ANSWER #2 of 13

Aloha brooklon ,

I am thrilled that you have found the love of your life and that you guys are thinking about having a child together really I am. However your age and the current situation does concern me a little bit. It is not so much your age, but more that you are not in a position to suport your selves and a child.

You already have love and so you have your hole lives a head of you, I would wait until you are married settled and have good jobs to have a child. If you are going to be a mother and father to some one you might as well do it right and give your child the best life that you can in all ways.I am pleased to hear that you will be loving parents..that much I am sure of..You seem to really love eachother and so it will rub off on your kids. which is great. I sujest home schooling rather then public schools (getting a bit ahead sorry.)

You guys should wait enjoy being young and in love together work on your relationship if you think that it is strong in time it is only going to be stronger. These are all skills that will help to raise your own childern and what not you have a hole life time to play the role of parents all I am saying is that given the situation you should maybe wait.

Good Luck and best of wishes to you. Peace and God be with you both.

What do I need to have a baby

ANSWER #5 of 13

Dear brooklon,
children need good role models and unless you are fully educated and have a good career you do not set the example you may desire. Wanting a child at your age can signify that things are lacking in your life. You may be feeling the need to be need more. So having a child just because you want one at your age can be a selfish act. Watching a child for 2 weeks is not watching a child for 20 years. It's not something you want to try...because if you are unable to do it you can't send the baby back? You are definitely not ready and need to wait till you a career and stable ground.
Sue...good luck

baby not eating
ANSWER #6 of 13

WAIT! I can't tell you what to do, but seriously think about it!
Do you know how much baby things cost? A pack of diapers cost $15, and lasts about 1-2 days. A can of formula costs $20 and last about 3 days, if that. Bottles, wipe,car seat, crib, clothes, etc. A baby is 24/7. I know you said you have experience with children. But, 2 weeks is nothing compared to a lifetime! You hardly sleep, your always exhausted.. trying to do anything with a baby is hard work, not impossible, but extremely hard. They cry all hours through the night. They demand your love and attention ALL the time. Im 18 and have a 7 month old daughter. They are hard work, but if you have support from your/his family .. it will be very helpful! I wish you luck in your decision! =)

Having another baby
ANSWER #8 of 13

okay, 16 is a younge age to be having a baby, at least wait until your out of high school and have a job. cause babys means you need money, b/c of diapers, formula and all that kinda stuff. I can't wait to have kids myself, but I want to make sure I get out of college and have a good job before I do.
I hope things work out for you and if you have anymore questions feel free to funmail me.
