Re: MIL help
Just be prepared to stick to it and ignore any comments - both you and your husband!
Maybe have things she can help do? How is she with diapers? Sometimes it works if you can give the baby to her to help do something specific if you don't her interfering with other things or if she can't be involved with other things (like feeding the baby). It might depend on her personality whether it would work or not.
