It's so hard to deal with mother in laws. I think you just have to be patient with them. Very calmly tell them you appreciate their advice. Or have your husband talk to her, have him say when we need help we will ask for it but thanks. But I can totally understand how frustrating it is to be trying to learn about your baby and have someone come swoop in and tell you what you should be doing. You'd think as a mother her self she would understand to sit back and let you try to figure it out.

You just sit her down and talk to her. You might hurt her feeling at first but if you explain to her how you feel. She might just understand.
