Any parent knows the excitement of welcoming a new baby into their family, but one expecting mother has drawn the line after she started to fear that her mum wants to take her baby.

Not only is a new baby exciting for the parents but becoming a grandparent for the first time is also a huge milestone. One woman, who is 23 weeks pregnant, says that while she is pleased her mum is “excited” to become a grandma, she has started making “uncomfortable comments”.




Anonymously taking to Mumsnet, the daughter said she is “panicking” that her mum will be overbearing when the baby arrives; she has already insisted taking time off work to look after the baby and says “I can look after it” as soon her daughter expresses uncomfortableness in her pregnancy.

“My problem is, she keeps saying she is going to take the baby away from me”, the concerned first-time mum said.

Explaining her mum’s expectations for when the baby arrives, the concerned woman said: “She is dropping a day at work to help – I told her not to do it until after I finished maternity leave, but she’ll start from when the baby is about 6 weeks old.

“She expects that she will be able to take the baby to hers as soon as she drops the day at work. She said she wants to show her off to her friends and workplace. I said today in a light-hearted way that I’d had to tell my dog off and she called me a mean mum and said if I do that to her granddaughter, she will come and pick her up and take her home.”

The worried mum-to-be said her mum has also been negative about her passion to breastfeed her baby. She commented: “I haven’t been able to tolerate anything spicy since I got pregnant, and I told her I couldn’t wait to have a takeaway curry and I was going to get one that week after she’s born, and my mum said ‘the baby can stop at mine’.”

The Mumsnet user added: “Whenever she says something like it, it puts me really on edge and upsets me, I can’t seem to shake it straight off. It has taken me a long time to conceive, over 10 years and I already had a bit of an irrational fear of the baby being taken away from me and these comments just make it worse.
