She stated that only they were to comfort him when he falls, give him his sippy, give him a bath, rock him to sleep and if there was a need that was to be met only they could do it. i feel hurt by this although probably not as much as my MIl will.

well how old is the baby? when a child is adopted a bit older they may have problems attaching to people and your bil and sil may have been told by the adoption worker that they should provide for his every need to show him that they are his parents and will be there for him for everything. after he has bonded to them well you should be able to help out but at first it is probably best that he associate comfort and needs being met to his new parents.

I believe their just doing what their being told to do by the adoption agency. Although I also think they could of explained it better to you rather than just barking out orders and not explaining to you why. Once they've had the child for a while and the toddler refers to them as mom and dad and gets into his comfort zone their wanting him to be in you'll be able to take on your roll as the Aunt. This is new to all of you ! Just have a little patience it will be OK. I just understand both sides just wait a little while and they'll come around! I just think your bil/sil could of explained it to you instead of saying that to you which made you feel horrible. Good luck and congratulations for the newest member of the family.
