Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I'm sure your sister doesn't mean anything, and is trying to be helpful. I would definitely say something to her, but say it gently and respectfully. You are her mother and know whats best. Being honest with your sister is the best answer. Try to see the good in it, especially bc you are pregnant. Soon you won't have ANY time to yourself :) I think you should tell her the truth, but appreciatively. Good luck!
After this baby, or babies, are here you will welcome your sisters help. It doesn't matter how many diapers she changes, you are still the mom. Your daughter isn't going to start thinking that your sister is her mom, shes just going to have a very good relationship with her aunt. You should try to remember that your daughter is also your sisters niece. Let her play with the baby. Soon you will welcome this help.
personally, i'd let her for as long asshe would do the job. i'd take my child over daily and stay long hours, TRUST ME she'll get tired of it (laughs)
