maymrswinks :  At least you asked! You didn’t just dive in expecting/assuming it to be okay. There is nothing wrong with asking. Assuming, yes, asking, no.

That’s quite extreme bee! If the “skin is sensitive” thing (if you use that) doesn’t work, a straight forward, “Take your hands off me.” should send a clear and direct a message. This isn’t your average case of excited grandma, there’s a lot of bad history here and you’ve every right to protect your personal space.

It is still your body and your personal space. People are so self entitled when it comes to babies. I hate it when all of a sudden you’re some magic baby vessel and no longer considered a person. Tell her to back off. My skin is crawling just thinking about it.
