my husband and i are both blessed and challenged by having both grandmothers live about ten minutes away from us. i am contemplating returning to work in a month and we are starting to argue about whose mother is going to watch the baby. I feel more comfortable having my mother watch the baby, he feels equally the same about his mother. i don't really care for his mother and would rather my baby not be watched by her. I dont know how to convince my husband that i feel more comfortable having my mom watch the baby. His mom has watched the baby on occassion, he feels that his family already doesn't get enough time with the baby and feels that his family has a right to watch her just as much as my family. This is such a big dilema i am contemplating staying home that way i dont have to deal with this.... I do have some concerns with his mom, she is older, fragile, and has some health issues i dont know if she is going to be able to handle an infant 8 hours a day 5 days a week, she also has a cat. I dont want cats around the baby, sorry I am allergic to cats and dont care for them. Please help!
