My mother in law doesn't listen when it comes to my daughter: Advice?

My daughter is just over two months old, and this is my mother in laws very first grandchild. She doesn’t listen to anything I tell her when it comes to my daughter. She constantly buys and buys for her then brags about all this stuff she has bought for her straight to my face. She’s also a helicopter too. As soon as I walk in the door, she’s hovering over my shoulder or sticking her face right in her car seat. Or she will just take her right out of someone’s arms. How do I get the madness to stop?!

Sounds like you’re lucky to have someone who loves her so much and who buys your sweet baby a bunch of goodies. I’m sure a lot of people wish they had that

Maybe she’s just really excited to have a grandchild? Grandparents are supposed to spoil their grand babies rotten… it’s part of the cycle of life :smiley:
I would be happy that you have a mother in law that is so excited and caring for your child… appreciate the fact she’s buying her things and wants to be involved. The opposite is much worse.

Instead of complaining be grateful you have someone who loves your child that much! Not many have that privilege! Maybe speak w/her if it bothers u that much, but when it stops please don’t complain about that as well!

You don’t have to let her cross boundaries to be grateful :roll_eyes: You are the mom, remember that. The things she buys can stay at her house, if someone else is holding her tell grandma to wait her turn. Set the boundaries now or she will only get worse

She is probably excited. My mom is always telling me about the stuff she buys for my kids or my nephew and it’s because she’s happy to be getting them stuff she’s not bragging so maybe she isn’t either and it’s just coming across that way. Honestly I wouldn’t do anything about it. She just loves her and wants to spoil her and love on her. I don’t see a problem with that, but if you want her to stop you’re gonna have to talk to her about it. I always say something isn’t going to change if they don’t know what they are doing is upsetting you.
