No, you are not being wrong at all. I would completely feel the same way. But it sounds to me that he is acting like most typical 17 year old boys would. He needs to step up and be a man and start taking care of his kid. I feel for you I really do, but this kind of thing seems to happen a lot these days to mothers and even fathers. I guess you can't really force him to help. The only thing you can force him to do is pay child support but Im sure your looking for more than that. You probably want your child to have a father, not a play mate when he has time. Just try talking to him again. Other than that I dont know what else to tell, but I do wish the best for you and your baby! :)

As a young new mommy myself I understand, Im 21 and have a 7 month old. You need some time to yourself, to get out have some harmless fun, relax. This is needed to keep sanity. As far as your boyfriend is concerned... yeah I know he is only 17, but he is a father now and needs to grow up and take responsibility. And remember, he is your boyfriend not your boss. You can hang with whomever you want. Show him how to care for the baby in case you are not around. Then when he knows, put him on baby duty and go have a day with the girls.
