My husband and I are due our first baby in about 10 weeks. I’m a high risk pregnancy and she will be born early to avoid unnecessary risks. We have a blanket rule of no visitors for 2 weeks as that’s the only time husband has off work and I want to settle into breastfeeding without a revolving door of visitors.
We have made this abundantly clear to anyone and everyone. My MIL seems to think she was exempt from this rule and when my husband enforced the fact it’s for everyone she said she wants nothing to do with us.
I’m absolutely fine with that as this is just the latest of a string of bullshit from her entitled ass but my husband feels like he needs to resolve it. I don’t know how to support him when I have so much dislike for someone and want to protect my baby from her.
I dread to think how she will react when when she’s told the other ground rules eg no kissing, hand baby back as soon as she gets grizzly. None of his family really understand the realities of breastfeeding but that’s a whole different battle
