This seems to be my mom's theory on EVERYTHING that I may have a problem with.
First it was an old crib that my dad is going to cobble together with some bolts and screws (including screwing the dropside that doesn't fit right to the ends of the crib). When I told them that I didn't want to use it at my house (after setting it up and finding out that it was broken) they took it home and said "That's okay, the baby can use it at Grandma's."
At my shower yesterday (which was wonderful) part of the centerpeices were bottles. I wanted to use glass bottles, but my mom couldn't find any and got BPA free plastic bottles. I'm planning on primarily breastfeeding, so I don't really think its a huge deal to use the BPA free bottles. My mom said "Are these bottles okay? If you don't want to use them, the baby can use them at my house." There have been a million other little comments about "Well, we can do that/use that at Grandma's."
What makes it okay for her to think that she can raise my child however she likes because she's babysitting? (She lives two hours away, so she's not going to babysit that often, which I don't think she realizes) I'm honestly scared to leave him with her, because she still thinks its okay to put a rear-facing carseat in the front seat (with airbags). Any ideas on how to nicely nip this in the bud? I don't really care about the little things, but I am worried about the crib and other safety issues (laying him on his stomach, the car seat, etc.)
