When I was pregnant, the father left me, saying his feelings changed and didn't talk to me for weeks sometimes months. At 6 months pregnant, I had to go by myself to buy everything for the nursery and put everything together myself. Our friends kept saying that he'll change once the baby is here. So I kept in touch. He remained the same and I was getting stressed out. Doctors told me that the stress was bad for me and the baby and it was putting both of us at risk. Anyways, I had the baby, he was there at the hospital with me. I went home and for the first two weeks he was there with me off and on. Then there was a fight between him and my parents. After that he has not been over and has not made any type of effort to see his son. He is almost three months old and his father has not seen him since he was a little over a month. Doesn't even ask about him. My doors are open to him anytime he wants to come over. But he never comes. And now he's saying that he wants to take the baby so he can spend time with him. Am I wrong for not letting him? He hasn't been around for the pregnancy and nearly the first two months of the baby's life. He's saying that I'm keeping him away from his son, but he never makes an effort to see him.
Any advice? :/
