    OP how old is your baby?

    I understand what you are saying, especially if your baby is quite young.

    The first few weeks/months is like a bubble, I felt I wanted to only be with my
    micro family. My mum came to visit for 2 weeks when bub was 5 weeks old and it was way too early. I wanted her to go away and leave me alone with my baby.
    this time is just so precious.
    So that's even with my own family...

    Don't stress, things will be easier when bub will be a little older and less dependant.

    I'm still the same today and I figure I think I am being a little like this with my baby which I know is not good and I need to get over this.
    You just literally spelled out my name. When I was younger I used to dance and every year we would have a dancing concert. After the concert there would always be a big basket with lost and found items... Shoes/costumes/hair pieces etc never mine! I never even lost a bobby pin! Any hoo what I'm getting at is I'm exactly the same with my dd and her things and the way I like things done.. I've had to let go a little over time (she's 9 months) not a lot but gradually it becomes easier. I have to say though my Mil's never came unannounced that would just sh*t me to tears!! Definatly something for dh to help you out with. Good luck with it and just try to stay calm lots of hugs I honestly feel your pain although I didn't even want help from my own family at the beginning imagine how hard that was for me!!

    So MIL was over on the weekend and she ALWAYS comes around with her camera and just starts taking photos.
    SIL was holding the baby and MIL starts taking photos of them.
    I think it would just be nice if she would ask do I mind?

    Also, SIL just lets her baby loose with all my babies toys and rolling around on my babies play mat with a top covered in vomit. I don't want my babies toys covered in another babies drool and spit. I'm sorry but this makes me mad as they don't respect that I take a lot of pride and care in things and just because they don't they think its okay.
    I really don't want them around again!

    I am sorry to be harsh OP but this is about you, not them.

    Why does your child's Grandmother need to ask to take photos?...she clearly loves and is proud of her Grandchild and wants to take photos of her...this is not a bad thing.

    OK, maybe a vomit covered top is not ideal, but children and babies who visit you, will play with your child's toys, and put them in their mouth and dribble on them...that is what babies do!

    You need to loosen up

    As annoying as it would be sometimes, I think it's pretty nice that they at least care about the bubs..
    My 3 youngest have my ex's parents that couldn't care if they are alive or not.. Rubbish people they are.

    Bubs is 3 months and yeah I have just wanted it to be our little family while we are still getting used to everything.

    I keep thinking things will be easier (in law wise) when baby gets a little older, maybe?

    I think you seriously need to relax. You cant control everything. Maybe try some counselling.
    Kids put things in their mouth, its how they learn, you wont be able to stop your baby doing that as much as you hate it.
