Hi,

I'm having my baby late June and I'm honestly very in love with my baby, however; I find myself in a position where the father and I were only in a very short term relationship. He is still in shock that I'm having his baby because I didn't tell him until the second trimester as I did not want to have him pressure me into making any decisions which I may have regretted later.

The baby's father is actually a very nice person but we were too different to make a relationship work, and although he would like to be involved in the baby's life, he is not sure what he will be able to contribute, so I will be the primary parent. It looks like it may be a co-parenting situation which I am okay with but I would like to know from more experienced mums how their co-parenting situations work and how you coped with a newborn while being single?
