from it... You can only face it. The question is, when you do, how do you respond? Who do you become?

    bias pictures are bias

    If the picture of the 3rd baby was of the quality of the other 2, it might be a bit harder of a question.

    OT though:

    If it was a very close friend, I'd probably tell them. As for people that I don't know, or only keep at "arms distance," no. I wouldn't tell them they had an ugly kid.

    No, why would I? I wouldn't call a grown up person ugly, so I don't see why I would with babies.. just because they can't understand me?

    The baby will grow up pretty and/or handsome if you voice your opinions. Thats why its always important to voice your opinions!

    Nope.
    Wouldn't do anyone any good, however; It would make the parents of said baby think you're an ass. If you critizise people for things they either don't want to change, or can't change, they'll just get sad or angry with you.

    This thread made me laugh so hard! As evil as I am I would not tell someone that their baby is ugly. I don't find babies to be cute anyways

    Anyhoo, I'll just leave this video here, I can't believe no one has posted it yet!!!

    I would say just that. Most of the time there's a way to be at once honest and tactful; that's what we call "diplomacy".

    Every time I look in the mirror.

    edit: lol thought it read "body".

    No I won't tell some one that their baby is ugly because it is a moot point to make.
    this is my signature... jealous?
