Unfortunately i don't think there's a lot you can do about it, as they're doing it for free. My Mum was the same, she would rock my kids to sleep, pick them up straight away, give into their deman...

I agree with the prev post. Tell every nurse/midwife about what your MIL intends to do and they will tell her where to go. My best friend is a midwife and she tells people where to go all the time....

jackie3 replied to topic Talking about sex with parents

I'm a teacher and we have to teach the basics of it at school, so maybe you'll get out of it! Normally teach it in Year 5 or 6, including AF, sperm, male and female reproductive systems, sperm meet...

Having had friends and family with depression and postnatal depression, i would say you should go back and see someone, even if it's just your trusted GP. It is normal to get those 'hormaonal' swin...
