If there is no court order, it depends on what kind of a father he is, if he is a good father who you believe will take care of him, and you trust him to do this, regardless if you are breast feeding, (you can always put it in a bottle for just an overnight visit), if he is not a good father who is prone to get aggravated after long periods of being alone with a 13 month old, or who just doesn't take care of his needs, then ABSOLUTELY NOT! Follow your instincts, after all the baby has been with you longer than with his father. You carried him for 9 months. If the latter is the case, you might try going back to court and get supervised visitation, because after all, a father is entitled to see his children too, just not always by himself.

@ Stacy Few: Saying "ABSOLUTELY NOT' and encouraging parental alienation is not sound advice.

The OP needs to get orders in place, if there are none, and if they are currently contemplating orders, and the judge orders overnights, she will be in contempt of court if she withholds ordered visitation.

You seem to be forgetting that, once a split in a relationship happens, vary rarely will either party admit that the other may be a good parent...I see more refusal to allow a non custodial parent visits and overnights than I do cooperation with orders, it seems.

Actually, unless you are exclusively breastfeeding the child, he's old enough to stay with his father. After all, he's old enough for you to keep, isn't he?

I know that sounds callous, but it's the truth

What do you mean? There are no court orders? Or the court orders state he is not to have him overnight?

Depends on what the court orders regarding visitation is.

Is he old enough to stay without you? Yes.
