My son was in foster care by this point, and being schlepped all over the place. Children know what they are used to. They are way way way more adaptable than people give them credit for. If kiddo is used to 3 days on 4 days off, he doesn't know any different and will adapt just fine. If you are bottle feeding, there is absolutely no reason to withhold dad's parenting privileges. I would prefer to see dad have 6 hours each evening where mom leaves and dad cares for baby in the same house, instead of that long, just so kiddo sleeps in the same bed every night. But most parents aren't agreeable to that.
