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.

Wow! You are blessed to have your MIL helping you take care of baby. I had to do everything on my own as my MIL is frail and my own mom is working. My advise is, be thankful for all that your MIL is doing right now. Use this time wisely to pick up on parenting tips from her, read self-help books and bond with baby. Don't dwell on negative thoughts and get stressed up. Baby will go through a few phases in the first year and the crying will be over soon. Our body is also going through hormonal changes and this too shall pass. Hope you'll feel better soon.
