    Your daughter is a baby now, but when she is old enough to understand what is going on do you want her to hear what your father is saying?  Passive aggressive approach: screen you calls and if you decide to pick up the phone have an excuse to get off really quickly (or call back when you know he will want to keep it short, like during his favorite  tv show or a ball game).  Continue until and unless the screaming/personal attacks end.  Assertive approach: Tell him that his comments about your parenting skills are hurtful and you will not expose your children to that.  He should be able to read between the lines.
