One woman detailed her ordeal, stating that she was asked to feed her baby away from her father-in-law at their home.

User u/aitabffilb writes, “My husband's family doesn't celebrate Christmas, so mid-December we spend a week with them before flying to see my parents (who are Christmas mad) to spend the holidays with them,” to explain how they ended up there.
