What if you explain to her that you are starting a “together time” at your house, and both of you turn your phones off every day when you get home EXCEPT one (choose two days?). If she asks why, just say that with a new baby you are trying to find little moments to be together with your Darling Husband that is uninterrupted by anything.

Maybe she’s felt that ‘void’ too and is trying to make up for it in the only way she knows how. Is it that difficult to make small talk with her for a few minutes? She wasn’t living with you from age 8 and up and is now realizing how much of your life she’s missed, I guess.

Her feeliings will be less hurt if you try and explain how you’d like to limit the calls than to blatantly ignore her. I like the PP’s suggestion to just tell her your new plan.
