A third approach is for you and your ex to agree to hire a private arbitrator to resolve the issues. The arbitrator is given specific power by the parties in writing to listen to their attorneys argue the case via videoconference and to render a binding decision resolving the visitation issue, again focusing on the reasonableness of each parties' position.
At the absolute least, you should document everything. Copy texts. Save emails. Take photos. Recordings are great (as long as they are made lawfully.)
