hey ladies. my son is 9months old, and my SIL daughter is 8months old. Her daughter likes to "beat up" my son when they are together. and my SIL does nothing about it. sometimes she encourages her daughter to "attack" my son, calling him a wuss for crying and making fun of me for picking him up. she never corrects her daughter or tries to move her away from my son when her daughter starts going after him. she will bite, pinch, and tackle him. i know her daughter is too young to know better, but how should i handle this situation with my SIL?

Oh my! Like you said the little girl doesn't know any better but your son doesn't need to lay there and just take it either. I think you do the right thing by picking him up. One idea would be for you to sit down with them and when the little girl starts to get too aggressive with your son you could tell her "owie" or "gentle" and then move her away from him. You can always sit between them and be his body guard. I don't think that any baby can be a wuss! They need loved and taken care of! If your SIL makes fun of you for helping your baby and is calling him a wuss, I can't imagine wanting to hang out with her more than I had to. And there is no way that she would ever be babysitting!! Hopefully your SIL will get a clue! Good luck!!
