    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!

    Exactly this! DF really wants her to stay as long as she can, so I don't want to deny either of them that. I think it will be good to have someone around to do the things which will be neglected first, cleaning, washing etc, that will be fantastic.

    I have told him that he needs to listen to me if I'm getting frazzled or stressed and I know he will. And then he'll be the one who tells her we to make herself scarce, that we need some space......
