MIL is annoying me.
I'm getting annoyed with MIL. She has been here for almost two weeks and I feel like I'm competing with her to hold my own baby. I feel sad because I haven't had the time to bond with my newborn. If he is laying down in the pack n play and makes a little noise, she will race me over there and pick him up. When I lay him down so I can go pump, with full intention of coming back to feed him myself. She will already have him in her arms and hands extended out waiting for me to give her the bottle.
My grandparents came down to see the baby before heading back to their home state (across the country). My MIL was making comments the whole time that she wanted to hold the baby.
I understand she is excited, but I think she needs to let ME bond with my baby. I enjoy getting up in the middle of the night when he is hungry or wet. I get alone time with him. Although she has mentioned that he could stay in her room - not a chance! I can't wait till Tuesday when it will just be me, dh, and little one.
