Injured Mom's Dilemma: To Accept Help or Not? 🤷‍♀️

After being left in pain and ignored by her in-laws, this mom is questioning whether she should accept their help with her baby. Her boyfriend and his family seem to be divided on the issue, with some siding with her and others urging her to be grateful for their support. As Debra keeps calling and expressing her desire to help, the mom is left wondering if she's being too harsh or if her decision to distance herself is justified. 😕 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...

"Babies cries are high-pitched. A tumble down the stairs is a lot of ruckus. An adult human cries at a much lower register than a baby. If I'm at someone's house, and their baby cries, I wonder, 'Why isn't mom/dad taking care of this baby?' NTA"

"If you can't hear me falling down the stairs, you wouldn't even be able to hear the baby fall off the couch. It's too much of a risk to have you guys over here unsupervised." 😱

"I fell down the stairs, and you heard me fall. I believe you when you say you didn't hear me calling for help, but the fact that neither of you cared enough even to come out of the sitting-room and check if I was okay after I fell down stairs, says to me that I don't want you looking after my kid. Next time it might be HER falling downstairs, and you sitting in the sitting-room not hearing her call for help and unworried by the fact that you just heard someone fall down your stairs." 😱
