As to this issue in which there are several contradiction exist .
Parents,they indeed want to bring up their children by themselves, have their children around them and build goods relationship with children,however, the reality for most yongers is they have to work on work days,they don't have time.
Grandparents,they may have time,however,this may effect the communication between the parents and children,especially for  the new borned children,they are sent to their grandparents far away from their parents,children will have the feeling of strangeness with their parents in long run.
How to handle the contradiction?
I think the best solution is that parents and grandparents live together.The children can get  love from both their parents and grandparents.

First, companies in China should take this into consideration by creating more work-at-home positions.
Second, the one who choose to stay at home should receive full respect from the rest of the family, especially the spouse.

the parent is the best,  you should have time to take care of your baby
and you should give your baby enough time to stay with you....

The kid's parents. It is certainly their duty. The grandparents are too old to look after their grandson and they need more time to enjoy their lives. I don't trust nanny.
