I am sure there are a lot of people who have been in a similar position to me, whether in my position or that of my partner.
I have been a single parent to DS for most of his life (he is turning 7soon) and DP and I have been together since last August, and were together over a year before that for about 12 months.
I am unexpectedly pregnant (now 24weeks) and the plan is to be living together before the baby comes in September.
DS still sees his dad every second weekend, and up until now any other help I have needed I have asked my mum for.
I am starting to feel like if we are together and bringing another baby into this mix then DP needs to take a little responsibility for DS. Whether that means having him when I am in hospital after the birth of the baby, or even just some nights doing the bath/bed thing.
So I am curious what is/isn't reasonable to expect and how do I broach the subject? I do not want to end up in a position where he. Sees one child as his responsibility and the other as solely mine because I do not believe it should work that way.
