question to all mommies here who are grandparents

did u help ur daughter or son with ur grandchildren when they were born and how much help did u give them and were they greateful with the help or did u not help them out

Cuz my mom didn't help that much she came at night from 3:30_6:30 to help but during the day I was all alone she helped only certain days out of the week and she says she helped 3 months but in reality it was 1 months she likes to think of her self as a good mother but not really

    well my mother help me right after I came out the hospital (due to c.section) she was with me for 3 weeks taking care of the baby 24/7, cooking, cleaning ect. And so she did it again for my 2nd child and hopefully again with baby#3 and I will always be grateful! ! In my sister's case she is an ungrateful Lil Thing my mom live a few blocks away from her and my mom did and still doing everything for her and her kids but she always say she does Everything alone with no help!!

      My parents came and visited during the day and helped out when they visited but that is all. They didn't come at night or come just to help during the day. I never really had much help even though grandparents on both sides of the family were alive. I don't see it is their job to really help, I see it as their job to visit and love on the grandchildren and help out a little bit. I am the mom and taking care of the baby is my job.

      I know but when they need our help they want us to be there 24/7 too bit we all have a family to take care of and if they can they should help and not be like that

        My mom came with my first, second and fourth, but due to the distance she came 2-4 weeks after the births. She helped with meals, laundry, the older children and just to visit and get to know all my little people.

        My mil did come with almost all of them for a few days to a week. She mostly read to the children and did a few other things. Her primary purpose was to stay with the children while we went to the hospital in our first five births.

            My first 2 weeks home my mom was over here everyday she came after work... it was really nice... She also went to Target everyday before coming over cause there was always something new that we needed... (First time momma) Weather it be diapers or wipes or a new bottle or bottled water for me... it was great and when she would come I could finally get out of bed. (Couldn't do it by myself) and take a shower and get up and walk around a little... I had a simi-emergency c-section and didn't handle it all very well... I was very glad my mom came over and helped out so much. :)
