We have a 2 1/2 yo and have a baby due in April via c-section. We have no family nearby, so everyone will have to travel here to visit. I have asked both my mom and my mother-in-law to come help at some point when the baby comes. The problem is they both want to be here when the baby is born, as well as maybe a few days before and after. To make matters worse we do not have any extra beds in our house. We only have my son's bed, but with all the change he is facing, I don't want to kick him out of his own bed. He needs some normalcy in his little life! Also, my mom wants to bring her husband, who I adore, but its just one more person I have to try to make comfortable and happy. I hope they know this is not a vacation--I will probably just boss everyone around most of the time! My husband says stop fussing about this and let them come, and they can do whatever they want. But I need to know where everyone is staying, who is helping with my son, when is everyone arriving/leaving. My mom wants to take care of my son while we are at the hospital, but so does my mother-in-law. My M-in-L knows him better, and sees him
much more often, so that is another reason my mom wants to do this. UGH! I don't know what to tell them! Please help me!
I would like my own mother to be here when the baby is born, since she didn't see my son until he was a month old. However, its a c-section and she won't be able to be in there anyway, so really it doesn't matter. I DO NOT want anyone, other than my husband, to spend the night at the hospital, like my m-in-l did when my son was born. She snored in the chair all night and looked so uncomfortable I didn't get any sleep.
Geez, just help, someone, please.

There's no way to ask this that won't make me sound racist, but bear with me.
