Animosity towards InLaws

Dont get me wrong, I love my in laws and they are always very generous and kind. But for some reason, I have this animosity towards them, especially my Dad-IL. I havent been able to figure out why. Maybe sometimes I feel like they are trying to take my baby away? But I dont even see them that often! Anybody else experience this? I would never tell them or my DH I feel like this.

  • I understand exactly how you feel my baby is 4 months. I and i know what you mean i hate being around them and watching them hold my baby it makes me mad. And for no reason they are nice to him and me.

  • I felt this way too after my baby was born. My mil was a friend to me b4 I got pregnant, then everything changed. Maybe it's just that "momma bear" thing we new mothers tend to feel?
