I totally agree with you. I wouldn't want to take a newborn on a 3 hour drive at all. And like the others mentioned, with all the sickness going around, that's just another reason to wait a little while longer before exposing her to a lot of people.
i agree with the rest of the women. its not selfish. people may get upset becasue they cant understnad, but yo ucant control their actions. what your mom did isnt right and that would upset me.
if your grandmother just had normal surgery i wouldnt run up there. if she were on her death bed and never has seen her grandchild i would probably go. but thats me.
i took my first child on an 8 hour drive when he was 7 weeks old. we vacationed far away. havent repeated that trip not to much fun. i would think any of them that is a mother would understand.
Definitely not selfish. I HATE how people assume that we want to parade our babies around to people we were never close to, be all happy, and have a decent energy level, just so that they can see our tiny babies that would rather be sleeping at home than disturbed by a bunch of random people anyways. It just amazes (and angers) me how people forget what it's like to have a newborn and feel entitled to seeing the baby.
Personally I would look at it like this.... they know where you live! Its easier to come to YOU than you bring a baby THERE! Well I guess if your gma is in the hospital, that would be tough, but seriously everyone else could come to you. of course not to mention hospital germs!
