Does your kid(s) see their fathers side of the family? aka:grandparents. if so,how often? Do the grandparents nag you that they don't get to see him/her alot, and demand to see them more? What do you say/do?
If they don't see them at all and have nothing to do with that side of the family, do you think thats hurting your child in any way? - if they are old enough to understand, does it bother them if they don't.
I am asking all of these questions because I am having issues with my boyfriends side of the family.. They do not respect or understand that we are young parents and now have our own lives to live and have our own family to take care of, and the fact that I'm breastfeeding and she doesn't like that idea either, because she can't just up and take her grandson whenever she wants. She does get to see him when we have time, don't have plans, when non of us are sick, ect. But that isn't good enough for her, but my boyfriend doesn't say/or do anything about it. And his mother keeps nagging and nagging. Even threatend to get a laywer so she could see her grandson. - It shouldn't be my job to go and talk to her, it isn't my mother thats doing it, but maybe I should be the one to do so, because then maybe the problem would get solved..
I am very stressed out and not sure what to do.. any advice will help :)
