I really hope I am because whenever MIL is around my LO, she makes comments like "your poop stinks...," "you're looking at the bartender, i bet you'll be a bartender when you grow up..." or the other day because she saw a bit of baby butt crack when LO bent over, she told him he needs to be a plumber "because they make good money" or when he tiptoes sometimes, she calls him a sissy, and she's called him anorexic when he was just a few months old and was experimenting with stuffing his fingers in his mouth to which DH and I let her know that's wrong....
She and I get along otherwise, but she does tend to favor her daughter over my DH
I hope I'm just being an overprotective mom and am looking too much into this before I lose my mind...sigh

Those comments would irritate the crap out of me and I'd ask her to be quiet.

Remember that old saying that ALL moms tell their kids .... "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all."
I would simply remind her of that old saying ...
