He won't buy diapers or baby supplies

My bf will not buy diapers or wipes or anything like that. I think he's embarrased.

I need him to help out that way since I spent all my savings on baby gear. The minute I found out I was pregnant I started saving every penny to get baby things.

Anyone else have this issue?

ETA: we're both 16

Tell him to help or you are taking him to court for child support.

No. We intentionally had children and enjoyed buying their things.

I would dump that boyfriend so fast, if I were you. I could not respect, much less be romantically involved with, a man who wouldn't take care of his own kid.

This. Also his reason for not buying it is not out of embarassment.

What then? He got a job when I found out I was pregnant. He has the money.

He's not embarrassed. He doesn't love or respect you or your child enough to grow up and take financial responsibility. He's not going to change.

I didn't deal with this because my husband and I planned to have children and "shared" all expenses because it was our family.

You need to get child support in place asap.

He's a loser and an immature boy.He's embarrassed because he doesn't want everyone to know he has a baby. Still worried about getting pussy and not about you or the kid. I'd be prepared to be a single mom.
