Visitation is the noncustodial parent's legal right, but not a legal obligation. You cannot force your ex to maintain a relationship with his child. Presumably your ex is a competent adult and it's up to him whether or not to do what his girfriend says. If he does that's sad for you and your daughter, but there it is. Your problem is with him and not the girlfriend.
Hard to see how you could be out "thousands of dollars" because he fails to observe his visitation schedule, but never mind. It the situation is working a hardship on you and/or your child, you can go back to court to have the schedule modified appropriately. As a minimum, the court can impose a requirement that he give you timely notice when a visit won't take place as scheduled, and to reimburse you for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses you incur as a result. It's then up to you to have a "Plan B" in place to fall back on when and if that happens. Consult local counsel.
