Let’s dig into the details

A little background
OP’s in-laws have opted to host her at their home after she gives birth. However, OP has made it clear that she doesn't want any visitors while recovering at their home
While OP’s MIL is fine with her terms, FIL is adamant that he should be able to invite his parents over — after all, it’s his house
The argument has split the family apart, and OP is in a dilemma over the situation
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“Just don’t go. Even without all the things you mention, it just doesn't sound like a good idea at all.”
“FIL/MIL need to figure out their plan for the holidays between them, and you accept or decline the invitation based on that.“
“You’re a guest in your in-laws home, you can’t also dictate who they have in their home.”
“YTA for trying to police guests at someone else's house and this.”
“YTA for considering visiting at someone else's house when the baby is only a WEEK old! Stay home and have a quiet Christmas.”
“I would suggest just staying home and let them visit.“
Redditors assured OP that her demands were reasonable. However, they urged her to reconsider spending Christmas with her in-laws even though her MIL is adamant about it.
Her father-in-law’s reaction hinted at potential chaos — It’s Christmas, so Steve and May might decide to “drop by” for “only a minute”.
As the majority have said, It’s probably best to seek peace and quiet within the confines of her home
