Ive recently gone back to work since i had my daughter which is almost 2 monts old.My husband lost his job a few months ago and we've been staying with his parents and they offered to babysit so we could save money.Well suday they watched her and they didt follow my instructions at all.They didnt read to her,she didnt get tummy time and she didnt get to play with any of her toys,they were right where i left them when i got home.I left for work at 10:30 am and didnt return home until 8:40 pm and they told me she only ate 2 and 1/2 bottles the whole time i was gone which is impossible!And today their taking her to a ball game that i dont approve of but they said they wouldnt watch her unless they could take her( me and hubby work tonight).Any advice on what to do?Answer Question

Either talk to them and let them know that they are veering WAY off the path here and making you very uncomfortable OR pay for a sitter. Grandparents are gonna do things their way sometimes... but sometimes does NOT translate into "DO what you want- the way you want- no matter what I say"
I get you gotta live in their house right now and you may be compromising on some things, but you don't need to or have to compromise on IF your baby gets fed enough. Like mamaof2boys said.... NO ONE is going to do every little thing the same exact way you do or the way you want to (even a day care) - only YOU will do that. You gonna have to learn when and where to compromise and when and where to not.
Call a friend for tonight... a 2 month old baby should NOT be at a ballpark with the heat and sun beating down on her.
