There is no way that you can see the child without the permission of the parents. Some states have a grandparents law, but the plight to get visitation rights is time consuming and expensive and will make the parents mad--IF you live in one of those states. Have you thought about talking to one of them and requesting a visitation schedule?

Are you mobile? I wonder if a neutral setting would help, say meet at a park, or something?

You could also offer to babysit for the baby so that mom could have some time off. Or if you are able, offer to sit at a highly reduced rate while she works.

"refuses to allow my son to bring hsi son to visit without her coming along"...

Is their custody situation spelled out in legal papers? If not, then your son needs to get to an attornye. If they are, then what does the visitation schedule say? Does it specifically say that she can decide who gets to spend time with the little guy when the dad has him? If not, then she really doesn't have any say in the matter.

I agree with the person above me. If the father of the baby has unsupervised visitation and nothing is stipulated in the visitation papers as to who can or cannot see the baby, then technically she can't do anything about you seeing the child if the father wants it to happen. And if she keeps pressing the issue, he needs to talk to an attorney about it.
