Dads and their children
I hope someone here can give me some perspective.
I am a bit postpartum and I don't think I am thinking clearly.
I have a 3month old by my bf. I do not live with my bf. I am a divorced mom of a 7yr old as well. Part of the reason I do not live with my bf is because he has hard a hard time adjusting to having a 7yr old around. He is good with her but..anyway, I digress.
My question is this: should a 3month old be allowed to stay with her daddy 3 days a week?. My bf and I have argued about this. We started this schedule this month. As soon as I came back to work from maternity leave he took a couple weeks off from work to take her to his place for a few days a week.
I cry every time he takes the baby. He says he feels the same way when he is not with his daughter. He also says a dad needs to bound with his child. I get that..but he also tells me he will not accept not seeing her at least 50% of the time. He also says if I make him a "weekend dad" (only seeing his child on the weekend) he will take me to court and try to get custody.. A child needs to bound with their mother too...right?.
Please help me with this.
