We have had issues in the past with MIL not respecting our parenting decisions/questioning us. For example "well I don't understand why grandson can't watch TV AT ALL?!?!?!? Sesame Street is soooooooo educational!" Um, not so much for a 6 month old. It is like any decision we make, she just has to argue with it.
Anyway, DS is allergic to eggs, this has been discussed with his pedi and we have decided to eliminate most egg containing foods unless it is something he has had a lot and not had a reaction, then do challenging in 6 months and if there is another reaction he will probably have allergy testing at that point and have a more strict elimination diet, etc. . . . For the record I have serious food allergies and carry an epi pen. DS has had 1 hive reaction, no other reaction before or since.
For some reason MIL refuses to follow our food rules and has for some reason attempted on at least 4 occasions to feed him food that is off limits for him from her plate. Because of this, we do not leave him unsupervised with her, ever. We have discussed the serious nature of food allergies with her, and explained that we do not know how bad the next reaction could be, and that we are really trying to minimize risks. Despite this, she has tried over and over again to feed him things without asking us first.
Well, she wanted to babysit him this weekend. We did not ask her to, we have other plans, but she wants to see him and is insisting that we can do what we had planned but DS does not need to come with us, and instead can stay home for her to watch him. DH flat out said no, went over all the food allergy stuff again, even giving her examples of when she tried to give him food against our wishes. (last time was cake about a week ago) She flipped out said we have "too many rules to remember!", said it is too stressful to even visit us because of all of our rules, then hung up on DH and left the phone off the hook. WTF? Who acts like that? I don't even know how to proceed from here with her. Any advice would be welcome.
