7 Telltale Signs He Wants To Have A Baby

As complicated as you may think men are, they’re actually quite simple to figure out when it comes to identifying the telltale signs he wants to have a baby

If you’ve been in a long-term relationship with a man, you’re most likely starting to think about creating a family; with him. You’re contemplating the possibility of making those thoughts become a reality with the man you’re in love with.

However, before mentioning the topic over Sunday breakfast, you want to make sure he feels the same. On the other hand, you want to avoid any awkwardness or discomfort by being cautious about mentioning a topic you’re not quite sure will be reciprocated.

The last thing you want to do is freak him out by talking about babies before he’s ready.

For some men, it’s quite easy to make a serious decision like that. For others, it takes a little bit longer to reach the maturity or comfortability levels to bring another human into this life. It’s natural.

Remember, we can’t all grow at the same pace. We certainly don’t have the same goals and dreams. Thank goodness we’re all a little bit different in most aspects.

So if you are too afraid to straight up ask your man about making babies, keep a lookout for these 7 telltale signs he wants to have a baby:

1. He’s very in tune with your monthly cycle

Remember, a man who isn’t remotely interested in having a baby wouldn’t even think to care about when your new cycle starts each month.

In fact, it may even gross some men out to know such things. However, a man who’s interested in starting a family with you will notice your slight mood changes, he may even ask you if you’ve started your period yet. Take it as a good sign that he sees a definite future with you.

2. Using protection during sex becomes less important

It’s important to take into consideration that, as a couple who’s been dating for quite some time or even married, that you do tend to use protection in the form of condoms less frequently.

It’s a whole different story if you decide to stop using birth control pills though. Always let your partner know before you decide to do so. It’s only the right thing to do.

However, if you’re searching for possible signs that he wants to have a baby, inform him of the fact that you’re not using protection during sex and scope his reaction.

Does he seem panicked or concerned? If not, a grown, responsible man will most likely have future plans in mind.

Remember to establish yourself in a loving, committed relationship before planning on being a little bit careless in this department.

As much as it seems like a great idea having a baby with someone you love, you need to ensure that they love you in return; enough to stick around if you happen to fall pregnant with his baby.

3. He’s fascinated by you when you hold a baby

Whether your sister just gave birth or you have a friend with a cute, newborn baby, it’s quite important to observe him while he’s observing you.

If you enjoy children and find them quite adorable, enough to want to pick up and interact with, chances are he’s going to observe you quietly to see if you’ll be a good mom (that’s if he’s interested in being a dad).

If not, the fact that you’re playing with a child wouldn’t phase him one bit. Always look at his facial expressions when searching for signs he wants to have a baby.

4. He tells you on a regular basis what a great mother you’ll be

This particular tip is quite an obvious sign he wants to have a baby, with you. If a man compliments you on the possibility of you being a great mother someday, it means he’s thought of you in that sense and feels comfortable enough to tell you what he thinks of having children with you; even if he doesn’t mention you in the sentence. It’s an even better sign if this type of compliment flatters you, which means that if an “accident” does occur, there will be no reason to run away or face the truth on your own. You’ll have him right there by your side.

5. Talking about children comes into the conversation more often

Do you ever find yourself relaxing with your partner, only to venture into the “baby making” conversation? Even more so, you seem to end up discussing that topic quite often these days.

Perhaps he positively comments on a baby commercial or jokes around about having a baby? These are all hints, regardless of how insignificant they may seem to you.

Remember, a man who isn’t slightly interested in having a baby wouldn’t enter into “baby making” conversations with you or mention babies in his sentences.

6. He goes out of his way to make your family part of his own

When a man is truly in love, to the point where he sees himself having children with you, he’s going to want to do everything in his power to involve your family in his life.

If this means going on hunting trips with your dad or engaging in long conversations with your mom, maybe even inviting your sibling to a game’s night. One of the most subtle signs of him wanting to have a baby is involving himself with your family.

7. He enjoys interacting with babies and children

If a man is interested in having his own children, he’s going to have no problem interacting with other’s children.

Thus, if you notice your man being actively involved with children at a party or interested in interacting with his friends’ baby, it means he could be ready to have the pitter patter of little feet in his life.

One of the best ways to know for sure though is to ask him directly. It wouldn’t hurt too much to have an open and honest conversation with him about having children. The answer could potentially surprise you.

Bonus tip: He talks about being a good dad someday

Of course, an obvious sign of him wanting to have a baby is mentioning to you that he thinks he’ll be a good dad someday. Remember, a man who wants to be a dad will mention it at some point in your relationship. If not, there’s absolutely no need for him to mention his parenting abilities or voice certain concerns relating to him creating a baby.

It’s important to take into consideration that a man will tell you what he wants and what he simply isn’t interested in by downright telling you. It’s up to you to listen if you want to. Some women tend to believe what they really want to believe in order to avoid the truth.

They get so caught up in what they think he’s saying when he’s really telling her everything she needs to know in simple English. Don’t be that woman.

Men are a pretty straight-forward type of creatures. They usually tell it like it is or will throw quite obvious signs of what they’re trying to say. It’s up to us, as women, to listen.

In this particular case, a brooding man will be less careful about getting you pregnant, more interested in engaging in conversation with you about having children and become quite excited about others having babies.

When trying to figure out the signs he wants to have a baby, the best way to know for sure, though, is to ask him.

If you’re unsure, save yourself the agony of trying to figure it out by simply asking him. Not only will you have a clear answer, but it could potentially kick-start your efforts to have a baby with him.
