For our second baby we had my IL's stay. Sometimes we have a rocky relationship, sometimes all is good. You never know what you're going to get etc.
DH & I were dead against ANYONE staying, visiting immediately etc.
Bub decided to be born 5wks early & the IL's stayed until he was 2wks old. It was so helpful! We thought we'd hate it, but they were helpful, supportive & that extra set of hands to allow me some extra hrs sleep & get things done. It was good!
