  • He helped get you that little darling...he doesnt need to get out of his responsibilities scot-free! Talk to him nicely, explain to him that you need diapers, formula and split the doctor bills. Take him with you to the doctors office, to pick up the medicine and actually split the bills with him. If you buy diapers, do the same, split it right then and he sees your not trying to use him and/or the baby for money.
    Dont get ugly with him until he gives you reason to be..ok? Once you start that fight, you can never go back...the damage will be done and unmendable and it will get worse. So be nice, talk to him, take him with you every chance you get. You cant ever tell that "FRIEND" may be the best thing that ever happened to you beside the beautiful baby you both have...Good Luck.

  • Trust me being nice will not get you any help, you should just tell him he needs to give you so much everytime he gets paid cause you need more help, or you gonna have to put him on child support. The ones that are nice, don't get enough $. You gotta do what u gotta do. It's that simple. Good luck.
