My MIL and I get along really well, we've never had problems before. But, now that I am a mom she's starting to drive me crazy.
We see at least twice a week. Every time we're with her and the baby starts crying she says, "Oh poor baby, what is mommy doing to you?", as if I'm beating the baby up instead of trying to soothe her. And, if the baby doesn't stop crying right away my MIL will come over and say, "I'll calm her down", and she takes her out of my arms! It really makes me feel as if she thinks I'm a bad mom! She seems to think I am incapable of caring for my child. And, I'm not the type of mom that gets annoyed, or frustrated when my daughter cries. If she's crying I'll talk calmly to her, or rock her, or whatever, I never get upset or anything.
I talked to my husband about how this hurts my feelings and he just chalks it up to his mom loving our daughter and wanting to love on her.
Am I being too sensitive? Any advice?
