There are no easy formulas about how to deal with this sort off situation. Basically, it's good for your son to consistently feel loved by his parents. And it's fine for him to feel love from others, such as the new partners both you and his mother have found. He's a bit young to understand the situation except in the simplest terms. And when he visits you, while he shouldn't be made to feel neglected as he might if you were pre-occupied with the other children or your gf, surely it should feel fine for him to feel part of a normal family setting, behaving nomally ?
