My daughter will be 2 months in a few days and her father wants me to start giving her formula. This all started last week while his sister was watching her my daughter did not take the bottle of my breast milk. Then it accelerated from their. She told him and he went off the deep in. Making statements like she need to go on formula because he think she is dependent on my breast. Which is not the case. I’ve been breastfeeding and pumping since she’s been one week old. But, now it’s a problem he say. He stated that I was being selfish by only feeding my 2 month old breast milk. But the main thing I keep hearing from him is that he feel like he wont be able to spend time alone with her. That he don’t want to be dependant on me for breast milk. Needless to say, we had a huge argument mainly him and he hung up in my face. Me the peace maker called back after awhile and he sent me to voicemail. I explained to him everything and tried to calm his concerns and reassure him everything will be okay. Just to be patient until she is at least 6 months - 12 months. But, he still refuses to hear and still rejects my phone calls. In need of peace so what to do?
