  • you can't make him want to see your child. i'd be filing for child support asap if you haven't already.

  • Sometimes men are not comfortable with little newborns. Give him time. Mine wouldn't have anything to do with our kids until they could walk and talk.

  • Newborns are high maintenance he might not want the responsibility. Plus he couldn't enjoy his time with the two other kids if he had to cart the baby around the whole time. Men are afraid of babies....

  • No he hasn't. He has stood up YOUR expectations of him. Father's usually can't handle the newborn stage. Sorry about that. :(

  • I would wait a little longer & see how things go. Like the PPs said, guys just aren't into the newborn stage- they want to play with the babies, KWIM?
