my due date is nov. 22nd and my bf is leaving for school in september and wont be back til feb. he comes home 1 or 2 times a month, but im just worried the baby isnt gonna know her daddy when he comes back. also we wont be able to move in together til june, just visits every now and then. so im just wondering if any of you guys have had experience with this?

maybe i could show her pictures of him? ugh so frustrating.

It is frustrating!

Is there a possibility of you taking the baby to him in between his visits to you?

She'll be too young to appreciate the photo thing, especially since she won't even be able to focus on precise objects for the first few months, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Is it possible for you to play a tape of his voice to her? Maybe you could get him to record himself reading stories to her or something? That way maybe she'll remember his voice and know it when she hears it?.....just an idea.

yeah i know...
but he will be 2hrs away, and he can only have visitors at certain times.
about the voice thing, i guess i could get him to talk to her on speakerphone when he calls. good idea
