My son is almost 5 months old and recently has had to go to his fathers house for court ordered visitation. He lives 45 min from me so my son goes about 4 hours before I can feed him again. He has never taken care (or seen) him before but the judge let him have him cuz he took a parenting class. Its really screwed up but my big problem is that I have been with my son all the time and I have only breastfed him. No one even asked me if he would take a bottle and he wont. My mom has tried and so has my dad and he just pushes it away. He eats on-demand but NEVER goes over 2 hrs without eating during the day. The father I should mention is a controling person who only cares about himself. He has not even started child support yet. He only wants my son because he is still mad at me for leaving him. But anyways he has had 3 visitations so far. The first time son came back and ate twice within the first 45 min...obviously hungry. The father told me he ate though. the second time he made up some excuse (5 different stories) about the bag of frozen milk leaking and not having enough to feed him so i told him to bring him back and he finally did. The third time he went he told me he ate twice. My son ate pretty good when he got back to me but did not seem as starved as he was the first visitation. He usually poops every other day or so since I give him cereal once a day. Since he got home this last time though he has already pooped 3 times in four or so hrs. SInce I already know he wont take a bottle.....im confused on what he might have given him to eat this time. anyone have any ideas? And anyone know how I can prove he is lying about feeding my son during visitation? I know he would never tell me if he wasnt eating. He has already lied about so much.
