Sounds like BM really shouldn't be a mom at all. Your BF is going to have to hurry up and get paternity established. In MN, an unwed mother usually gets custody of the child. Since paternity is not established yet, the dad has NO rights whatsoever. Once paternity is established, your BF will have a child support order established and he'll need to make sure to request a specific parenting time schedule to go along with it. Then if mother doesn't abide by the court order, you can file a contempt motion or change of custody based on mother not keeping the best interests of the child, or endangering the child, or denying dad his parenting time, etc.  

Just keep the SS informed of anything that you think might be harmful for the child...and hurry up the process of getting paternity established and a hearing to set up child support/parenting time schedule.
