custody arrangements

i split up with my husband when i was 5 months pregnant
he has another woman now. my ex still wants to see the baby which is good but eventually will want to get his new girlfriend involved
how do people cope with this and also being separated from their gorgeous baby
i know its going to happen but still would like some tips

    I'm so sorry to hear this :( Have you had the baby yet? It's not clear from your post.

    In terms of being separated from your baby, I wouldn't expect this to happen for a while with a newborn. Have you spoken to your husband about both of your expectations for custody? For example, would you be ok with him visiting at yours? Or is their a more neutral place where you could both spend time with the baby (yours or his parents house?).
