We couldn’t care less about seeing your baby photos, say two thirds of Brits

They are notoriously hard to avoid and are often met with fixed, polite smiles. And now a survey has confirmed what many have long suspected.

More than half of men and women could not care less about seeing your baby photos.

The question was posed by YouGov as part of its daily series of questions answered online by several thousand members of the public: Generally speaking, how do you feel about being shown recent photos of a friend or family member’s baby?

Almost 40 per cent admitted they had no burning desire to study snaps of someone else’s little bundle of joy, expressing no like or dislike.

Some ten percent said they disliked it and a similar number said they hated it.

On the other side, around a quarter of more than 4,200 respondents admitted they did like looking at baby photos while ten per cent went as far as to say they loved it. Men tended to express the most negativity towards the pastime, while more women were in favour.

Ben Glanville, Head of YouGov Omnibus UK, said: “Our survey reveals a difference in enthusiasm between genders when it comes to being shown baby photos.

“Almost half of women either like or love it, compared to just 22 per cent of men. Similarly, 26 per cent of men either dislike or hate looking at baby photos, against 15 per cent of women.”
