How to Avoid Baby Bump Meddlers

Baby Bump: Avoiding the Belly Rubbers

Many pregnant women get frustrated with unsolicited belly rubs. Without asking, random people pat the precious baby bump and make predictions on the gender or offer up advice on topics that are of no interest to the expectant mother.

If you're someone who wishes strangers would keep their hands to themselves, here are some pointers on how to send the patters packing:

  • Carry a handbag in front of you to hide the bump from plain view.
  • Tell them you're feeling nauseated or ill.
  • Wear sunglasses and a hat. Acting incognito keeps you from making eye contact and denies access to the meddler.

Do you have a tip to add to the list?
