  • I personally wouldnt just because..who has time for dating when you have a baby that young lol...but hey if you feel you have the energy for it then more power to ya!

  • I agree with the above posters. Also, my advice is... Be up front and honest about having a baby. You might not want to just blurt it out, but he should know right away. And I made the mistake of not thinking about babysitting before I started dating (dumb, I know), but definately think about who will watch him/her while you go out. :)

  • honestly... sounds rather tacky/low class.

    gee wiz... be a mom... focus on this new little life.
    there will be years and years in the future for dating... right now your CHILD should come first... not your love life.

  • The choice is totally yours. Congratulations on your precious new baby and good luck..... By your question, I am guessing that you seek to not be judged wrongly from others'. People have the right to think whatever they want as do you and I. It really doesn't matter what they think, just follow your heart and your gutt. We only have one life to live here, live it for you and enjoy every moment you can...

  • If you think you have the energy, time and actually want to be away from the baby to date, I don't see anything wrong with it. Personally, I wouldn't have when my kids were in their first 1-2 years, but that's because I never wanted to be away from them and I had no energy really. lol
