why like this?
When me n husb went out for few hrs to take break, mil will take care of LO. But once we home, she will nag nag nag. But when i saw my sil (husb'sis) asked my mil to look after her LO, when my sil is back, mil didnot nag, even can smile smile updating sil of her LO' activities etc. Why different treatment sia?? Just ranting out~~~
Maybe offer to buy mil lunch or dinner or treat her with a spa retreat.
- I will be giving birth in another 5 months and my sister-in-law just found out she is pregnant too. Thus, my mother-in-law will be the one taking care of the babies. However, my MIL has stated her preference to stay with SIL instead of staying in my house. Which option is better in your opinion? 1. Get my relative, aunt who stays nearby to take care of my baby so baby can enjoy one-to-one attention. 2. Appoint a maid and share with SIL, to assist my MIL to take care of my baby and hers. My MIL has helped me to take care of my elder kid and so far I am comfortable with her.
To me ,if i have a mum i will ask my mum to take care of my baby instead of MIL. It will be hard for MIL to cope 2 babies at one go... And usually there will cause a lot of problem if you choose to put both at home. Otherwise you can look after your own child or put your baby in infant care. Or relative aunt who stays nearby if you guys are close enough.Anonymous
- Can anyone tell me why mother in law care for baby so much? My mil is one but she don't seems like care for me and my husband feeling. Before I was pregnant, we were like stranger and hardly talk eventhough we are staying under one roof. However, she started to show lot concerns after I was pregnant and typical mil dil problems arises after baby birth. Why?!!Anonymous
- My sil kept comparing my kid with animal. My child is teething right now thus he will tend to "bite" and drool, and her comment is "why do you behaving just like a dog?" When baby smile at her, she says "aiyo u smile like a monkey" or she will say "are u a dog?" She is a school teacher somemore. I jus cant understand!
Hi there. I think u can let ur sil know that u don't like it by saying like "where got like dog? My boy so cute". Tell aunty that we not not dog, we just teething only"....i don't think that she meant any harm, it could be a cute version of the animals that she is referring to (after all all the kids boooks have cute lively animals). I think no need to be too sensitive, just defuse the statements away ad after a few times, hopefully she will ge itAnonymous
