Should I let my two year olds dad see her alone?

My two year olds father and u split up when u was 2 months pregnant. At first he wasn't going to be involved but after she was born he decided to see her when she was 8 weeks old. Since then he has seen her with me supervising every 4 to 6 weeks for about 2 to 4 hours. He now has a girlfriend and apparently she does not like him spending time with me on the visits so she has said she wants to come along or he wants to see my daughter on his own. I don't feel comfortable with either if these options and think we should carry on as we have done until she is older say 3 or 4 when I might consider him having access alone. He pays no child support so I feel why should he demand access in his own. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated! Xxx

I don't think he would harm her I just think it is a huge responsibility taking out a 25 month old and I am worried she might run awAy or something like that as she is very active and a handful! Plus he has never changed a nappy and we are still nappy changing. I think introducing a girlfriend might confuse her a little. She has never been on her own with him! I can see his girlfriends point but I think it is more important what I want and what's best for my daughter!

DO you suspect he might harm her in some way? Demanding child support for visitation rights is like buying them, and really, your daughter deserves to know her father. It might be hard, but if there is no real reason other than you are angry with him, you should grant him access. If you still want support, ask for it or take him to court. But definitely draw up a legal parenting plan to protect yourself and her.
