Okay, so DH's brother and girl friend are flying in for a week. DH wants to take DS to the airport to pick them up, which is an hour one way -- not counting the time DS would have to sit in his car seat waiting for them to load the car.
THEN DH wants to take them all to their mom's house for the afternoon. After that, he'd bring baby home where I'd have an hour to nurse DS, dress him, and then turn around to take him back out for a family function that will last for about 3 hours or more.
I told my husband tonight that it was just a bad idea have our six month old out all day with that much activity, stimulation, not being nursed (I do have some milk pumped, but not much and was planning to use it tomorrow night), being stuck in the car seat for a few hours unnecessarily.
DH was upset saying that I'm overprotective. But when I asked him his motives, he said he wanted to be the big shot to his brother. My answer to that was that our baby isn't a trophy. Uggg....
It should be noted that his brother will be here all week and we do plan to spend time at MILs house so everyone gets plenty of time with baby.
With all of that said, has anyone had a similar experience having to advocate for baby? Or am I being overprotective?
