I have 3 kids and 1 stepson, and before me and my kids came into my mans (Mike) life, his mother was the only grandparent in both of my mans and his sisters children. Now that I am here, my kids have 2 sets of grandparents. Me and Mike have a baby together and his mother can't stand the fact that she isn't the only grandparent to this baby, she gets so mad when I want to do something with my mother or stepmother. She comes over once a week and spends 2-3 nights at my house and when I say I am going with my mom she throws a fit and wants me to leave my baby with her. My mom and stepmom doesn't treat my stepson any different then they do my kids, but my mother in law Jeanie always puts my 2 kids from a previous marriage on the back burner, but her grandkids can't do anything wrong. When she first came over she would make my son sleep with his sister so she can sleep in his bed but we have put a stop to that. But she still compains about it. She is constantly telling me to quit breastfeeding so she can take Lexi home with her, she knows I wont let her because she smokes in the house. I want to keep breastfeeding at least till she turns 1, but I do get do get discurraged when she is constantly complaining about it, she keeps telling me that her kids was feed with formula & they turned out fine. I do pump & feed her from the bottle everynow and then, when I go out to the other kids ball games or go to the store. I dont know what to do about her jealousy towards my mom, Jeannie does see her way more then my mom does and I've tried to have both of them together but Jeanie wont let anyone else hold her when shes there. Please give me any advise on what to do I would appreciate it.
