  • most men that havent been a part of it up to birth wont be after wards but there are a few that change thier ways when they see the baby being born but i wouldnt count on it just to be safe... although i hope for you that he does!!!

  • ASK him to help you. Don't wait for him to offer. Men often don't think about such things. The next time you're shopping, walk into the baby section. Ask him if he could buy some things that the baby needs.

    You guys didn't duscuss finances for the baby when you got pregnant?

  • Most likely he won't help. I will tell you that with my boyfriend when I was pregnant with our first got only a baby book for the baby and that was more for me still. After the baby was born he was getting more things. It just depends. Some guys don't see the point of buying things early but a lot that don't buy things don't because they aren't reliable.

  • I think that the two of you need to revisit why you decided to have a child together.
