My baby is inconsolable when with her grandparents. Any suggestions?

I am in need of some HELP. My baby girl is 3 months old. I am a freelance worker and try to schedule my clients around my husband's schedule. This isn't always possible though and we rely on my husband's parents to watch the baby for us. The problem is, my daughter starts crying the minute my MIL grabs her. She does a bit better with my FIL. She is inconsolable when she's with them. I can't exactly ask my bridal clients to reschedule their wedding day to fit my needs. I can't stop working either. We've tried giving them our shirts to make our daughter feel like we're there with her. I don't know what to do. They're really our only option for childcare. I don't like leaving her screaming and crying and coming home to her screaming and crying. It's so stressful for her and me. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! TIA!!
