Am hoping for some suggestions on creating a parenting plan to avoid going through the courts. Here are the details:
Baby is 2 1/2 months old right now
She is exclusively breastfed
Her father lives 2 hours away and is only able to come up on weekends, but not every weekend
She rarely sees him, and now he doesn't want me around when he visits her.
My concerns are that she doesn't know him at all, and is still really needy. I know she should be able to become familiar with her father, but I am very concerned about her feeling insecure or frightened not having me nearby for extended amounts of time, and her being upset and miserable with him not knowing what she needs (hungry, too warm, needs to be swaddled, is tired, etc.) I've had no reason to leave her with anyone else, so she's never been away from me.
Any advice or suggestions on starting a parenting plan would be awesome :)
