@Caughtinbetween Congratulations on ur baby girl! I will try to focus on ur immediate predicament. Having a nanny is a great option for such a young baby and one I have personally used but it works well only if parents /PIL are not at home or are very used to having a caretaker have full reign of the house. I have seen some of my friends struggle because the elderly visiting parents did not know how to handle and the nanny invariably quits. A nanny cannot be treated like a maid (a maid here also cannot be treated as a maid back home) but thats something some refuse to learn. My nanny was treated like family member(she still is ) and it was a huge learning curve for my parents and PIL. Given ur description of ur PIL I am almost certain they will make her life and urs miserable . If its for a couple of months leave the baby with PIL or choose a day care. Day care comes with its usual perils (infections etc etc) but its a long term solution.
