My 3 year old daughter has been staying overnight with her dad since she was 1 1/2 years old and it has been very hard for me. We get along and we're best friends for 10 plus years prior. I trust him to watch her but I worry he's not meeting her emotional needs. What conversations if any would any mamas suggest I have with her before going to his house for the weekend. She is only three but I swear she looks at me sometimes confused when she gets home and is very clingy and acts a little different sometimes. What is normal and what is not at 3 years old? My attorney did they don't suggest starting joint custody until child is three but I wanted her and him to have father daughter bonding at that young age. I also have a 17 month old daughter and her father and I are engaged and my 3 year old calls him "daddy Clayton" he has been in her life since the day she was born and loved him to pieces! Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!!!!
