    Hello, my ex and I are discussing overnight stays. My child is 1yr old and sees Dad during the day for 2 days per week. I’m worried my baby is too young for overnight stays. What ages have other mums agreed to overnight stays?

    Hi. My daughter has always been very clingy with me. She was the same and seen her dad during the day. I decided I’d give her dad the opportunity to take her overnight when she turned 1 ironically and was staying one night every weekend for a year and then once she turned 2 I started sending her one night during the week as well. However, now that my daughter is 3 and in her own bedroom&bed ive decided to take away the overnight stay during the week and just daytime contact. Everyone and their child is different so just go on your gut.

    Hi Cory43 if dad has been having his child 2 days a week then i think he deserves the opportunity for an overnight stay. Whilst he/she is 1 you could keep it to 1 night and if you are worried you could phone dad the 1st few times to put your mind at ease.

    I don’t think it should be about ‘deserving ‘ the kids.Our children are not pawns,this is not a game,nor a reward and punishment system.You should do what is convenient for you and your child’s other parent as long as your child is safe and happy in your opinion, as you -being the main carer- will know best.There are no real rules and what may be ‘best’ or ‘advised’ may not work for you at all.
