I don't know what to do anymore. I'm having a hard time with my SO's mother. She is always holding the baby and won't really let us do anything. Every time I try and talk to my SO about it or how it bothers me he says I'm being over protective of her. There also trying to convince me to move in with him. So that way he can be there to help more. But he still lives at home to and I told him I didn't wan to live with his parents and he asked why and I said because his mom doesn't really let us be parents and he said I guess. Which is true every time I try do something whether it be a diaper change or feed her his mom is right there taking her away from me or him. Especially when its time to put her to sleep, his mom will take her and do it. The first time I stayed he said he was going to take care of her. So I went to his room to lay down and try and rest and then he came in there a few minutes after and his mom had her for most of the time. My mom isn't even that bad. The only time she really takes the baby is if I can't get her calm or so I can make her bottle or so I can shower. *sigh* I just don't know =( I don't want to keep it all bottled up and end up exploding on him or taking it out on my daughter but he is like a momma's boy. He gives her everything she wants on a silver platter. It upsets me because he is about to be 29 and still acting like that. So how do I talk to him about this without upsetting him?
Also this is both our parents first grandchild. So I can understand there excited and want to help since we are new parents. But how are we suppose to learn if she keeps butting in? I mean before I pull up their house she is already out the door trying to get the baby. I was surprised she let me dress my daughter the other day after she gave her a bath or even feed her but after I fed her, she fell asleep and his mom wanted to take her away from em and put her in her crib. And she is constantly wanting to hold her. My daughter is only 19 days old and I don't want her to get in the habit where she has to be held all the time, but it doesn't seem to be working because whenever I do have the baby in her crib or swing and she makes the slightest noise his mom is right there picking her up and then holding her for hours. I personally talked to her about that so now what she does it put a pillow on her lap and still keeps the baby by her.
I guess it makes me irritated because once we finally told his parents I was pregnant she wanted a paternity test to see if it was really his and now she doesn't and wants to all kinds of things for our daughter.Answer Question
