how say no to yout family members when it comes to your baby?

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

My husband's family is always doing inappropriate things with my infant and it's starting to really upset me. For instance when he was only 4 months old they gave him a celery stalk to naw on. Made me nervous, and toctop it off they didn't ask permission. I have never given my child anything other than breast milk or formula. Then at 6 months they gave him a brown a serve roll and it started to break apart in his mouth. Again, didn't ask permission. Then I told my sister in law that there were pieces in his mouth and she put her fingers in his mouth to try and get it out. She was half in the bag and could have choked. Then at 8 months my husbands bro gave him a baby carrot to chew on. I am getting so sick of them not asking my permission. If they would ask me about any of these things I'd say no! They are also unsafe with my baby. My husband's bro let my 8 month old roll off hos belly onto the floor and my baby started to cry. It's like I can't walk away bc I don't trust them. They do not pay attention. My baby fell on his face a six months bc they were being carless. They want to babysit and want to say hell no! I don't want to be rude bc they are really sweet ppl, but are just dumb and have no common sence with my baby. How do I tell them to stop things that make me uncomfortable without sounding overbearing? My husband is no help, he has started to act like he doesn't see the things they do. Like his dad's friend smoking his e-sig in front of my child. My husband said he didn't see it, but it was hard to miss. Am I being a crazy mom? Am i being over bearing? Help me ladies!!!
