Rubbish father

I know you shouldnt stop a father from seeing his child but i cant take much more of this, my ex missed his sons birth due to not believing that i was actually in labour (he had 36 hours to show up), he then missed his registration due to going out and getting drunk the night before, but apparently thats ok in his eyes because we can re register him! He was arrested when i was 6 months pregnant for hitting me and has never bought his son anything apart from 1 babygrow and a bib. Im constantly being sent texts saying that my son will grow up to hate me if i dont let him see him ... Along with general abuse. He has a drinking problem too. When i have let him see him it results in an arguement due to him not respecting the way i do things so he will leave so our son doesnt hear it. The whole ssituation is majorily stressing me out and i dont want it to affect my breastfeeding which can apparently happen, what do i do ?

Have no advice sorry, but didn't want you to go unanswered.

Hopefully this will bump for you.

Oh dear. He doesn't sound like he's making it easy for any of you.

I think so long as your child is safe in his company, you have to let him see him though. He is his father at the end of the day. If its something thats a safety issue you have to speak up, if its just different view points though, as hard as it is you need to try and let it rest.

So exhausting having a young baby anyway, and must be so much more difficult when the dad isn't supportive.
