    @eecuadrado:  Before I was pregnant, I would get annoyed with pictures, but I’m at the point now where I love when people post pictures of their kids. I mean, one every hour is excessive but every day is fine with me. Honestly, if I have a problem with it, I can hide the posts or choose to block that person from my feed.

    I can never get enough pictures of babies. Especially cute ones.

    ESPECIALLY cute ones with funny facial expressions.

    @eecuadrado:  I don’t post any photos of my kids.  It’s the internet and whatever goes on there stays there forever.  If my parents posted a ton of pics of me on facebook as a baby/toddler/kid, I’d not like it.

    I think it gets annoying if it’s excessive. I don’t need to see a baby photo every single day. Especially if that is the only thing you ever post.

    Yes, the baby is cute. Yes, she’s your world. But I do want to know about YOU outside of the baby. And yes, I do want to see baby pictures, but maybe only once or twice a week?

    That said, it’s not like it would annoy me enough to think less of you. I’ll simply scroll past it if I’m tired of the pictures. Problem solved!

    @eecuadrado:  Post as much as you want. Poo Poo on the haters who cares if someone doesn’t want or like to see your baby pictures. It is your child.  And most of the haters just do not understand especially if  first time parents (we love to take picture after picture) .  I post pictures of my son quite frequently.  If you don’t like or don’t want to see pictures of him than unfriend me or hide me. I do not care because it is my FB to do as I please.

    If you’re kid does something really really stinking adorable I would like to see it. However I don’t need to see everything that they do, and ready every status update through the day- that gets you unfriended/hidden.

    I really don’t mind a few. My sister would make an album every few weeks with a good 30-70 photos in it, and people could look at it if they want, but were not bombarded with photos. I thought it was a good approach.

    That being said I wish people would actually think of their child finding these photos in years to come…. some of that is going to be down right halarious!

    @eecuadrado:  If I don’t want to see pictures of your kid, I’ll hide you from my news feed.  I have friends who will psot 100 pictures a day, but really it’s only 10 because it’s the same thing over and over, the pictures are practically identical. 

    Another friend posts pretty regularly about what her kids are doing – but her kids are hilarious and her posts actually make me bust out laughing (she needs to write a book).

    I don’t think most people mind a few pictures of your kids being adorable – the number will depend on just how adorable they are 😉

    It’s the Little Jonny is so smart, he <insert normal childhood milestone here> today.  I love seeing baby pictures, it’s the not-so-humble brag that annoys me 🙂

    I think you can take as many as you want, but personally I don’t think every photo needs to be shared on social media.  However, people can post what they want and if others don’t like it, they can simply unfollow or unfriend the person.

    I agree I like to see pictures of babies, but I just pick the best one in each situation.  I think it’s weird when someone posts five pictures of their baby in the same pose, same outfit, same angle, that are all hardly different.  It’s fine to take five, but just post the best one!  Just my opinion…

    I personally don’t post more than once a week or so, but I think it’s fine to post more.

    If someone posts more than one a week I’ll likely block them, even if it’s my cousin/nephew/grandkid whoever.

    I say post what you want. I typically “unfollow” people that do too much. I don’t have kids yet and they all kind of look the same to me. What I just really never get is the picture of a kid eating with food all over his/her face and hands and high chair. Not sure why, but it makes me want to gag. I just never really viewed it as cute, but apparently I’m in the minority because everyone loves those pictures!

    I’m kind of mixed about it.  Your really close friends and family will love to see lots of pictures but most other people won’t.  An friend/acqaintance of mine posts 100s of pictures for every month, it’s just a little ridiculous because they all look the exact same or they’re not interesting.  I’m sure her immediate family loves them, but I imagine most others don’t.

    Take as many as you want, but I would probably limit myself on how many of the same pictures I post to facebook.  If you want to put big groups of pictures, I’d probably put them up in an album once a week over uploading 10 pictures individually everyday.
