Erm I think Im worse off than you
I guess every family is different (jia jia you ben nan nian jing)
My mother in law didnt buy anything nutritious for me to eat like bird nest or soups..She also never ask if want hire nanny or she take care of baby n do confinement for me.
My own mum is better off than her cause at least she cook for me good stuff like every wk.
mother in law will only ask how I am and whether got swollen feet....
N the child is the first grandchild..my hubby is first son !!! Anyway I suspect its because my child is female n not male..Perhaps she want a male grandchild !!!
Sometimes it make me feel sad thinking about it too..sigh..
I guess if you dont trust your mother in law, then hire a nanny (you cant really save these costs) if noone can do it for you.
My own mum volunteered to do confinement for me but she got very sick recently and I have to last min deposit for a nanny. If not noone else can help me.. :<
