I don’t really have any advice for you, but I thought I’d bump this back up to the top 🙂  Best of luck!!  I hope you are able to work something out.  Maybe he could deal with his family?

Hmm.. maybe since you don’t see them too much now, that would continue when your baby is born. That way they wouldn’t be too involved?

PS Congrats on being 8 weeks!

Honestly, your parenting will be criticized by more than just your inlaws. You need to learn to allow to let it slide.

People seem to have LOTS of opinions about everyone and how they parent their kids. It’s ridiculous, really.

In the end, what they think of your parenting is not important. They do however need to respect your method of parenting and I think it should be up to your DH to enforce this if the need ever comes up.

My IL’s are very respectful and I am blessed to have them. They do not try to interfere or judge me for the choices I make. My parents don’t judge, but I am less cmfortable with them and my DD. My mom is ok, but my dad’s home is hoarded, so I can relate to how that feels.

Hopefully they will not give you too much grief once your little one arrives. Congrats on your growing bebe 🙂
