Is everyone's mother like this...?

I'm wondering if everyone's mother overbearing/controlling when it comes to their grandchildren?

For example:
My mom keep giving Ava all kinds of "adult" food, she chew it up but still I said no. Ava got a rash and I asked my mom for the millionth time to not feed her anything else other than her bottle and baby food, but she doesn't listen! She told me today "I raised 6 kids, I think I know what I'm doing". I told her, Ava could be allergic to the food you're given her, she saying "It's just a heat rash".

What really pissed me off this morning, I walked in the door and Ava got a Dum Dum sucker in her mouth.
Seriously, I don't want to be disrespectful & everytime I tell her I'm keeping Ava away for awhile. My mom goes ballistic, than my grandmother calls and add her two cents. They annoy me, I really want to move but I'm having a hard time selling my home :(

Anyone else mother like this?

 No, I had a FANTASTIC Mom who never gave advice, ever...unless I pried it out of her, and sometimes not even then.

If I could be only 1/4 the Grandma/MIL she was...

Oh yeah, girl.  My mom always tells me everything I am doing wrong.  It's  a normal mother thing.

No, my mom makes her opinions known but I follow up with yes, but this so my child and your grandchild.

She won't do anything she knows I'm really against. He's 3 now so it's not a big deal. Although my step dad wants to sugar him up all the time.

Why do you keep leaving her with your mother then?

Why aren't you staying during the visits, and taking her with you?

My mother was not like that. My stepmonster was...She tried to change my son's name and gave him Mountain Dew when he was a year old.

My mother tried that. I nipped it real quick.

DH mother is worse. She told me that she can do whatever she wants to my kids because she gave birth to 3 kids.

Yeah..... NO.
