@futuremrsndl:  Address the Invite to “Mr & Mrs Smith and Family”

Does your invite say on it “No Kids” anywhere? Or “Adult Only Reception” ? If those are present I would followup the invitation (or prelude the invitation) with a phone call that states they may bring their newborn.

I’d just invite it to Mr and Mrs X and then let them know personally they’re welcome to bring their child.

If FMIL is willing to cover the cost of the additional guests, then the cost includes having additional invites printed, so let her know what that would cost as well. Just tell her that you guys had already had XXX invites printed for the already planned guest list, but you’d be happy to call the printer and have more printed for her additional guests if she’d cover the cost (have her son have that conversation with her).

Deal with the table layout after you have the RSVP’s in hand. If most of them won’t show, it probably won’t be as bad as you think. 

Address the breastfeeding family as XXX, YYY and family. Let them figure it out.
