The last time I was on here I was asking advice about a father that was never around for pregnancy and the first eight months.. it may not sound like a long time but for me it was very hard. After reading everyones advice, I decided to work a schedule. Mon to thurs with me and fri to sun with dad. It was a big change for our son, but I figured he would need his dad in the long run...
Anyways hes been staying at his dads since mid october and each time I get him back something is wrong. He came back with a cold (I dont blame his dad.. its winter and colds are common) but hes been sick for a couple weeks now. When hes with me, he gets better and friday rolls around.. sunday I get him back and its back to square one. He also came back with an infection down there due to poor cleaning and/or not changing his soiled diaper.
Now I find out that the father is going out with his friends and leaving our son with whoever is home. I dont have anything against it but I feel like he should be at home taking care of his sick son. I am usually up all night checking his temp and cleaning all the snot in his nose and giving him meds.. am I just being difficult? I need an outsiders opinion on this..
