I am planning to move across the country with my 9 month old daughter, to be near my family. My baby's father and I broke up a few months ago, and I don't get along with his family (especially his nosey mother).
He told me he didn't have problwm with me moving and taking the baby, but now that I'm starting to make some definite plans, he's starting to act differently. He keeps saying how he's not going to see the baby grow up, and that he'll miss the both of us. (He only sees the baby 2-3 times per month, even though he only lives less than 10 miles away).
Do you think he's changing his mind, and will try to keep us from moving (via court order)? I can just imagine his mother "encouraging" him to do so (she hasn't visited my daughter in 5 months but complains to her family and friends that she can't see the baby! Whatever).
What do you think I should do? Should I move quickly before he changes his mind??

I think it's a big no no to move so far away. Your child needs both parents. You are an adult now and can visit your family or they can come visit you. I never agree with any child be away from any parent. It's not fair to the child. If he is doing what he is supposed to as a father there is NO reason to leave.

I am in the same situation and it's not about you it's about the child. Go make friends. Join local moms groups and local play groups but how is that fair to the child because of how YOU feel? You asked a question, people are giving opinions so so get PO'd if you don't like the answer.
