@kittymama426:  You can definitely duck out of this question.  Tell her you have no idea what your mom and MOH have planned and if it’s baby appropriate or if the venue will allow it and give her contact information for those two if she doesn’t have it.

Plus maybe that will politely point out that her bringing her baby might be an inconvenience for those that have slaved away planning the party.

@kittymama426: I always think people should make an exception for newborn infants, like this one. They’re not mobile, so there’s no safety issue with him or her crawling or walking around. And they’re almost impossible to get babysat, especially if the mother is breastfeeding. There’s no way I’d be able to attend without my baby, when I had a baby that age.

A nursing infant is very different from an older child, and allowing a baby doesn’t mean you need to allow older children.

You are within your rights to say no of course, but then you should expect her to decline the invite.
