    lol I really shouldn't BH after a glass of wine, 2 hours later this is already a non-issue and I'm embarrassed I posted. (Although maybe because it's just been 2 hours since DS went to bed and I've already forgotten what he smells like?)
    But I appreciate your thoughts, and taking them into consideration I think the best option is to not say anything and just push through the crying and get him washed before bed. And give him a lazy dinner so I don't have to spend as much time on that!
    We can't afford full time-childcare but I'm supposed to be putting in full time hours so I'm reluctant to sacrifice any toddler-free time as I use it to catch up on work.

    But think how people could run with it?! Would be great entertainment!

    Not necessarily. My good friend 'lends' me clothes yet I don't have the heart to tell her wearing them gives me a headache - she uses normal washing detergent (as opposed to sensitive) and my nose can literally detect the clothes 3 rooms away. After I have re-washed them. Very super annoying.

    I had this same issue with my MIL when my DS was a baby.
    I adored his newborn smell and everytime she held him, I would have to change him and bath him. Ugh! It was gross, my beautiful baby boy smelling like a middle aged woman.

    DH spoke to her and FIL and it hasn't happened again, I think she was spraying herself before she came in to our house.

    I miss that beautiful newborn smell

    Yep I would just suck it up OP, and shower him when he gets home.
    I'm glad you've decided this is the way to go.

    LOL, I don't get headaches from my mums perfume, but often if mum has been over and cuddles the cat, you can smell her perfume on her LOL. We all comment about it, you smell like Nanna LOL. What you have described reminds me of that hehe

    I'd say something. And once you work out how let me know. I'm still trying to work out how to tell mil not to wash my kids clothes at her place because I can't stand the smell!
