I know I'm joining a whole bunch of other infertile ladies when I say that publicly on my blog. Right? I mean, babies have taken over my Facebook. It wouldn't be bad if it were, say, just a few baby pictures came up a day. But there are a whole lot of people who post multiple photos daily. Here's my baby trying on her third outfit of the day. Here's my baby spitting up. Here's my baby growing hair. It's like, I get it. You have a baby. Congratulations. Excuse me while I try to erase this constant reminder that I can't have what you have.
Recently, I made the decision to hide some of these people from my feed. I was annoyed about having to do that, because it's not like I don't want anything to do with these old friends/new mothers. I'd like to stay current on their affairs without the baby pictures getting out of control!
And then this morning I heard something on the radio that changes everything. It's a new Google Chrome extension called "Unbaby Me" and it recognizes baby faces on Facebook and changes them into picture of animals, art and bacon. I can get on board with seeing more of these things and less of babies.

With this extension, you can still get non-baby pictures and updates from these baby over-sharers, without the copious amounts of baby pictures. I think you have to use Google Chrome for your browser (and I already do).
I haven't tried it yet, but I think I'm going to give it a whirl. Has anybody else ever heard of this? Tried it? Gonna try it?
