    Hi, your kids are beautiful, God bless!. I know how you feel, I can't be away from my 12 week old for more than two hours before separation anxiety hits, I can imagine a whole weekend, but he is the father of your child, and he deserves some father-daughter time too. You have to trust that he's capable, after all, he's your boyfriend and you have to trust that you made the right choice in choosing him. I would start small though so that you all ease into it. Instead of the whole weekend, start with a few hours and build up. Most importantly, respect the parents but make sure they respect you as parents as well. They are your kids after all. Good luck!

        I totally understand how that would be hard. Especially breastfeeding! I nurse my daughter 5 times a day - about every 3-4 hours. So that means she can't really be away from be for longer then a few hours unless I pump. I'm not a big fan of pumping and I know for some people it's really hard to do. Maybe if you explain that to him he'd be willing to just take her for a few hours. Let him know that's it's not about you trusting him with her, it's about making sure she gets fed. That's hard to argue with!

        If he does well and you get more comfortable you could work up to him spending more time with her when she's old enough.

            I agree with you all and I do have a few trust issues of my own that I am trying to work on but things were so different with my sons dad who didn't want to see his son anyways and my daughters dad who wants to see her its hard to do but I have been doing better. all I want is for him to be happy but being away from her for two nights feels like forever.
