Hi, I am new here. My name is Alex, I'm 21 and from New Zealand. I have a 3 month old daughter named Scarlet. I apologize for my introduction having a slightly grim following, but I just need to ask how many of you have useless baby-daddies? Could you please share your experiences?
Well, mine is (obviously). He is a gaming addict and barely pays attention to our DD. Him and his brother smoke pot in the house (in the garage, which is connected to the house) after I've told him how irresponsible it is while he has a baby in the house. He makes a huge mess and never cleans after himself. He works 2 days a week and attends class from 8am-12 every week day, and uses this as an excuse not to look after Scarlet as much as me. I don't trust him looking after her when I'm not there because I have caught him falling asleep while she's on his lap and a lot of the time (when I take a shower) and he will put her in her bouncer and just go back on the computer again, not even paying attention to her. There are a lot more things. My milk supply has been depleting and I'm getting ulcers in my mouth cause I am so stressed and tired.
I am so close to leaving him, but I know that deep down inside he can be a good father, but he just needs to awaken it and I am not sure what to do!!
