This answer was rated:

Question what effect does it have on a baby when the father has never been in the babies life,there is twins a boy and a girl they are now 14 months old and by choice there father has never seen them ,but now is thinking of seening them for the first time.Question two, if the babies had there father from birth what diffrences would it had made in their lives verses what has happen with him not seeing them.

The children are still so young so they will not have any negative affects of seeing their father for the first time after 14 months. They will be extremely joyful to have the attention given to them as long as the experience is pleasant and positive. It is not too late to begin and strengthen the bond between the dad and his children. If the children would have seen their father from birth, the parent child bond could have started much earlier. The dad has missed out on many important developmental stages but the children will not remember growing up without a dad in their first year of life. Most individuals earliest memories start around the ages of 2-3 years of age. Your children will be just fine.


If this has helped, please ACCEPT. Have a great day!!!

The more people involved when the twins meet the dad for the first time, the easier it will be because you can all lean on each other for support. It will be uncomfortable but you will all have each other!!!!
