Totally fine mama! Stick to your instincts. The only people I let my children go to are my parents or my sister. They are the closest people to me and are in regular contact with me and my children. The only person on my husbands side I would allow to watch our kids is his dad but he doesn’t get to see them often enough. I’ve never understood the parents that can constantly leave their children with random people/people they don’t know that well. But that’s just me. Don’t think your overreacting at all. I noticed you said your MIL has no maternal instincts – that would be a huge thing for me! My sister in law is very much the same and has a child of her own. I don’t agree with her parenting or things she’s done in the past. You know your child more than anyone so if you feel like they might not be comfortable with a certain person stick to your guns!
