Hubby and I are expecting our first baby in a month and half and I would love some advice from other mums about having family come and stay when baby is born! We live in Spain so the grandparents won't be here for the birth, but they are naturally keen to come over as soon as they can, and we're looking forward to that. They won't be staying with us because we have no space, but will be in a hotel close by. I'm worried that when I'm exhausted after the birth it's going to be quite tense having the in-laws/my parents around for a couple of weeks. They are all lovely and want to help, suggesting they can look after the baby while we go out etc. I really don't think I will want to leave the baby so soon though and I'm getting anxious about them being in our home all day with me and baby, because we only have one living area. I know I won't be comfortable feeding the baby in front of anyone for a while and am starting to picture myself in the bedroom for hours just to get some space. Please help put my mind at rest! How soon do you think would be ideal to have guests and have you any tips for including grandparents while avoiding stress and getting the help you really need? Thanks!
