You are the parent, simply tell them no. Do not allow them to pressure you in to doing something you do not want to.

What does your partner/husband think of this idea? I think it is very important that he spends this time with you. He needs to be with his Mummy when possible, and you need the bonding time together. Don't let them tell you what to do. You are his Mum and know what's best for you and your child. It is wonderful for your child to see you as he falls asleep and wakes up in the morning. Stick with it and good luck.

Sometimes it's hard to say no especially when they help you out with your child and you have a good friendship with them. However, you HAVE to just say no and explain why respectfully and then stick to your guns. Don't say you want to do it for now or that you might think about it. Be CLEAR and say your baby will sleep with you and leave it at that.
