Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
The law says that a child is entitled to contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary.
You and your wife need to discuss a pattern of contact which reflects the needs of this tiny baby - at present little and often would be best - building up over the months until you are having him for longer periods of time - and even overnight - however a 50/50 regime is not likely to be the best at this stage so that it is unrealistic to ask for it - contact is child centred not adult centred
