A Woman’s Baby Was Unhappy During ‘Tummy Time’ Which Was Normal, but The Woman’s Mother-In-Law Claimed It Was Abuse and Called the Police

A woman had recently given birth to a baby boy, and she and her husband could not have been happier. However, their happiness quickly deteriorated into stress when the husband’s mother took drastic action against the woman’s parenting skills.

The couple’s baby showed clear signs of happiness and good health, but their pediatrician had advised them to incorporate more tummy time into their baby’s routine. This involved resting the child gently on the woman’s belly, face down.

The couple were quick to take their pediatrician’s advice, recognizing that he knew best for the child’s health. However, the baby wasn’t exactly thrilled with the idea, although he still didn’t cry – he just made some uncomfortable noises.

Trouble began when the mother-in-law, who had been living with the family for a few months, expressed strong disapproval. She accused the couple of abusing their own child, citing the baby’s discomfort during tummy time as evidence.

The situation escalated when the mother-in-law forcibly took the baby during a tummy time session, accusing the parents of committing violence against their child. “I regretted letting her take him, but I let her”, lamented the woman.

The next day, things escalated when the mother-in-law attempted to intervene again. “I refused to give her my baby”, the woman wrote. “The thing is, I WASN’T EVEN DOING TUMMY TIME. My baby complains when he isn’t doing something, he just constantly gets bored. My mother-in-law heard him complaining and came barging in saying I’m abusing him again.”

Tensions reached their peak when the mother-in-law threatened to call the police. Fearing an escalation, the mother locked herself in another room and made a call to her partner, who rushed home from work.

The mother-in-law outrageously proceeded to call the police. Upon arrival, the police spoke to both parties involved. They conducted a thorough inspection of the house and observed a clean environment and a contented baby. The mother-in-law’s claims about hygiene and tummy time were met with skepticism, and the police refrained from filing any reports.

“No baby likes tummy time”, stated another reader. “My middle guy used to shriek during tummy time. Thank goodness y’all got her out of there. Block her on all of your stuff; her son can deal with her exclusively from now on.”
