When I was pregnant with my daughter my husband left me for his girlfriend. Our divorce became official when my daughter was 7 months old. She is now 13 months old and my ex is getting remarried this month and his girlfriend/fiance is now expecting a baby in 3 months. I have full physical custody of our daughter and she visits her father for 24 hours every other weekend. I have recently found out that they are referring to my ex's fiance as mommy, mama, etc to my daughter. My ex keeps telling me that he isn't "teaching" our daughter what to call his fiance, that when our daughter is old enough she will decide what she wants to call her. I feel that because she is so young and just learning to talk that when he refers to his fiance as mama, he is teaching our daughter to call her that. I have asked that our of respect for me, they only refer to his fiance by her name when they are talking to our daughter, but that seems to be like talking to a brick wall. Am I off base by requesting this? Any suggestions?
