If you are concerned about it, you need to continue to talk to your husband and explain to him how he's going to want to have time to enjoy being a dad and loving his child before everyone else gets there and wants to hold and snuggle your little one. Maybe if you approach it from a way that he can relate to, he'll get it? Also, have him explain to his parents that you're limiting all visitors to 20-30 minutes (or however long you want) so that you and the baby can rest and bond.

Also, for sure talk to the nursing staff. I'd go ahead and type up the types of visitor restrictions that you know you want so that you're not trying to remember all of it later. You can change it later, of course, but since you're thinking about it, why not. You should probably let him know that you plan to give the nurses specific instructions once you start approaching the date so that he understands that he won't just be able to override your wishes last minute.
