?Anonymous Post? MIL issues


Hi mums

I think I just need to have a bit of a rant about things at the moment. Please no judgement, this is my first post to this group and I'm feeling so emotional and hormonal at the moment.

My partner and I have a 2 month old and things are pretty great, I'm loving life being a mummy.

I've always had a bit of a turbulent relationship with my in-laws. I get on okay with them but never felt like they like me too much. I get the odd remark from my MIL who thinks she knows best sometimes which makes me doubt my ability as a mum but I do my best just to brush those comments off so that isn't really the issue. My issue is my partners sister (age 13) who picks my baby up and carries him around like a doll and goes off to her room carrying him which makes me feel uncomfortable. She always asks my MIL if she can take him in there but I feel she should be asking me and I feel like I can't say anything. My baby usually ends up crying and my partner will go into the room to intervene but I feel my MIL should know better than to allow her daughter to be unattended with a baby, considering she has never had any exposure to a baby before and loses all interest once he is dribbly or needs his nappy changed.

For this reason, I don't want to allow my MIL to babysit so I'm avoiding date nights, etc because of this. My MIL also makes comments that they will babysit overnight and my partners sister can sleep with my son in her room which I obviously don't agree with either!

My partner doesn't understand where I'm coming from at all and just thinks I'm just whinging about his family and is naturally quick to defend them. I don't feel like I could bring this up with my MIL as she isn't the most approachable person.

Am I overreacting and just being too protective?

Thanks in advance for any advice,
A super emotional Mumma 😭
