I know it shouldn't bother us, because .I know my son is adorable too, .I think it just sucks because .I go out of my way to post on everyones kids, because they are all so cute, and it sucks when you see one person that has 39 comments and you only have 4.
I just don't post pics here anymore. It solves the prob.

it's funny how anything can start to seem like a popularity contest huh? i guess i would feel kind of bad if i put pics up of my kid and no one responded. but i wouldn't feel like my kid wasn't cute cuz they all are. when i put up pics of my cat i asked everyone else to put up pics of their pets too so they could share rather than just say aw cute. i've had a few posts that i started that have fallen by the wayside pretty quick but i like to attribute that to my uniqueness rather than my lack of popularity lol. Laughing

denial! it aint just a river in egypt lol. Wink

It's not that they want 200 replies to their pictures. It's that everyone goes and looks, but only a few actually take the time to comment. After a while, it starts to feel like "why don't people think my baby's pictures are good enough to comment on?". We post the pictures because we're proud of our babies, and we like showing them off to each other. We don't post just so people can look and hit their back buttons - of course we enjoy hearing about how beautiful our children are.

That's one reason I think the forums shouldn't list the view count. It never makes anyone feel good, really.

maybe i am the only one that feels this way but i dont sit there and think oh my baby must not be good enough to comment on. if they wanna comment than thats fine but making comments like all these people looked at my baby but dont comment is just crazy i just dont understand why people have to hear that their baby is cute. if they know it already.i dont post with the mind set oh people better comment on my pictures or i am taking them down. some people just wanna lurk and thats fine.

Why do you even feel the need to make a post like this? So what if I said I'm not going to post pictures anymore because not many people comment. I couldn't care less what you or anyone else thinks about my babies. I know that they are adorable. I just don't see a point in wasting 20 minutes to post pictures when no one gives a damn anyway.

Some people like to hear that their babies are cute.. There is nothing wrong with that, so don't act like there is.

not acting like there is something wrong with wanting to hear that your babies are cute. just why get all upset about it if you dont get comments from the 200 or so lurkers

I feel the need to comment because I'm quite sure you are talking about me.
It's not really that I get upset about people not commenting and saying how adorable they are, it's just I end up wasting a lot of time to post pictures and it seems like people don't care. So why do it?

maybe the reason not as many people comment is because 10 people before them just said exactly what they were going to say. if i read a post and it's just "aw so cute" or "oh they are adorable" over and over sometimes i just don't bother commenting because i would just be repeating what everyone else said. it doesnt mean i don't agree with what everyone else said, it just seems almost pointless to say it again. you could think of it that way rather than thinking it's something negative towards you.

the reason people care is because they go out of their way to share, and if people don't comment it seems like no one here cares. some people consider the people on this forum their friends. they care about the other peoples babies and love to comment on the pictures others post, and when they don't receive the same treatment and they feel like outsiders. it has nothing to do with wanting to hear your baby is cute, or feeling insecure about your child. it has to do with feeling left out, and like people who's lives you like to hear about (because this isn't just about picture posts) and babies you love to see don't care about yours. it's not a nice feeling.

you know what i can't stand. how ...umm... no name...never posts on any topics in this forum, never comments on other people's babies, but comes here only once in a while to post pictures of her child and say how she is too busy to post and misses talking to the girls here yadda yadda. i just think it's vain to only come here once every couple of weeks to show off your child and have nothing else to do with the forum.

maybe we're all just too wrapped up in forum etiquette, but i completely understand why people would care if they only get half the comments that others get when they post pictures.

i know i get upset when people don't comment on my pictures, it's not because im insecure, but because it does take time to upload all of your pictures and then put them here and post them and then people don't even care. (i know people do care) but when you post on someone elses topic and they don't post back that's just rude in my eyes.

there are some people that could post pictures all the time and they get pages and pages of comments (not saying anything bad because its not a bad thing at all) and then the next person gets like 5, it just kinda makes you feel like poop sometimes.


all i know is im gonna be posting pictures tomorrow and i would looove some nice comments to keep my spirits up Smile

Hey Ladies...seriously?
Sorry. I was too bored to thoroughly read every post explaining why anyone needs constant reassurance that their baby is cute. But, I'm responding because I think it was a good point in the first place. C'mon, yeah- everyone thinks their own baby is amazing looking and truthfully-- some babies aren't uh... tv ad cute. No biggie. Doesn't mean they're ugly.
But really--- how about quit posting endless pics of your kid(s) if you just want to hear constant compliments and you'll save yourselves the anxiety of "maybe my baby isn't going to be a model" and you save others the annoying obligation of posting "oh wow! another cute baby--ooooh! lucky you! so adorable! great JOB!" Seriously-- no offense, it's just not a big deal. It's a health forum. We're here to help others, right? That's all I mean.
