I am having my MIL take care of my daughter since she is 2 months old while I am at work for 3-4days a week. Now she is 10 months. In these 8 months, I had a lot of stress from her. She acts like she knows everything and tells me what to do when my daughter has problems. I told her I didn’t agree with her and I believed my daughter was something else. She didn’t believe me and asked my FIL and my husband to believe in her and made me change to her way as I am a first time mom and don’t know lot of things. Well, the fact was every single time she was wrong and I was right. Sometime we have to go to the doctor to proof that I was right. It hurts me when I have to have my daughter suffer in order to proof her wrong. My daughter also has a sleep problem. Whenever she doesn’t get enough food (milk and solid) during the day, she gets up at night time every 3-4 hours just to eat. Every time my daughter is at my MIL’s care, she gets up every 3 hours just to eat at night. But under my care, my daughter can sleep 7-9 hours at night time. I keep writing out the feeding schedule and sleeping schedule for her to follow. It never works for my MIL. She said my daughter is in a different environment and she just can’t follow the schedule. I am still sleep deprive as my daughter still gets up every 3-4 hours at night to eat. Our relationship is very bad to the point we only communicate with each other about my daughter through email. She constantly changing the story when problem happen and lies to my husband and my FIL that I said something which I never had said and made up story about what the doctor said to back up her point to proof her right.
Many people tell me I should be grateful and is lucky that I have family member who love my daughter as much as me to watch my daughter. My daughter is better with family member than in day care. It’s not that I am not grateful. It’s the stress that my MIL insists to proof herself right and being so judgmental about the way I take care of my daughter. It’s also about how much control she wants regarding this new family member. I really respect her raising two children and my husband is a very good person that she raised. But it’s my turn now. I want to raise my daughter the way I want to. I still don’t know what to do with my MIL situation. I have tried to talk to her, have my husband talk to her. Nothing works. She is also good at guilt trip me and my husband, which makes me stress out more and cause us arguing. Why does MIL act like this?
