Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, when the child is very young (6 months or less), it is normal for the child to stay with the mother the majority of the time -- especially if the child is being breastfed. So, a 2 hour period of time is not unreasonable for the first few months or so.....but, the court should open up the time and your boyfriend's ability to have the child at his house, etc. after the child gets older.
If your boyfriend wants to agree to this, he may want to suggest having a provision that says his visitation increases with the age of the child.
It is not unusual for a newborn.....but he can object and ask the court to allow him visitation at his house, etc. if he doesn't agree to it. It's ultimately up to the judge if the parties cannot agree.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
