How to get rid of baby crave?

I hear this question being asked by girls in their late teens and early twenties. And the answer for them is that it won't go away until they actually start trying. Well, what can be said to a financially struggling single 40+ old woman who has nothing but her name? I know how real the crave is because I've heard of 65yr old wanting babies too. And, I've heard of 14 & 15yr olds wanting babies too. I know that we, as women, are hardwired to want to procreate. But how do we give old Mother Nature a reality check when having babies is not feasible?

And, I've also heard that having puppies, kittens and babysitting just makes the urge stronger.

Thanks

  • Get a puppy, seriously. Having something to care for and take your attention can help a lot.

  • Borrow a neice/nephew or close friend's young child, preferably if that child is pre-verbal and has the stomach flu, colic, teething, or was just immunized. Keep this child for an entire weekend.

    After 48 hours of being spewed with various bodily fluids from various orifices, not being allowed to sleep longer than 30 minutes in a stretch, being screamed and tugged on, and trying to keep your sanity, you will give the child back and run the other way.

    (It worked on my ex-husband. One day with a friend's sick toddler and he didn't mention babies again for THREE YEARS!)
