Go to the Maintenance Court and have this dead-beat dad forced to pay maintenance for his child ; it may help prsuade him not to do this so carelessly to anyone else. Lin's suggestion is excellent --- and try the parenting forum for more suggestions from other parents

Do you perhaps have someone that could look after him say one evening every week, or every 2 weeks. The "break" does one wonders. For you and for him. I leave my little boy one evening a month at his grandparents, then we go out and relax and I pick him up the next morning. It's like a holiday.
