Unfortunatly, that is not something you can control. What your child needs is to have a strong parent. You need to do what is best for your child even if it is on your own. You can't force someone to stay if they don't want to. Right now it hurts, but like the cliche says "time heals all wounds". Plan your life for your child - not your ex. Good luck.
I know how you feel. All you can do is be strong for your baby and let him go. I was with my ex for 6 1/2 yrs and we have 3 kids, two are his and we started dating when my oldest was just 3 m/o. He decided the family thing wasn't for him anymore. I worked full time, went to school full time and still had to come home and clean up and tend to the kids (mind you he wasn't working and still hardly ever kept them). I am much better off now and believe me after a while you will be too!!!
