I understand why you think that. I definitely don't think Edward was ever Rosalie's biggest fan. Most of the time he didn't seem to care for her. And, during BD, he seemed very unhappy with her, and rightly so, for interfering with the pregnancy and hoping Bella would die so that she could have the baby (which we pretty much know from Jacob's book, if anyone questions this, please find Jazz Girl's recent post where she quoted the exact parts). But, just as he would hear her thoughts that she wanted Bella to die so she could get the baby, he could probably also tell that she wanted to be a mother and would try to take care of the baby. Now, I agree with you that she probably wouldn't actually be a very good mother. Still, Edward would know that Rosalie would try. When Edward was fighting to save Bella and believed it was a strong possibility she would die, he let Rosalie take the baby. He could have said no, or told Jasper or someone else to take the baby if he really did not want Rosalie near her. And, all of the Cullens live together--all of them would be part of Renesmee's life. I think no matter who Edward left her with, both Esme and Rosalie would be the most involved, including if he specifically left her with Esme. I don't see Esme physically preventing Rosalie from caring for Renesmee.
You might be right. But knowing Edward's character, he wouldn't let Rose have that baby, no matter what. I don't think he was thinking about it when he handed her off to Rose in BD, I think he just needed to get her out of his hands so he could focus on Bella. I can't see him giving her what she wants most, after Bella's dead, if anything out of revenge.
