Why would your MIL have your kid? And if you all live together I am really confused on what you mean about taking her away!

YOu need to claim your child back to heck with her feelings.  You should have been doing all the things MIL is doing from the start unless you were physically unable to.  She can still bond with the child doing grandmother things not mother things.

There would never be a day, anyone would be more of a parent than me to my own child. Take iniative, if your daughter needs a bath give her one. If it is breakfast time, make breakfast. She is your kid, you do the work. Also, ya'all need to move out. It is nice your in-laws have let you stay there, but it has been a year and a half. You should of saved enough, or found good enough jobs to support yourselves by now. Good luck!

Move her crib upstairs with you and you take care of her. Why did MIL start doing everything in the first place?

I don't understand why your dh is resistant to you being the "mum" and not his mum. I would not let this go on for another day.

Initially, why did you let your Mil take over?

I don't understand how you gave over mothering duties and privileges to your MIL over your child. I could never do that. If I did I'd demand them back immediately.
