Because we are talking about an older baby here, a judge may not consider your baby's need to breastfeed supercedes the baby's need to have an equal relationship with her father. As Raye said, you would need to present evidence to the court that he is on drugs. Get yourself that lawyer :)

Also, you can request that the court orders a drug test. That will either help ease your mind, or protect your baby. Either way, that's a good thing.

If you don't already have a lawyer, you should get one. You need to submit any evidence of his recent drug use to the court. You can also show them the hate mail if it relates to how he would treat the child. Chances are that he will be awarded some kind of visitation at the very least. You may ask for supervised, but it's up to the court to look at the situation and make a ruling. Then you both have to abide by the court's decision.
