What time were they supposed to turn up?

But what if the postman knocked at 9.15 or any other unexpected callers?

Not being harsh but if you tippy-toe around your baby's sleeping, he will never be able to sleep through ANY noise. I used to vacuum around DS's moses basket and the phone was always going off. He's sleep through an earthquake now grin

I think YAB a bit U.

Try to chill a bit smile and cherish the fact that your Mum and Dad are here to be part of their grand child's life. Sounds like they are excited smile.

Yanbu, it is rude of visitors to arrive at the wrong time - whether too early or too late.

Can you not let them look after ds while you nap?

I know how you feel.

MIL used to do this ALL the time. Result was a baby/toddler who became a very bad sleeper, jumpy and prone to wake at the slightest sound.

She used to walk in at all hours of the day and night (had a front door key) and wake him up by lifting out of his cot/pram "to play".

If I bolted the door she would ring the bell, bang on the door loud enough to wake the dead.

It is defiantly unreasonable of your mum to poke q sleeping baby! Not unreasonable to come tiptoeing in apologising for coming at the wrong time due to traffic.

Lol raspberry grin

Any gin in the house?

Next time, take your DS out in his pram if he'll sleep in that, walk to a coffee shop and have a brew and read the paper while he sleeps, they can sit in the car outside your house until you get back. After about 3-4 times of this happening, they'll learn...

What dontmind said grin

send ds out for a long walk in the pram with your parents and get some kip yourself.

Yes a bit unreasonable. Unfortunately they probably heard 9.15 and the time was ingrained in their heads without the not arriving at that time bit.

I have a similar thing with a friend whose daughter has a nut allergy. I go to the supermarket really conscientiously getting stuff without nuts but all that thinking about them means that I end up buying a bag of cashews. At least now I remember not to serve them.
