Default My sister-in-law

Drives me crazy!! But I've posted about that before here's the newest thing she's doing. When she's holding Quentin she feel his diaper and so oh you're wet but are you mommy wet or just aunt terri wet. apparently I don't change him enough to suit her, but I guess she seems to forget that her daughter had a terrible diaper rash when she was a baby that never went away and she would just let her set in soaking wet diapers all the time and never tried changeing brands. My husband told me to tell her when she can control her daughter I'll take parenting advice from her..Ok end of rant. Oh yeah and if she tells me one more time to start him on cereal I swear I might hit her (ok probably not but I'd like to) the other day someone said start him on cereal and she said oh she hasn't read that it's ok to do that anywhere so she's not going to. Ok now it's the end of rant well for now anyway...

Isn't he way too young for cereal??? Ugh, she sounds like a pain. Is there any way you can spend less time with her? And I second your husband's advice that you need to put her in her place.

Every time she says that about his diaper say "Oh, are you going to change him for me? Thanks, that's so sweet"

You can also try "Yes, that's interesting. I'll think about it" whenver she mentions the cereal.

If that fails, throw her ass out of your house. You may find it oddly satisfying.

Amen. She sounds like a pill. I'd make a comment about your child NOT having diaper rash like hers did.

I'd tell her every baby is different and that you're waiting until your baby's pediatrician tells you to start them on cereal. Granted I'm pregnant with my first, but 2 months sounds awfully early to start them on cereal.

Haven't had my baby yet, but when people give me unsolicited advice that I'm not interested in (whether because I'm pregnant, or about anything else) I generally just smile and nod, and say "that's interesting", then do my own thing anyway.

"Well then, it's a good thing he's my son and not yours!"
I hate people like that. It's always family. That passive/agressive 'advice' irritates me. If I see my sister doing something I don't agree with, I bite my tongue. They're her kids, and she's the one responsible, not me. [except for the hours of 8:30 am to 6 pm, then they're mine!]

I had people constantly trying to push cereal too early, I heard before 4 months there's higher risk of allergies, and I didn't think it was worth the risk. Plus they have that tongue reflex thing, and trying to feed them then is just a waste of food.

With Korbin he actually didn't lose his tongue reflex until like 5 or 6 months, it was a huge mess trying to feed him. I soon gave up trying to feed him a certain amount, just gave him a spoonful or 2 everyday to see if he was ready.

My MIL is a diaper changing freak!!! As we learned the hard way. My oldest had a field trip to the zoo, and I didn't know how long we would be gone, and she was watching him. We were low on diapers so we just picked up a jumbo pack of huggies on the way to drop him off and left the pack there. And in 4 hours she went through the ENTIRE pack of diapers!!!!! That would normally last us an entire week. She's the type that never wants to put a baby down, and when he got fussy (probably from exhaustion) she went down the list over and over again to get him to stop, besides of course putting him down and letting him sleep. So lesson learned when they babysit they get only the minimum amount of diapers needed with 1 or 2 to spare.

That reminds me of a time a month or two ago when my ILs came to visit. They live about 4 hours away, so DS has only seen MIL a handful of times and doesn't know her very well. We were having lunch at a restaurant, and DS was starting to get cranky. I took him outside to the terrace to try to get him settled down and happy. MIL followed us out there, and kept trying to fuss with DS as I was holding him. He looked at her and whimpered, and then sort of buried his face in my shoulder. I've never seen him do that any other time! Finally MIL backed off, and DS got cheerful again.

the first time she suggested cereal I listened and then told her we wouldn't be starting anything unitl 4 months. Thinking that would shut her up. But she just keeps saying well start him on cereal blah blah.

That is so annoying! I told one of my co-workers, who has two little ones, that my pediatrician recommended usually waiting until babies are 6 months old to start cereals. She said, "Geez, you won't get to vegetables until he's two years old." Snarky wench.

Ewwww! I'd have said, "If that's what the doctor recommends is best for my child, then that's what I will try."

Except that when you start at 6 months, you can go right to veggies, you don't have to feed your baby wallpaper paste...umm.. I mean rice cereal, because they can actually digest food at that stage.
