My daughter is almost 11 months old and has started saying words like mama and dada, well her dad has never been a part of her life, he dumped me while I was pregnant and I got with another guy, well I am still with him and he has done a great job being a father figure to her, I am expecting our first together in May and my daughter has started calling him dada, I think to myself well her dad isn't ever going to be in her life and Dave (my boyfriend) is more of a father figure to her than anyone so what should I do? I mean he isn't really her dad but he mine as well be. I've been with him for over a year and a half now and we live together, and plan on having a family together. Is it ok that she calls him daddy?

Quoting aimhawk:

He's raising her with you there is no reason why she shouldn't be able to call him that if she wants. If her Dad was in the picture then it would be different, because a true man doesn't want their child calling another man Daddy.

 Agreed
