my mother in law is driving me nuts! everytime me, my husband, and Savannah [my daughter] are around my inlaws, my mother in law totally takes over with her, its almost like if i wasnt breatsfeeding, id get cut out completely. and when i eventually go back to work, my mother in law will be watching Savannah 2 days a week and i'm afraid that she is gonna totally take on "being mom" when i'm not there, and do things i dont want her doing. she's never breast fed any of her 4 children, so she is always dropping a hint that i should pump before i come over so i dont have to run to the bedroom to feed the baby every 2 hours. and she dropped another hint one night when my daughter was kinda cranky that i should pump a bottle and add BABY CEREAL to my daughters bottle at night! my daughter is 6 WEEKS old! so needless to say i dont listen to her when it comes to her when she gives dumb advice. ugh! Last night was my father in law's birthday, the baby got hungry before dinner so i excused myself and when to the bathroom to feed the baby. after i was done i took a few minutes to let the baby drift off to sleep, and in comes my MIL "just checking on me" but in the mean time takes the baby from me "so i can go order my didner" well when we get back to the table my daughetr is crying and its all i can do not to loose my cool. my husband eventually takes the baby and she drifts right off to sleep, but i was pissed off the entire night. she just barges her way in when i dont need her nd it pisses me off. i dont know how to approuch her about it though, my sister in law has the same issue with her when it came to her son but she approuches it by being rude and mean, and im afraid that if i say something she's gonna think i'm being like her. so im stuck. i'm to the point where i'm about done with just being the wet nurse when i go to their house. as far as im conserned I AM Savannah mother! period. she is her grandmother so where does she come off taking over my role? she had 4 chances to be "mom" her role now is "grandma" so stick with it!
