Hi, I’m looking for some advice. My husband left when I was 22 weeks pregnant and has only in the last day or 2 been responsive to discussing arrangements for when it’s born (am 39 weeks now)
he says after a couple of days he wants to be able to take the baby away from me to spend time it which I understand and want, but I “ideally” (and I know that these things don’t always go to plan) want to exclusively breast feed (I’ve always wanted to do this which he knows) and I know that the recommendation is to wait 6 months before expressing to help get a steady supply. I’m really uncomfortable in him taking the baby from me during this time, initially I said 3 months but I realise that my emotions may have got in the way here so what is a reasonable period?
Ive offered an open door policy during this time and said that I can make myself scarce upstairs or in another room so they get time alone together. I’ve also suggested (with her permission) to meet with him at his mums house with the same rules (me in another room) if it’s that he would feel uncomfortable here (not sure why he would, he left me for someone else and I’ve never raised my voice or said anything untoward about any of it, I really want a civil relationship with my baby’s dad!)
