Keeping mum-in-law at bay while consoling my darling

I kept my mum-in-law from wrestling my darling from me not once, not twice, but thrice, while I was trying to put her to sleep in my arms.

She has done that for close to two months now, ever since my girl is born. This, I feel, is a prelude to a certain type of dependency on a single caretaker whose style is potentially one of over-pampering. The millenial problem isn’t a millenial generation thing. The parents and grandparents are complicit.

Will hold my ground from now on, which in our Asian culture might be perceived as disrespectful. But it must be done vis. the respect I have for my MIL for her tireless dedication to looking after our lovely baby.
