I am a single mom of a 7 month old and still nursing and pumping. The father, who has only seen her once (he disappeared for 6 months) and I will be going to court soon to battle out custody and child support. Because I am still nursing, will the judge be able to order me to let him take her for long periods of time or overnight?? I am so afraid this will interfere with nursing. I was hoping someone who has had experience with this can offer some advise...thanks!!

Of course, all laws and protocol vary depending on where you live. Generally speaking, I'd say it's highly unlikely he'll be able to take her overnight until she's a bit older or finished nursing. More than likely, he'll only be able to take her for a few hours or visit while you're present. They usually take into consideration that you're nursing.
