My in laws were exactly the same. Fortunately, we didn't live with them (I would have ended up killing them lol)
We used to go down and visit mine and his parents every weekend, mine were fine, his were not, always saying things like "You shouldn't do that, I never used to do it like that, let me show you how its done" even down to feeding, always thinking that they knew best.
In the end, we both told them if they wanted to continue seeing their granddaughter they had to butt out and let us get on with it, they eventually did back off and now we all get on fine. Our daughter will be 4 at christmas and gets to see the in laws about once a month even though she always stays at my parents every weekend so its turned out for the best

The sooner you do, the better you will feel.
Its your child, not theirs, they had that responsibility when your oh was born, where the in laws bothering them and telling them what to do with baby ? I don't think so, it was probably more a case of you made your bed, now lie in it.
Good luck and I hope you get your own place soon.
FX for you all xxx

I'm good, doing a lot better now (m/c last week 10+5)
How are you three doing ?
I really hope you find a place soon, its horrible living under someone else's roof because you have to live by their rules.
Keep me informed how you get on xxx
