when i divorced my husband we had two boys & the shared custody was decided with the divorce. since then, we reconciled just long enough to have a daughter. we are going to court on the 15th, and i was hoping to ask for full custody on the grounds that she is still actively breastfeeding. she is only 6 months old & she sleeps with me & nurses throughout the night. is there any research or anything that i can present if necessary to show that this is the best route until she is old enough to go the night without breastfeeding? i do not know how friendly my ex is going to be about this. our relationship is not very amicable right now, unfortunately. i am afraid to bring it up to him. he has expressed that he wants me to pump so that he can feed her with a bottle. does anyone have any advice or experience with this kind of thing?
i'm a mama of an 8 year old boy, a 5 year old boy, a 2 year old girl & a newborn baby boy! i'm into attachment parenting, unschooling, writing comics & figuring it all out.
