My son is 4 months old I have him 4 days and 4 nights then his dad has him 4 days 4 nights. He's s great dad and takes good care of him. We have an app on our phones that we put in when baby eats sleeps pretty much everything can be recorded. I only ask he enter in the baby's feedings and bowel movements (he sometimes has a hard time staying regular) so that we both know what's going on with baby. I can usually tell if somethings wrong with him based on if he's eating less or more often with less ounces. Father has been willing to do this until now. He says I don't need to know anything about baby when he has him and will let me know if somethings wrong. I want to start a schedule for baby with his day naps and a nightly routine, I want his dads help in doing this but he's so unpredictable some days he's all about communicating and getting along then other days he just refuses I think it's important for us to get along and be able to discuss things together but it seems like if it's my idea it's not happening. If I ask how babies doing or if he gave meds he says things like get a life when you don't have him, I told him I'm a mom all the time not just the 4 days I have baby he replies with you are a mom 4 days a week and you need to understand that! Ive tried to stay calm and wait till these moments are done but it's getting harder. My parents were not together and fought non stop so I know from experience how important it is to get along.... Any feedback about the custody or how to handle it all would be great! Maybe I'm just being concerned about baby I am a first time mom but has worked with children for 8 years so I know how important somethings are.
