The father of my 2 month old daughter wants to have her for a weekend. Since she was born he has only seen her for a total of 7 hrs. 5 hours at the hospital when she was bron and 2 hrs when I brought her to see him. I don't know what to do because He is finally showing that he wants to be in her life but I dont think she should be away from her mother that long. Any advice?

Suggest a gradual build up to a weekend stay. Let him look after her for a few hours, do this several times and then try an overnight stay. If that works out do it a few more times and then do a whole weekend. Let him be a part of her life but talk to him nicely about how you want to do this so he understands he just can't take her for a whole weekend right away as it would be a bit of a jolt for her, but help him and your baby get to know each other so she can grow up looking forward to visits with her Daddy. If you both do this gradually with her then there is no reason why she won't adjust quickly to spending time away from you.

Yes i think that's what I'm going to try to do. He wants to be apart of her life and I want him to also. So like you said slowly building their relationship is best I believe. Thanks!!
