7 Things to do when You Want a Baby and He Doesn't ...


I hope this article can help you know some things to do when you want a baby and he doesn't.

This is a very difficult spot to find yourself in.2

It can feel heart-wrenching when you're ready for the next step in your relationship and your guy isn't.

Hopefully these things to do when you want a baby and he doesn't can help you to reach a place of agreement as a couple.

1. Don't Push the Topic

I know that it's hard.

But one of the best things to do when you want a baby and he doesn't is to not push him.

It doesn't mean the subject is closed.

You're just giving it a break for awhile so that it isn't such an emotionally charged subject.

Let's say you give it two to three months before you talk about it again.

By then you'll both be calmer and more prepared to discuss it.

2. Let Him Know How You Feel

When you do talk about this subject again, let him know how you feel.2

It's okay to tell him directly that you really want a baby.

It may be a first baby or just adding another child to your family.

Either way, you want to communicate clearly.

Men usually prefer direct communication versus subtle hints.

3. Tell Him the Reasons You Want a Baby

Sometimes it's good to explain why you want a baby.

Maybe you have what I call "the mommy urge" and you feel this need to have a baby.

You may feel it's the right time in your life for a child.2

Maybe you want to take your relationship to the next level because you are so deeply in love with your guy.

Maybe you want to give a sibling to the child you already have.

Tell him the specific reasons you want a baby.
