This is a rant post, absolutely, just to warn everyone. I absolutely HATE my mother in law. She’s staying with us for 3 weeks, I’m on day 4 and I’m DONE with her. I’m ready to send her back home to Poland asap.
I breastfeed my 2 week old exclusively and started pumping about a week ago to supplement with a bottle or 2 for when i go out for a bit, so hubby can bottlefeed her when I need to go out. I had 3 bottles in the fridge ready to go as I had plans to go out to some stores and to run some errands. Mil hovers over me everytime i feed my daughter and demands to hold her in her shrill voice all the time, but that’s another story. I said I’m going to go into the shower quick, call me out when Dirty Delete wakes up to feed and I’ll come out . Lo and behold I come out of the shower and hubby is warming the second bottle of milk for Dirty Delete, while Mother-In-Law sits feeding her. I am LIVID. I lose it, telling them both that I didn’t pump for them to use the bottles while I’m right there at home. Mother-In-Law wants to control everything and it’s really pissing me off. They overfed the baby/fed too quickly, she’s spitting up everywhere, throwing a fit , and dumped half a bottle of milk out. Now I have one bottle left and can’t leave until I repump, but I’m sitting here bf my baby again because she threw everything up before.
I don’t care that my Mother-In-Law saw me snap,.and I’m done being so nice to her. Ever since she came here she’s told me I can’t eat any spices, no salt, no pepper, no morning coffee, no mushrooms, onions, no chocolate , etc etc. She comments on everything I eat with “the babies stomach will hurt if you eat that”. B**CH NO IT WONT. I ate EVERYTHING before she came and baby is 100% fine with pooping, no tummy issues, gas, etc.
There’s so much more but i had to vent, sorry.
Darling Husband knows how I feel and what I think, i let him know yesterday and today that this is the last time she’s coming for so long to stay with us. I was all for letting her bond with her granddaughter, happy to do it , but her meddling, controlling, neurotic personality is really driving me crazy.
Please tell me I’m not the only one with a Mother-In-Law from hell.
** Oh the little fun facts from her: car seats make disabled children, why can’t Dirty Delete just lay on the back seat?
** She read articles (so it must be true!) That vaccinating babies and children is bad so why vaccinate the baby?
** Baby’s hiccups are from having her not covered by a blanket. So it’s so hot at our place right now and Mother-In-Law is constantly covering the baby with thick blankets, making baby cry and kick the blanket off. Each. Time.
** Mother-In-Law PUTS THE BABY TO SLEEP ON HER CHANGING TABLE PAD. I keep telling her DONT PUT HER TO SLEEP THERE, it’s not safe, she has a bassinette. But I’m talking to a wall.
** Puts a diaper on baby’s face to “calm her”. I take it off right away.
Just some of the fun I’m dealing with.
