Hello!

I use Oxford Advanced Learner's dictionary. I often see this sentence for some words > (sometimes disapproving)

For example:
Pamper
pamper somebody(sometimes disapproving)to take care of somebody very well and make them feel as comfortable as possible

What does that phrase (sometimes disapproving) mean?

Thank you!

    It means that people sometimes do not approve of people or things that they call "pampered". This makes sense. I probably wouldn't like a pet that I described as a "pampered pet".
