its been a week
very little contact over the last three weeks since we broke up, some of it to do with me being unable to cope and not being able to have her after the breakup, I have found it very hard to bond with this child as I have not really played an as active role as I would have liked and have done with my other two children and it is not from lack of trying and being there for her,it has been made very hard for me to spend quality time with her, before that everyday and I was looking after her on my own while her mother was at college, did feel like I could only have her if her mother wasn't there.... at Christmas me and my partner were together still and I stayed at her house in her bed with the baby... everything went fine.
we separated about 2 years ago and I moved out and have not lived with her since. I have had the older two children every Monday and Tuesday and overnight on these days, I think will stay the same. The baby I have been told I can have during the day on a mon and tues, the reason for this is that the baby is not ready to leave her yet. the baby is good as gold and sleeps all night, is bottle fed and eats food and has done so for for 3 months, the baby sleeps with mum in her bed, when she is in a cot she says she will think about me having her overnight. I have played a very active role in bringing up my children as well as taken on two girls that my ex partner had already. the relationship was for about 12 years.
