Her Vindictive Mother-in-Law Called the Cops on Her for Innocently Parenting Her Baby, so She Told Her to Pack Her Bags and Get Out

A woman in her 30s recently had a baffling fight with her mother-in-law that ended with a call to the police. The woman explained she had done nothing wrong, but she couldn’t put up with her mother-in-law anymore. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman explained that the doctor advised her that her six-month-old baby needed more tummy time. “Our doctor said he needs more tummy time for his flat spot, to strengthen his muscles, as well as to help him roll over,” she said. However, her baby wasn’t the biggest fan of tummy time.

During tummy time, the baby would often voice his discomfort. She stressed that it wasn’t crying—he just made fussy sounds. But this still led her mother-in-law to make a serious accusation.

Her mother-in-law had been living with them during the early months of the baby’s life. “Things have gone great until this happened,” said the woman. Her mother-in-law said that forcing tummy time on the baby was abusive and hurting him.

Her feelings were so extreme that she even intervened when she heard him making fussy noises from another room. The woman clarified that he wasn’t even doing tummy time when she barged in, but rather that he was just making noises out of boredom. That didn’t stop the mother-in-law from snatching the baby away.

When it happened another time, the woman held onto her baby and locked herself in a different room. The mother-in-law chased after her, banging on the door to be let in. Then the older woman made an even more serious threat—and she followed through.

“Two policemen talked to her and then us,” she explained. “I invited them in and said they could walk around.” In the meantime, the woman had also called her partner, who dropped everything at work and raced home. But the police did not seem to take this quite as seriously as the mother-in-law hoped.

“The police couldn’t contain their laughter,” said the woman, “and said that they run into mothers who disagree with parenting styles a lot.” However, the woman was far from laughing—she was extremely upset at her mother-in-law for taking such drastic measures against her perfectly normal parenting. After the cops left, the woman had to take action of her own.

No police report was filed, but there was a very different consequence instead. The woman could no longer have her mother-in-law living under the same roof. She and her partner paid for a motel for his mother and also purchased her a ticket for a flight home the following day.

What was supposed to have been a happy, peaceful time with an in-law helping to care for a new baby ended up turning into a nightmare. The woman said that her mother-in-law still felt no regret for the way she acted. But the woman didn’t want her to see her grandson ever again. She asked the Internet to weigh in on what happened.

Commenters were fully supportive of the woman’s right to kick out her overreaching mother-in-law. “Good for you guys for kicking her out and sending her home!” said one commenter, adding, “All three of my kids hated tummy time. They couldn’t see anything. I get it.” Another reply said, “She burned the bridge. She’s done forever.”
