MIL gave DD tea to drink - am I wrong to be cross!
fifi20 · 30/08/2007 10:58
MIL came to look after DD for 1 day whilst I was at work (childminder on holiday). I got home to find nappy on back to front, baby sitting in poo, and she told me that she had liked drinking her tea (DD is 9.5 months!) They stayed the weekend, and MIL had cheek to tell me I was a worrier and I should relax and go with the flow. I told her to butt out - but DH thinks I am being unreasonable...whats the opinion out there!!

hee hee!....my mum still cant get the nappy on right as its always back to front (My mum doesnt listen!!) and gives her tea too....i wouldnt worry about it but do mention about the nappy though. About the Tea, ive told my mum that i dont any to her but my mum doesnt have her that often (as she works).

Hmm - thanks everyone - I get the message - maybe I do need to chill out! I am a bit of a control freak. Its just my sister looked after her for a whole week and nothing went wrong, the childminder is fab fab fab, so I guess i am a bit spoilt. I think I am compensating for having to go to work & leave her.

nappy on back to front - who cares.
Dirty nappy - how long do you thinkK? Not great but it happens. Tea - generation thing I think I wouldn't have been happy but I would have asked for it not to happen again.
Worrier - She may be right , just ignore it.

telling you to relax sounds like good advice to me!
Disposable nappies would be easy to put on back to front to the uninitiated.
Tea hmm, well maybe not but not the end of the world, no doubt your dd will be helping herself to bit of grass and worms in the not too distant future! Poo? sh!t happens

Ah - not on the tesco ones I use!
They all have an animal on the front in the middle - maybe it should have a speech bubble coming out of its mouth saying "this is the FRONT"
Anyway, she may have done it deliberately to make me laugh - we'd just had a bump in the car and I was upset

My mum did the back to front nappy thing too.
We laughed big time over "silly Granny"
I don't think there were pictures on early disposables and there certainly weren't with terry nappies.
The poo thing happens, my mum has admitted not changing my niece's nappy (she looks after her more than my ds's) if she knows that my SIL is due to collect her in the next half hour or so but this is partly as SIL tends to breeze in and start reading the newspaper if she can get away with it for half an hour.

nappies are obviously tricky things, i was in hospital with a lady who had to call the mw cos she didnt know what to do as the nappy didnt have sticky bits (didnt realise it was velcro). dh also struggled with nappies at first. the first time he got ds dressed he put his dungarees on back to front aswell. he still has the text i sent him asking if ds dressed himself
yabu to be cross, but yanbu as this is your pfb dd, so apologising is good idea but dont feel too bad!
