It shouldn't affect your return at all, as long as you both aren't claiming the tax benefits for the child. Only one of you can claim  the exemption for the child, and the tax benefits associated with that.

do the two returns ( yours and his) conflict with each other? IRS will be in touch.

We efiled his return. Then tried to efile mine, and it got rejected because we had put our childs social on both returns. We were confused. We amended his return, mailed it in. We then printed my return, and I mailed it a week after my boyfriend did his. I'm afraid of mine getting rejected again.

You did this correctly, then. Your return might take longer to process than just e-filing, but it should be accepted by the IRS, because two people are no longer claiming the same dependent.
