The key here is - just because someone doesn't parent the way you do, doesn't make them a bad parent. Just makes them different. You can't teach her to parent your way. I have a neighbor who is like that. She expects all children to be parented the way she parents hers. She thinks she's above me. I parent the way I do by choice and have no desire to change for her or anyone else.

Step back & let her be O's mom. You don't have to like it or agree with how she does it but you do have to respect it. O will turn out just fine.
The same thing goes for her though. It's not about her stepping on stepmom's toes because she's not there by herself she's with this child's father. The mom is being completely disrespectful to the father because of her insecurities about the stepmother. It wasn't SM's choice to put sunscreen on O, it was a joint decision because he needs it. The dad would do that if he were by himself as well because it's a common sense this is what I have to do to take care of my kid thing.
