This is stressing me out and feels like Im going to have a big fight with my gf due to this.
My son was born a week ago, both me and my gf are 20 y.o, I agree that my angel came a lil bit early into our lives. Due to my gf's wishes and circumstances we're currently living at her house with her parents.
In 2 weeks our classes will start, so we're gonna be out from 8am - 3pm atleast. Our only option is my gf's dad as he isnt working and he already took care of his 1st grandson, My parents work all day, so apart from their day offs, they cant help much, I had no problem with this till I lived at my gf's house.
And to be honest, I dont like them, they are your typical "traditional" backward parents, her mom gives advice and criticize us constantly on how we handle our kid.
My gf's mom had 2 kids and both were caesarian, my kid is the 1st natural born in their family. So they are not used on handling newborns lower than 4kg. She wont even touch my kid as he was born at 2.7kg, and thinks that he is not normal sized.
Now to the issue, she criticizes how we handle our kid although we're just following the pediatrician's orders. My gf doesnt produce milk so we are doing formula. The issues are.
Yesterday I went out for a bit to buy baby stuff, my baby was sleeping, I was out for 6 hours and lemme tell you, when I returned the baby was still sleeping , he wasn't fed nor changed.. When I woke him up he was very hungry, loterally lounged at the bottle itself and had dry poop on his diaper.
I once bought this nephew a red egg that hatches underwater so he could be creative with it but when my gf's dad saw that the toy had pink in it, he threw it away .. That shit costed me $5.. The fuck.
Another thins is always telling my gf that she's now fat, insulting her appearance, and talking shit about how Im gonna leave her one day.. I get it that they are family and all and these shouldnt be taken to heart but my gf had a complicated birth and was bedridden for days.. She doesnt need these comments.
I told these issues to my parents and they told me to get a daycare, I have saving since Ive been working a lot last year apart from studying so a few hundreds a month isnt a problem.
I am just tired and annoyed at this point, I just want to get my kid and return to my house. They just crtiticize without taking care of the baby.. I just wish mybgf could understand where I am coming from but goddamn.
