So, I am a single mother. I have a 6 month old baby and he goes to his dad's/grandparent's house every other weekend and spends one night with them. I work full time and when the baby goes to the sitter after he gets back he acts very violent and cries all day because he only wants to be held. When he is with me he is fine, he cries a little the first day and then he goes back to normal. It seems like the baby's dad doesn't make any decisions for himself. Every time he has a situation his parents get him out of it. I called his mother and explained that the sitters has been complaining about this and told her that this is affecting the baby, that i understand that they miss the baby and want to hold him all the time but it is not good for him because the sitter can not hold her 24/7 and when I am home with him I also do stuff around the house and I also can't hold him all the time. The thing is that her husband grabbed the phone and said "I hold the baby whenever I want" and the hung up the phone. I don't want to waste my time talking to the baby's dad because i feel like it is worthless. Please, any suggestions?
