Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can i ask your first name?
Hi Dr phil
Tell me more about the person you are leaving the baby with and why
Its her father, he has requested that he have unsupervised visits with our daughter and wants to take her for a full 2hrs straight away.. they havent got an established bond and she is reliant on an inhaler and is in the process of having tests for allergic reactions shes having
do you trust him?
Although I am more than happy to support a full relationship between them im concerned that two hour is far too long for her to begin with
I don't trust him no
I agree with you 100%
As a doctor and father of two small children
It should start with 1/2 hour
and progress if everything goes well
Can you advise on how quickly to progress the visits as he wants to increase the time every visit (which is once a fortnight) until he has her for the full day
I would say one month at a time
By how much, would half an hour be acceptable? ?
1/2 hour per month then increase by 1/2 hour if she is doing well
Thank you very much Dr Phil
you're welcome :)
you are a good mom Kelly
i can tell you are concerned and I share that concern
do you have more questions for me?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I have my misgivings regarding him I understand that it is important for her to have a happy, healthy relationship with her dad regardless of my feelings however I just needed to make sure I am taking her needs into account while keeping her safe
you are being very mature about this
that should be commended
Can she pick up on my misgivings regarding her dad, I try to be happy and possitive while im around but im concerned it will have an affect on her
Not right now
she won't be able to do that for a long time
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I need to know. :)
I'm glad to help
would you be so kind as to rate positive before leaving?
Not a problem, just done for you
