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.

It's normal. When my mother and MIL hug our baby, she feel more comfortable. That's because our mother and MIL have more experience than us. Give yourself some months, slowly learn to communicate and carry baby. I also learn from ground zero to carry and care for our baby This requires time and daily effort, it doesn't happen overnight =)
