    But I also couldn't see why my sis let her do it.
    She was vulnerable I suppose.
    Exhausted and not in her right mind either after the birth.
    Anyway, I live here and they're all in Ireland, so a few months pass and I take a trip home.
    I got to see this woman in action.
    I can see how she would have burst in the door and took over.
    She tried to do it while I was there, and she made comments telling my sis "calm down" (she was calm) and "not to get stressed out" (she wasn't).
    Deliberately infuriating comments.
    I had to say that my sis was perfectly fine and doing a great job.
    ahh ok. that makes sense. I'd definitely think then it's up to her dh/partner to speak up and tell his mum to back off but you've said previously he was hopeless anyway in the first few weeks. makes sense but how annoying that she'd just bluster in and take an 11 day old out for the entire day!!

    It's so wrong isn't it, lolly007.
    And then to accuse her of having PND in those very early days when she was anxious of being away from her baby as any mother would.
    She did go on to have some mild PND afterwards but MIL was most likely a catalyst for that. If you're consistanyly being told you're handling everything the wrong way, you're going to start believing it.

    Her boyfriend, well they're just volatile together.
    I reallly wish she wasn't with him but for some reason she loves him.
    I've cut ties with them both at one point because of some horrible things my sister said to me regarding a miscarriage I had. I just couldn't be dealing with their stuff on top of my own at the time. When they argue they bring the whole family in to it.
    Cause friction and tension, then they make up and were all supposed to act like nothing's happened. No thanks.
    I've since made up with her but I can't be bothered with him anymore.

    sorry to hear that phony. definitely sounds as though you've made a tough but sound decision to minimize their involvement in your life. it's so hard with family isn't it, friends you can just phase out and expel from your life. it's so hard with crappy family issues.
