So I just gave birth to my third son (via c-section)12 days ago. My mom came to visit and help out while I get better. I'm thankful for that because I know i can't take care of all 3 kids alone when I'm still not a %100 and hubby has been picking up extra hours at work... But shes driving me CRAZY! She wont let me lift a finger! Everytime i do something whether it's get a glass of water or rinse the baby's bottles, she has something negative to say!! "if I wore u I wouldn't get up from bed" or "why r u doing that?" Omg!! What am I supposed to do I'm not used to people doing stuff for me.

Relax and enjoy it.  Appreciate you have a mother that drives you nuts!  Think of all the things you can do when she leaves!  Read a book, watch a movie.  SLEEP!

Take full advantage it it.. It not going to last for ever..LOL  Look at it as a mini vacation and whatever she does that you really don't like or wouldn't do yourself, can be fixed once she gone.. Have her find you a bell to ring and lay back and enjoy it..

It sounds like she is just trying to help you and prevent you from hurting yourself. Take advantage of it cause once you heal she might not help as much. I wish i had help when i had kids besides my husband helping.
