Ideas for dealing with unsolicited advice?

Anyone else find unsolicited parenting advice annoying? 

My MIL gave me "advice" on everything from napping to doing laundry after my baby was born.   I swallowed it at first because I hadn't found my feet yet as a mother and felt insecure.

But, I am going to see her next week and want to put a stop to it in a nice unoffensive way to keep the family peace.

What would you say to someone ( whom you want to maintain a good relationship with) who gave you unwanted parenting tips?

Thanks!
