  • Just keep talking about it with him maybe he will start seeing your point of view. If not then be patient and wait. You can't really MAKE him want another baby. =(

  • It has to be a decision made together, you can't force him to have a baby right now. Just be thankful for your four boys and wait for God's timing.... and for your husband's timing since he will be takin care of baby too

  • You can't make someone want a baby. Try to see why he doesn't, maybe having 4 kids already is a big enough strain, financially and whatnot. Or having time for just you and him. It's gotta be tough with such a big family. What I do (I have 2 and we're done) is I take pleasure in watching my friends and family members have babies. I can hang out with the baby, but when all's said and done I can get home to my own family that I can take care of without adding more because I'm baby crazy or anything like that. Hope I helped a little.
