A mum was horrified to catch her mum-in-law breastfeeding her baby.
She spotted her in-law trying to nurse her two-month-old son when looking at her baby monitor.
The incident has left her so horrified that she no longer wants the family member to take career of her little one.
On Reddit, the anonymous woman explained: “My baby is breastfed. I pump milk for her to give him during the day and he gets milk right from the source on evenings and weekends.
“He loves nursing and I do too. It’s been a wonderful way for us to bond and a beautiful experience overall.
“Yesterday while I was at work, I opened the baby monitor app on my phone to check and see if my mother-in-law was able to get him to take a nap in his crib.”
The post continues: “She had been texting me saying he was crying really hard so she was thinking about just holding him for a nap, so I wanted to check and see if he was okay and if she ended up just holding him.
“When I looked at the camera, my mother-in-law was holding him and she had her shirt up and he was latched onto her breast.
“I was shocked and horrified. I called her right away and she didn’t answer, so I had to sit there and watch her attempt to breastfeed my baby.
“He was latched on, but obviously not getting any milk as my mother in law is not lactating.
“I called my husband at work, who eventually got ahold of her. Apparently the baby was crying so hard, and that was the only thing she could think of to calm him down enough to sleep.”

The woman added: “I don’t want her watching my baby anymore. We can afford a nanny or daycare.
“When I told my mother-in-law this, she freaked out and said I was being a b*tch and she was just trying to calm the baby down and it wasn’t a big deal.
“She says I’m taking her grandchild away from her and being unfair.
“My husband understands why I’m upset, but wants to give her another chance to watch the baby.
“He also doesn’t want to spend the money to get a nanny or do daycare when she can care for our baby for free.
“Am I being unreasonable here?”
The post has garnered more than 9,500 upvotes – and many reassured the woman that her mother-in-law was the one in the wrong.
One commenter said: “No normal human tries to breastfeed a child they are entrusted to look after.
“This is NOT healthy/sane behaviour. I would be concerned that she has other issues.”
Another agreed: “I wouldn’t trust mother-in-law alone with the baby in any capacity, and I definitely wouldn’t trust her to provide daycare services.
“She crossed a boundary that should have been obvious.”
A third wrote: “I’m so shocked.. has she never heard of a pacifier?
“My mind would never go to breastfeeding another persons baby. I’d have a hard time facing her all together.”
And other fuming commenters accused the mother-in-law of “assault”.
