My in laws are buying my baby things that I wanted to buy: Am I over reacting?

I have a ten-month-old baby, and he is the first grandbaby for my in-laws, and with the holidays coming, they are buying him my first thanksgiving outfit, and also they just got him my first Christmas PJs. These don’t bother me that much, but they also got him an ornament that says my first Christmas and his name on it. Am I wrong for being so upset about this? I feel like this should be something I buy for him. They didn’t even ask before they got it. I don’t know what to do because it bothers me. I tell my husband and he just says I didn’t know what to say? I’m at my wits end with their need to be in control. Help please any advice would be GREAT

You can still buy the baby an ornament or whatever you want.

Not gonna lie. If someone buys somthing that I was going to buy then I just shrug… because honestly 1. Your saving money lol.
2. Just buy your kid somthing different with the money that wasnt spent.

That’s the way I look at it…

Just buy him what you want and put him in both? And be thankful they want to buy him things. There’s no rule that says you can only have one first outfit

Wow…seriously?? I would kill to have either one of my parents alive so that they could be excited about their grandbabies and I would love someone to buy my children things.

You can still buy one, then the baby will have two, one from his parents and one from the grandparents. It isn’t until years pass and they are no longer here that you will cherish everything they got for that baby,

It’s your choice to use them or not! They can spend to their hearts content - it’s within your control to use or not

oh honey, let them spend the money. As for any outfit, if you like it use it, if not just buy another one. But let them spend the money. really, it’s not that big of a deal. Maybe later on, they will buy him his first car & maybe college education…go with it :slight_smile:

I wouldn’t mind. Then that’s money I dont have to spend and can buy something else on them. I think it’s awesome.
