I am a single mom of a 14 month old my sons father is recently wanting to play a role in his life. I don't think he is a horrible person but I do think he needs some help learning what to do. I can't get him to do anything for the baby. Like changing diapers,feeding, playing, clothing, etc. He literally shakes and get very clumbsy when he is around him I know he is a nervous wreck around the baby I have tried so hard to make him comfortable, but I think this is a problem he might not be able to overcome. That being said i'm sure other dads have gone thru things like this and I would just like any suggestion or thoughts on the subject. Also I would like to get him involved with some support groups or family groups that are AP friendly so the he can see that it's not just me that breastfeeds and co-sleeps etc. His family is very mainstream when it comes to things like that. He says he understands and agrees with the way I have been raising our son but I think it would be good for him to hear it form other parents as well and not feel like were gonna raise a freak child because I'm not doing thing the way his mother did. If anyone knows of any good links or has suggestions please let me know.
