Question I'm selfish with my baby. Is something wrong??

I've just been feeling so uneasy about other people holding my baby, and taking care of her. My mom is the only one I've left her alone with, and that was just because I was about to lose it from losing so much sleep. Everyone keeps telling me of how they will babysit her for me, any time I wanted, but I don't want them to...ever! Now, that really bothers me, but what gets me the most is how everyone wants to wake her up when they see her!!! I HATE that!!!!!!!!!! I tell them, "Just let her sleep...She needs to sleep...Please, don't wake her up right now," and it's a pain in the butt! I won't even use this expensive breast pump that I just bought because I don't want anyone else to be able to care for her, but me.

Is there something wrong with me, or is this just a normal new parenting thing? It bothers me an awful lot, and I want to do something about it, I'm just not sure what.
