<span style=”color: #353535; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;”>My Baby is 12 weeks old and when I became pregnant I was in a casual relationship with his dad. We remained friends throughout the pregnancy until 5 weeks before I gave birth when he started a relationship with someone else. After that, he decided we wernt going to be friends anymore and would only want contact for everything involving the baby but not me. Since the baby was 5 weeks old he has had him once a week sleeping over at his parents where he was living. But now, he has moved into a new house with his girlfriend and her child. I am massively struggling to deal with the thought of them all beign around my child when I don’t even know the new girl or never seen her. I would never stop him seeing his child but after years of struggling with anxiety it has flared up again and I’m struggling to deal with it all. </span>
Hello, I agree with Anonymous. I wouldn’t allow overnight contact for newborns and out of respect for you and your child, he should have at least introduced you to his new partner. It’s important for you and would help ease some insecurities, to get to know her as she is potentially another permanent figure within the household that would have some role within the care of your child. Don’t feel guilty for feeling reservations about the situation, especially if it causes that kind of anxiety (i know how you feel, i’m in similar situation).
