    <h4>nicole.segan.1:  Your brother and SIL are being ridiculous. There is no role that a 4 month old baby can fulfill at a wedding.</h4>

    Is your SIL a BM? I’m not clear when you said “our 3 girls” if you meant your children or your BM’s.

    She wants a little girl to carry a 4-month old baby?  Holding makes sense… but if the girls are 7 yo or younger, I wouldn’t want my child to be carried more than a few steps.  Maybe because I’ve never been a mother of a newborn…

    nicole.segan.1:  There is nothing worse than a family member trying to make a wedding all about them.  I had cousins that decided a wedding would be the perfect place to introduce their child to the family.  My school of thought….. if you want people to meet your child then throw a party…. it is beyond tacky to turn someone’s special day into a baby meet and greet……….

    Not sure how an 8 month old is supposed to carry a 4 month old….

     

    Edit – just saw your edited post – what are they supposed to do with the baby while they are participating in the wedding?

    You aren’t being selfish. It’s your day! You are inviting people to celebrate your marriage to your SO, not her 4mo baby she’s been hiding away. If she wants to make a big show, she needs to do it on her own time and her own dime. (That rhymed!)

    Your brother and SIL need to get a grip – immediately. Refuse to acknowledge their asinine “request”. A baby in a wedding party, good grief.

    nicole.segan.1:  That sounds like a good solution!  Not a 4 year old trying to haul a baby down the aisle.  Are your parents going to be holding your babies too?

    nicole.segan.1:  she is being absolutely ridiculous and is trying to make this her “new baby debut” and its not right. 

    Stand your ground, and don’t let the baby be in the wedding. I am all for kids being the wedding, but not babies, especially newborns. They should be with the mother.
