  • I agree- your baby is the most precious thing in the world, and you need to go with your gut on this. Find an alternative ASAP!

  • well, I understand its hard, and if you have a feeling thats not right, then dont do it, but if the daddy wants to spend time with, you should let him, and work something out. you could maybe try for ten minutes first and see what happens, see how he can handle it. dont force yourseld to do anything if you feel thats not whats your baby needs.

  • I wouldn't. Tell him he can have supervised visits until she's a certain age.
