You gotta come see the baby, but at what point do you have to give the baby back? An upset mother posted on Reddit asking if she was in the wrong for finally snapping and demanding her mother-in-law hand the baby over for feeding time.
Hi. I'm a new mom, had my son 5 weeks ago. my husband's parents have been staying with us and things have been super overwhelming.
MIL has a habit of taking the baby and refusing to give him back to me. She'd say I'm deliberately ruining her time with him. My son needs feeding every 2hrs and she basically makes me beg her to hand him over to me so I could feed.
Where there's a familial pattern, there's a familial breaking point. It happened late one night.
last night at 10PM. MIL had my son in her arms while sitting on the couch with my husband and his dad. I was exhausted, the baby started crying. I told my MIL to hand him over to me so I could feed him.
