You're both over the moon, and as a new mom, you're already super protective of your little one. 🥰 But here's the catch - your mother-in-law has a history of being a less-than-stellar mom, and now she wants to babysit your precious baby. 😳 Would you trust her? This new mom is facing this exact dilemma and needs your help to figure out if she's in the wrong for not trusting her MIL with her baby. 💔

🤰 New Mom vs. MIL: The Babysitting Battle 🍼

Our new mom is faced with a tough decision: should she trust her mother-in-law to babysit her baby girl, despite her MIL's history of being a terrible mom to her own children? 😨 From leaving her kids home alone at a young age to abandoning them for years, this MIL has a lot to answer for. But now, she wants to make up for her past mistakes by being there for her granddaughter. 👵 The new mom, however, isn't having it, and she's not afraid to tell her MIL exactly how she feels. 💣 This has caused some major family drama, with everyone taking sides. Even her husband, who doesn't trust his mom either, thinks she should have sugarcoated her response. 🍬 So, what do you think? Is our new mom in the wrong for not trusting her MIL with her baby, or is she just being a protective mama bear? 🐻 Let's see what the internet has to say about this sticky situation... 🕵️‍♀️
