    My DD1 has a similar situation.
    I split from XH when DD1 was a few months old.
    Met DH when she was 11mths old.

    DH moved in with us 6mths later and DD started calling him daddy all on her own.

    She saw XH once or twice a month and also called him dad.

    She has grown up knowing she has 2 dads and we've always reinforced that to her.

    If you keep reinforcing the same thins to her without differing she will soon know it for herself.

    I think what PP have suggested is the way to go- there are lots of books that can explain it well. It's great that bio dad is on board so that makes it a huge amount easier. I think it really is reinforcement with kids that age, it took my step kids about a year of explaining in very simple terms and gentle reminding. We went more gently so it took a bit longer. Good luck OP, blended families can have difficult dynamics at times.
