      Been an ongoing debate in my family... do ugly babies exist? Some say no, it is a myth like Big Foot and Nessie but others, myself included, are believers.

      Case... a friend back east has a baby that I have yet to meet. On FB he looks... unfortunate. I asked my other very honest friend about this and he said 'lets just say, its not the camera's fault'.

      I'm just a regular Joe, with a regular job. I'm your average white, suburbanite slob.

      Oh they exist all right. My wife and I feel there are 3 types of babies...

      1) cute "gerber" babies
      2) Little Old Man babies (babies that look like little old men, but are still cute)
      3) Ugly babies.

      A friend of ours (that we see all the time) had a an ugly baby, and my God, it was awkward. The good news is that he grew out of it, but sweet jeebus he was rough for about a good year and a half.

      Oh, absolutely they do. I'd go even so far as to say "fugly" but what do you say to a friend who is so proud of their ugly baby?

      Are you kidding me? There are hideous babies out there. What tops it is when the kid is ugly and the parents dress the kid like a moron. Ugly kids are annoying.

      IMO most babies are ugly. My son was monstrous for about 2 months. It's also my opinion that many grow out of it.

      My daughter was a gorgeous baby and we knew it. My son looked like the monster from Goonies. And we knew it. People were like "OOOHHHH! He's sooooo cute!!!". We'd respond with "Really? You really think he's cute? We're just hoping he has a good personality".

      Luckily, by age one he'd grown out of it and actually looked something between cute and average.

      our first daughter looked like a 90 year old man, but we kept convincing ourselves how pretty she was. Then at about 6 months she actually started turning beautiful and we were like, what the hell were we thinking before?

      I agree that most infants are ugly and many of them start to change at 6-12 months.

      They definitely exist. I am fortunate in that both of my daughters are the cute pudgy gerber-type. Our good friends had an ugly baby, and they called him wrinkle man for about two months till he started to grow out of it. Haha

      All babies are ugly, no exceptions. It's just evolution that makes parents think they are to ensure perpetuation of the species so they don't abandon the baby or use it as bait/distraction for the hyenas while they make their escape.

      I have two beautiful children, and yes, they were ugly babies. The uglyness takes 6 to 12 months to dissipate.

      They exist. Fortunately my son turned out great. If he didn't, I'd admit it. He's 2 and gets a ton of attention and would be a great tool to pick up women.

      He's a toddler and not a baby. You are delusion; he was damn ugly as a baby too!

      Evidence, your Honor! Before everyone gets their panties in a bunch, I didn't mention which ones were ugly. If you just got defensive, that's all on you.

      My girls were bald for a few years. It cracked me up deadpanning to people saying "He's so cute!" with "That's a girl, can't you see the PINK EVERYTHING?!"

      I'd like to add that I realize this is a good-natured thread

      I work with kids, I spend 10 hours a day as the legal custodian of 65 kiddos from K-8 ...I speak from experience that there are ug babies, but also as they age you start to say "poor thing" when it becomes obvious that a few are just plain under par with what the world they are going to enter into considers attractive. Funny how a lot of the time the "homely" looking kids develope amazing senses of humor or personalities that make it obvious that being unattractive just won't matter

      I don't know how, but I think my daughter was a super cute baby, people would tell us all the time how pretty she was. (could be lying I guess )

      She's a toddler now, but still doesn't have any hair though. She may never grow any.

      Babies can definitely be ugly, but I think it's impossible for a baby's parents to see it. My wife and I were convinced that our first daughter was absolutely, positively, the most adorable baby ever to have graced our Earth.

      Now when we look at her 0-9 months old pictures we're just . The gentlest way we can put it is she looked like an alien - big head, scrawny neck, etc.:




      Fortunately, she has grown into a gorgeous little girl:
