My husbands mother is about to drive me bonkers! My daughter gets overstimulated very easily and when I bring her over to my mother-in-laws house she wants to get in my daughters face and speak nonsense constantly. I've told her multiple times to please let her be so she can sleep but my MIL doesn't listen and continues to play with her. My daughter is 3 weeks old and can't handle that much at once. Every time I finally get her calmed down my in-laws get her all worked up again. My husband doesn't understand since he's not the one having to calm her down every 20 mins. When she gets worked up all she wants is mom. She wants to comfort nurse for hours on end until we get home. My husband is on his mothers side of course. How can I get everyone to understand that she needs to left alone sometimes and that unless everyone can respect my wishes then I won't be bringing her over anymore. She might be their granddaughter but she's MY daughter first and that I will make the final decision when it comes to her.
