New Mum Is Horrified When MIL Manhandles Her Nipples Without Asking!
A new mum was left horrified just hours after giving birth all thanks to her meddling mother in law who wouldn’t take no for an answer!
When the new mum was given her newborn to nurse for the first time, not only did her MIL butt in but she went as far as “manhandling” her nipples without asking first.
Writing into discussion forum Reddit, the woman said she experienced hemorrhaging, preeclampsia, and even severe prenatal depression after the birth of her child. So the last thing she wanted was a run in with her meddling MIL!
“It was all very traumatic and 5 months [postpartum] I am still not ok,” she says. “Four hours after my Dear Daughter was born, I was doing skin to skin,” she continued. “I was exhausted, in pain, and overwhelmed. [MIL] arrived at the hospital and tried to take DD off me four times, telling me i would spoil her by holding her too much.” But then things got really bad!
“As I tried to breastfeed she marched over, taking full advantage of my drugged up state, got my nipple between her fingers and started ramming it in my daughter’s mouth,” the mum wrote. “I was shocked and froze, she kept squeezing them and forcing it into her mouth.”
The woman then continued by saying her MIL came back the next day and wasn’t any better. “She handed me a box of chocolates and said they were for me to give to guests,” she continued. “She criticized the room for being too hot then too cold, the way my DD was dressed and positioned, the fact I wanted to shower, me holding DD, me supplementing with formula, and everything.”
“Finally she announced her departure and said she would be bringing a little girl she babysits for to visit tomorrow. I said no, my partner rang her and said no, we thought that would be the end of it,” she added.
Do you think the MIL listened? Of course not! The poor woman was woken up at 10:00am by loud knocking on her door. “I was loudly woken by the door opening and a child I didn’t know shouting and throwing seven balloons at me and the bassinet,” she recalled.
“I was shocked and DD started crying. It was MIL and the child we asked her not to bring,” she continued. “They rushed to grab DD and I said no, at which point MIL got angry and left. She rang DH shouting and saying i was ‘not hospitable.'”
“Had I not been in pain, traumatized, exhausted and vulnerable I would have handled it very differently but it was hard to react at the time,” she wrote.
The comments section lit up with support of the new mum telling her she needs to put her MIL in her place quicksmart.
“I’m so angry on your behalf. What a horrible person,” one commenter wrote.
“Did you ask the hospital to deny her entrance? This is absurd,” a second person added. “The nerve of this woman!!! I hope you and your partner went No Contant with her, or at least Very Little Contact . I’m cheering for you. You’ll definitely get better.”
“This is why such creatures are forbidden access in the hospital. How appalling,” a third person agreed.
“My JNMom did that to me too,” one person shared. “I had a crash c-section and was drugged up and incredibly traumatized – my son and I both almost died during the delivery. She pulled that shit in the hospital when I was too bleary to stop it.”
“When we got home she went full psycho and I caught her trying to ‘breastfeed’ my son. I snapped ‘Get your goddamn tit out of my kid’s mouth!’ and she frantically tried to explain she was just “checking to see if he could latch.”
OMG!! Can you even imagine?!
“I have a friend who this same thing happened to,” the commenter wrote. “Her brother caught her MIL trying to breast feed the baby with a supplement nursing kit from Amazon.”
The new mum updated her post and thankfully we’re happy to hear she’s cut contact with her inappropriate MIL- “spoiler, 5 months later and I’m no contact.”
