baby stop carrying when mil carry

Dear mummies My mil and i are taking care of baby together. I am currently on ML. It hurts me that baby stop crying when my mil carry and crylike murder when i carry. I feel jealous toward my mil and even a tinge of hate toward baby for stop crying when my mil carry. I sometime secretly hope that baby cry when my mil carry so that i knows baby cry cause of some other reason rather than just want to be attached to my mil. It doesnt feel right to me as a mum that baby seek comfort with my mil and not from his own mum How do i handle this emotion? This is so wrong and unhealthy.

Pls don't be too upset...perhaps it is because your MIL is experienced enough and she is calm and babies are sensitive to such things...in time you will also be experienced just enjoy the "free" moments for now 💕

After feeding by my wife. We let in laws carry because baby will not develop dependence on mummy alone. It is ok to let other carry.

Well.. It happens. But your work load is easier right? Then think positive!
