I feel bad for my husband our baby looks like me ONLY
let me start by saying my husband and I have a beautiful 4 month old son. We both recogonize our incredible blessing. We have never been so happy. I am just looking to see if any one has been through this b/f either side..is there anything I can do for the following situation. My amazing husband is truly an incredible father, I mean I always imagined what a great dad he would make but to see him go beyond any expectation of mine, well I am truly a blessed wife. My situation is that our son looks like me..why is this a problem well it is not,except everywhere we go ..doctors,church,mall, strangers,friends and family all keep saying OMG he is like a mini mom..my concern is I feel as though these comments are hurtful to my husband,some friends have litterally asked my husband if he was even present for the conception of our child since he does not resmeble him at all. OK I think you get the idea, I am wondering have you been here from either side? I always say to my husband that he really has his happy and calm attitude. My husband has made a comment recently after someone's observation"gosh he looks just like his mom" my husband said to me "if I hear that one more time I'm gonna scream!" and then laughed it off. So now I know it is not just me , I just try and imagine if roles were reversed I would be sick of hearing it I must say it took him 4 months to make that comment I do not think I'd be that patient..So what do you think? Is there something I should be saying?Doing? Am I over thinking this? I'd appreciate your input.

Deep breath. First, congrats and enjoy. These are truly wonderful times. And, yes, you're overthinking it - you've got so many other things to think about these days - let this one go. You cannot control what others say, so it's wasted energy to fret over it. And people mean no harm when they say it - it comes from a good place. It's not like they're saying 'Oh man...yeah...he looks like you. Ooof." Nor can you control how your husband reacts, and it sounds like aside from a laugh-off comment - he's not thinking too much about it. And if the roles were reversed, why would it bother you, really? It's not a slight against the other parent - it's just an in the moment observation.
Funny, my husband and I were just talking about this yesterday b/c I've seen women bristle when others comment their child looks just like the dad. Why is that?
My husband and I have gotten the same thing about our daughter from day one - all the comments ("Was he involved" to she's a mini-me). We never thought (or think) much about it one way or the other. He considers it a compliment for our daughter b/c he thinks I'm pretty darn cute :)

I am with you! I don't think you are overthinking it at all. My husband an I have 3 children. And, my hubby is half hispanic - you'd think that'd give him some pull where genes are concerned! However, we have 3 golden haired children 2 of whom have blue eyes.
It is great that you are comparing their personalities! What a great thing to inherit from your father, right! Also, when our 11 year old daughter was born the nurse in the hospital handed him this blond blue-eyed baby and told him that she had his profile. I thought she was trying to be nice - but to this day it is soooo true! Even though they are different "colors", they really look alike.
I'd say look deeper - it may be a way your son crooks an eyebrow, curls his lip, or holds his head. It'll be there, you'll find something. My boys both walk like their Dad, things will be learned that will change others perceptions. It'll take time, and all that matters is if you and your husband see it! usually the family members will, too!
Congrats on the baby - enjoy him!!!

I work at a birthing center, and I see this happen alot. Usually the baby resembles one of the parents more, and I think thats a little difficult for the other parent to hear all the time BUT if your husband isnt over thinking it to much, I dont think you should be. It probably bothers him a little, because everyone has this image of their baby looking just like them, but he probably also knows its silly and that he has bonds with his son that are deeper than physical features.
As your son grows he may develop more of your husbands physical features or not but be just like your husband personality wise. Before you know it he'll be walking and people might constantly be saying " he's just like his father!". Hang in there, dont think too hard, people make lots of comments when babies arrive lol. just relax and cherish your beautiful baby and loving husband:)

I'm on the other end of your dilemma! I have a seven month old son who looks EXACTLY like my DH, and everyone mentions it. Usually I just take it in stride, but sometimes it annoys me because I'm the one who got fat, stretch marks, heartburn, costipation, etc. Either way I still think he's the most adorable baby I've ever seen, and I'm glad he's mine.
I doubt it bothers your husband as much as you think it does. He might get a little annoyed by it sometimes, but he's not going to love you or your baby any less. :)

I just wanted to say Thank you all for your comments and input, I appreciate you all taking the time to tell me some true life experiences..It has been helpful!
I will take all your advice and try not to over think it

I think your making a big deal out of nothing. Almost every baby resembles one parent more then the other, in some cases only one. So what, your husband knows the baby is his, and he should be happy since I'll assume he thinks your beautiful. What is the issue? My daughter is the exact image of me when I was little, my husband knows this and actually appreciates it. I fact she is a mini me to the point of attitude as well but when we put her baby pictures next to mine you can't tell who is who, even my mom has a problem with this, almost scary. We joke and talk about how funny it will be when she gets older cause chances are she will hate to look just like mom, just like I did when I was a pre-teen and everyone said I looked just like my mom. It is not a surprise that the baby looks more like you then him, there is nothing to do about it and it shouldn't bother you or your husband. Maybe your next child will look more like your husband. My now 2 month old son looks a lot like me still but there is definitely some of the hubby in there, he has his eyes and coloring and ears. My hope is that even though we are both intelligent that the kids get his brain and desire and passion to learn all things new.

My son was like that, but now he is 7 and has looked more like his dad the last few years. Life is too short to worry about this - just enjoy your baby. As long as your husband is ok then life is good.
ps - my son got all of my husband's smarts = for that I am really grateful!!!

In my baby pics I look like a little-girl version of my dad. In the pics wheres he's holding me we have the same eyes, grin, chin, cheeks, everything... So I've always grown up with people telling me how much I look like my dad, but recently I got a chance to see a pic of my mom in college and was really surprised to see how alike we are now that I'm older. I look alot like her at that age. We have the same shade of blue eyes and the same skin tone, same brows, black hair, lips, neck and nose.
Just say: "He gets his patient good nature from his father!" ;-)

at 4 months your baby is constantly changing - as long as he is healthy that is all that matters! how lucky that you don't seem to have anything else to worry about.

Children always look like the 2 people who conceived them
Children are a mix of 2 parents...always.They are not always 50/50,but there is always some recognizable features present from both parents.
You're child may not look anything like you're husband,but they do look SOMETHING like the father. You're husband has OBVIOUS doubts in the back of his mind. Even if you are confident that it is his child, do an easy dna test. He may tell you he doesn't want one, but....he does. If the test comes back as positive, then I guarantee you and he will be much happier.
Looking for validation on some online forum will not help him feel any better.It only shows how guilty you feel.

There was a fan walking the Ohio State concourse wearing a
, and when approached about why he bought a fake jersey he became offended because he was unaware it was fraudulent.That fan bought the jersey on Amazon.com, so he felt it was a legitimate place to purchase such a
San Diego Chargers
.Most fans are like O'Hara, though. They know that the NCAA restricts Ohio State from authorizing a jersey with a current player's name on it, but they buy them from online retailers.The most popular one is AliExpress.com, the international version of Amazon. It's an aggregator of countless independent retailers that will send consumers in the United States the product directly. It usually takes three weeks, but the product comes.
But sometimes those products are sold second-handedly on places like EBay or Amazon
San Francisco 49ers
, which is how unsuspecting consumers unaware of what's legitimate end up buying them."The people I've talked to, the majority of people know they're fake and don't care," Van Brimmer said. "That's distressing."
Impact on Ohio State
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told cleveland.com that a very small portion of the program's revenue on apparel comes from
sales. It may be smaller than he thought off hand.
sales accounted for less than one percent of Ohio State's overall apparel business the last fiscal year. That figure is down from the six-year average of 1.51 percent. Jersey sales peaked in 2011 and declined every year since until last season
Stitched NFL Patch
, but last season included special national championship product.
During the last fiscal year -- July of 2014 to June of 2015 -- Ohio State made $1.6 million on
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
, which was 0.7 percent of total apparel sales that totaled $221 million. Sales of T-Shirts, sweaters, hats, shorts, pants and things like that make up the majority. The number of jerseys may seem overwhelming at a game, but in the grand scheme of apparel, they're not the top thing purchased.But that doesn't mean the the mass counterfeit sales of
isn't a concern for Ohio State."There's a quality issue. Where was it made? How was the worker treated? There's a lot of issues involved," Van Brimmer said. "Counterfeiting is a crime."And Ohio State is having a really hard time of shutting it down. In the old days, counterfeit jerseys were made in mass in places like China and brought through a port of
into the United States in a place like New Orleans. Many times, those counterfeits were intercepted by U.S. customs agents and they never saw the secondary market.
Now those manufacturers are making and shipping those counterfeits directly to the consumer, so it's much harder for Ohio State to track and shut down. Ohio State tries to shut down every fraudulent manufacture it comes across -- places like AliExpress have fraud departments -- but most times those manufacturers pop back up under different names almost immediately.Ohio State sales are
, though. It's just hard not to notice when you go to a football game that those fakes are floating around everywhere you look, whether the fan knows it or not."From a total sales perspective, we've seen nothing but increases this year," Van Brimmer said. "It's hard to say what the impact is because things are good
. If things were in the toilet we could tell you something's going on and things are going badly."But the problem with these kind of goods is that we can't track them and we don't know how much we're losing or how many of the illegal goods are actually in the market place."

There's always been a strange cognitive dissonance about ads on uniforms. Professional sports leagues have operated for decades under the creative fiction that advertising on uniforms is some sort of infringement on aesthetic purity
, a sentiment that's as laughable as the idea that college athletes don't deserve a share of the billions they generate. The truth, of course, is that every uniform already allows advertising in the form of the manufacturer's logo
Up to 50 off low price jerseys
. (You could argue that the uniforms themselves are advertisements for the NFL Shop, and vice versa, but that's going down a symbologic rabbit hole we can leave closed for now.)
Consider a few facts: most major sports already allow advertising on their uniforms. Soccer teams around the world, including the United States
Arizona Cardinals Jersey
, proudly sport the logos of their chief sponsors. NASCAR teams and drivers are so associated with their sponsors that fans often refuse to buy competitors' brands
Carolina Panthers Jersey
. Golfers have sport the logos of high-end companies on their shirts and bags as well as their visors. Most notably for the purposes of this discussion, most teams already allow ads on practice jerseys, as you can see from these photos from the last couple days:
Plus, NFL Europe (RIP) allowed ads on uniforms
Denver Broncos Jersey
, like you can see here with Kurt Warner:
Or here in a scrum:
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver estimated that ads on NBA uniforms could bring in $100 million a year. That's money that other
New England Patriots Jersey
leagues are simply leaving on the table. Consider the fact that NFL uniforms have far more space available for ads--you could show IMAX movies on some guys' shoulder pads--and the fact that regular-season
Seattle Seahawks Jersey
games outdraw the NBA Finals ratings-wise, and you're looking at far too much cash for the NFL to turn away too much longer.
It comes down to a simple proposition
Green Bay Packers Jersey
: are you really going to stop watching the NFL because 's sporting a Dunkin' Donuts patch on one shoulder? Of course not.
One key, of course, is matching the right sponsor with the right team. The NFL will have its say in advertiser selection
Kansas City Chiefs Jersey
, to avoid some Texas offramp strip club sponsoring the Cowboys or some Bay-area pawn shop hooking up with the Raiders. You'll be looking at multi-year agreements; this won't be like NASCAR, where advertisers can switch from week to week and certain unfortunate cars might run without ads at all
Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey
. Dozens of companies are willing to spend millions for 30 seconds of Super Bowl ad time; you think there won't be a line out the door to buy three hours' worth?
So, yes, ads are coming to
Wholesale Jerseys 2016
uniforms. Maybe not next year, but soon, and for the rest of our viewing lives. At least we can take heart in the fact that we won't be watching, say, the Citibank Giants play the Coca-Cola Falcons. Yet.

I think you shouldn't feel so bad about it: it's not your fault that you have stronger genes than your husband! And after such cases as this they say that
babies most often look like their fathers
