Baby Name Poll Results
Ryder vs. For a future boy?
Hey I’m Ashtyn I’m 16 not pregnant but trying for a son with my boyfriend Skyler. If we have a girl her name will be Summer Rayine and for a boy we like Ryder. What you think?
The Top Baby Name is...
Go to school and keep your legs closed. No 16 year old is ready for kids.
Sorry but you’ll have enough time to think about baby names, all this energy your focusing on baby making should be redirected into something more productive, like school, college, getting a good job, being able to support yourself. Babies change and complicate things.
Poster 1 no need to be rude I know when I’m ready to have kids
Poster 2 school is the last thing on my mind number 1 is blake and our baby
I think your much to young to be trying to get pregnant.
There are young teen moms out there that do a wonderful job raising their children and love them but given the choice they would wait until they are older to have them. Wait until you are finished school (highschool and college) get married, buy a house. Get yourself into a position that you can provide not only love to your child but everything else it needs. Live a little of your own life before you create another. Don’t rush into anything. Talk to your doctor, your parents, your boyfriends parents friends etc. They might give you some insight.
When you are older and have done these things both those names would be great! Good luck!
Blake is Skyler’s midfle name I call him by it
This is a joke......right?
Please please please do not try to have kids at this age. I had my daughter was I was 17...when I thought I was ready to have kids, and nothing went right.My friends quickly decided that I was no fun to hang around with anymore because I always had a screaming baby with me and I was always too tired to do anything, and I was late in Graduating from High School, late in going to College and the father decided he was too young to be a father and ran out. The chances of you becoming a single mother are a lot greater at this age.
I am 25 now with a beautiful 8 year old daughter who I love with all my heart, but the road has been long and hard. Please, really think about the situation. You have the whole rest of your life to have kids, but only this short time to have the best time of your life with your friends, and to experience college.
I Ashtyn Jade and boyfriend Skyler Blake know when to have kidd
^ Read what the poster wrote before you. She said she thought she was ready too. She was not, she wishes she had waited. You will wish that too. At least make sure you talk to your doctor and parents before you make this choice so that you are taking care of your body while you are pregnant and because it will probably fall on your parents to support you when things don’t work out the way you think they will.
When I was 16, I was still very focused on school, poetry, and athletics. I figured out what I wanted to do with my life when I was 16...don’t let yourself miss out on opportunities because you want a baby RIGHT NOW. You have your whole life to have kids!
I’m 19 now (any my boyfriend is 16, almost 17) and I couldn’t even imagine having kids yet. We want to, in the future, when we are married and have a home and are financially stable. Hopefully about mid-20s.
Live your life first, for the sake of your baby and your happiness.
I honestly do not care what parents think this is my choice not theirs
My happiness is my child
Out of curiosity, have you seen the MTV show 16 & Pregnant?
Are ANY of them happy at the end of the episode?
Enough said, I think.
It is your choice not theirs but the more people you talk to about this the more opinions and guidance you will receive.
No I don’t watch the show 16 and pregnant never have never will
I love when teenagers skip school and come on this site looking for drama! So immature and annoying! Clearly you can’t handle being a parent yet. Being a Mom is a 24/7 thankless job hard job. Not all fun and dressing the baby cute and picking a fun baby name. Grow up...you wouldn’t be on here posting this silly stuff if you were ready to have a baby.
HA! never seen 16 and pregnant YEAH RIGHT!!!!!
How do you plan to pay for a child now? I bet you expect your parents to help you and yet you say it’s not your decision and if you think you can do it without their help you’re very naive. It’s not like having a puppy or anything. Once you have a baby that’s you’re whole life. Doon’t you want to experience some time just for you and your boyfriend first (moving in together, getting married, saving for holidays) without such a huge responsibility? Even though it is ultimitely your choice it will affect everyone in your life. Don’t you want to wait until you can provide the best possible life for your baby once you have a career, money and more life experience? Don’t be selfish and immature.
It’s true I never seen 16 as nd pregnant
Wow, I’m sure this is a fake poll but it sure has wound everyone up
I’m not immature I truley do want this baby
If you truly want this baby that proves you’re immature - you obviously don’t understand what being a mother takes.
To be a mom you have to love your baby and you have to want it and, plan it I do all that
Ask yourself some of these questions. Answer them for yourself and have your boyfriend answer them too. Discuss them with your boyfriend. Write them all down and think about it.
-Why do you want to have a baby?
-Do you want to have a baby or is your partner, parent or someone pressuring you?
-How will a child affect your relationship with your partner? Are you both ready to become parents?
-Are you prepared to raise a child alone if for some reason things don’t work with your partner? Who will help you?
-How will a baby affect your education or career plans?
-Do you and your partner have religious or ethnic differences? Have you discussed how you’ll handle these differences and how they might affect your child?
-What will you do for child care?
-Are you prepared to parent a child who is sick or has special needs?
-Are you ready for your free time to become limited? Are you ready to give up sleeping late on weekends? Or find child care when you want to go out without your baby?
-Do you enjoy spending time with children? Can you see yourself as a parent?
-What did you like about -your childhood? What didn’t you like? What do you want for your child?
-Are you ready to be selfless?
-Are you financially prepared?
-Are you ready for things to get a little more complicated? (a simple trip to the grocery store now requires a carseat, stroller, diaper bag with diapers, wipes a change of clothes, toys, etc, etc, etc)
-Are you ready for the changes of pregnancy and breastfeeding? (The effects of pregnancy can be harder on your body when you are so young)Is your boyfriend ready to support you?
-Are you willing to do the work that being a mother/father takes?(Being a mother is one of the toughest jobs there is.You are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.You are required to be a teacher, a doctor, a psychologist, a clown and a disciplinarian all in one day)
-Are you responsible?
-What are your long-term goals?Think about where you see yourself in five, ten or fifteen years.What are your goals and dreams?
-What will this baby add to your life?
Can you afford a baby? Go to the store and see how much formula and diapers are.
I’m not asking if your parents can afford a baby because they should have nothing to do with raising it. If you have to rely on them for food and shelter then you are not ready. They already raised a kid and they shouldnt be stuck with a baby because you decided you wanted one. That is truly the most selfish thing a person can do.
Do you or your partner have a job? How long have you been together?
I know i’m ready
Yes we have jobs and we ben together 4 years
I know I don’t know you and your situation and I know that you by no means need permission from me to have a child but I am really not convinced from reading these comments and your replies that you know what you’re letting yourself in for and I will never believe that a sixteen year old can truly be ready for the biggest responsibilty you will have in your life. You probably think we’re all being mean, and some are, but most of us would just like to know that you’re really putting some thought into this and won’t rush into it. Hopefully something someone will say today will make you reconsider and delay this step awhile. We don’t want you to regret it and you have years ahead for this stuff, why rush it and make it harder on yourself???
So, you’re 100% independent of your parents and you have a place to live that’s not with your parents and you can support yourself with much to spare?
Regret my baby never when I misscarried our first baby it was the saddest day in my life
We are planning to live together soon
I’m sorry to hear of your miscarrage. I don’t think people mean regret your baby they mean regret the decision to have a baby so young. Live together first, get married, take a trip together, save some money.
I didn’t mean you would regret you’re baby, I meant you might regret not waiting like a previous poster said and my sister (who was 20 when she had her daughter) agrees with. They both love their daughters but wish they’d been older when they had them
Thank you for showing understanding previous poster it means alot that you cared about my misscarriage
I would never regret having my baby young
I know how you feel...if that helps. My best friend is preg and young. When she askd about geting preg I told her exactly what I am going to tell u. It is your decision not anyone elses...your baby not theirs. I’m glad u and your bf are wanting a baby and not just having one by suprise
Thank you previous poster
I’m sure if you do go through with this your baby will be happy and healthy and with help from your parents or not. I’m not worried about the baby. But what a shame for you that you’ll have no experience of adult, independent life without also having the responsibilty of a child. Good luck whatever you decide
I had my son when I was twenty one. My husband (fiance at that time) and I were so excited about graduating and finally getting married. I had my son and I never got to travel to Spain or have the wedding I had been planning. I love my son but now I have to wait to do all the things I thought I would be able to do by now. I could not imagine having a child at 16.
You can’t support a child on minimum wage, you can barely support yourself.
My baby will motivate me my entire life I\’ll give it all I never had
Then you’ll have to work so hard. With everything so expensive you’re not going to be able to afford nice things. There’s a very real chance that you’ll have to go on government assistance. You won’t have time for school unless you can afford daycare. Babies are sooo expensive and yet people think they aren’t. Diapers, cribs, toys, medicine, hospital bills. You better hope you have insurance or you’re screwed.
I’m prepared to work hard and be a good mom to my baby
The best thing you can give to your baby is the wisdom gained from life experience. I’m sorry but I can’t see how you can have enough of that at 16. If you have a girl, how would you feel (having just worked your backside off for 16 years with almost no time for yourself) if she turned to you and said I want to have a baby now! You’ll tell me it will be her choice and you’re right, but you’ll have to help and support her too and after all the hard work, money and love you’ll have put into raising her wouldn’t you be hoping for more from her?
If my daughter has a child young i’ll love her and help her
You are very naive
You may love and help her but I’m sure you’d be disappointed. I’m not judging you, just asking you to think about it
Naive why because teen pregnancy in my eyes isn’t a crime?
If my daughter was a teen mom I’d be happy
I am 16 years old too. I got preg not to long ago and lost my baby. look, i can promise you that you are not ready. my baby was not a mistake at all, but i am thankful i dont have one right now. go to college get a good job so you will be able to support your baby when you have one.
Your diffrent than me in some way then previous poster
I’m not the poster who called you naive and I don’t necessarily agree with her but I can see what she is trying to say, I think. Teen pregnancy is not a crime but f you’re actually planning a baby and this isn’t a fake poll, you have to be realistic about how expensive and how much work a baby will be. If you think it will be easy and perfect and you and your boyfriend will not argue (mainly cos of tiredness) and you won’t feel like your missing out on other things and your child will never do anything that will disappoint you (you will still love and support them to be sure) but they will make decisions you won’t want them too then you are being unrealistic.
If you’re daughter was ateen mum you’d be happy?! - how immature!
Think about how much it costs. How many sleepless nights you will have. cant go out with your friends and party like teens do. you will have to sit at home with your baby. and you never know what the future holds you and your boyfriend now might not work out in the future. having a baby can add alot of stress to a relationship..
Yes unlike other parents who scold thier daugters for getting pregnant I’d be happy anf help her prepare
My mother would be so dissapointed in me.
I’m ready to give up sleep and friends for my baby I don’t really have many friends to begin with
You are either naive and stupid or naive and a liar if you think you would not be upset about your daughter becoming a teen mom - you can still love her, support her and help her prepare but if you would not be happy for her - how ridiculous. I told my Mam I was pregnant when I was 19 and I was scared cos I knew she’d be disappointed but she still helped me loads and I’d prefer that to her being happy because then I’d feel like she had had no other hopes for me. "unlike other parents who scold their daughters" sounds like you’re suggesting my Mam is a bad mother for doing and that hugely offends me.
I’m not naive I’m just saying what I feel I’d be happy if my daughter had a baby as as a teen if it’s with a man she loves
To you it’s nonesense to me, it’s true
How much do you think a baby cost. I would like to know what you think it cost to raise a baby.
50,000 a year
Ok, I know you’ve probably heard this same thing a million times. I had triplet girls Marie, Ashley, and Hannah when I was 17 years old and only a junior in highschool. I had to drop out of school and had to get a tudor to help me finally graduate at age 19, a full year after I was supposed to. I just recently finished an online collage program and only now, at age 27. 10 years later, am I ready to have more kids. Now I am pregnant with my soon to be son. Just telling you, teenage parenthood is a constant struggle....
I know it’s a struggle i’m not glamourising it.
You are an idiot. An immature, uneducated, unrealistic idiot. You do not have any idea what it takes to raise a child.Unless you have had a child who you are completley responsible for, you cannot not have any idea what is involved. And, no, babysitting and helping to look after a younger sibling doesn’t count. I mean totally and utterly 100% responsible for. You have no idea what you’re talking about.
You don’t know me or my life to be saying that
So you are saying that you HAVE had a child that you are totally responsible for. Financially, emotionally and everything else that’s involved. Of course you haven’t. Why? Because you are a little girl wanting to play mommies and daddies. Real life doesn’t work like that and one day, when/if you grow up, you will understand what that means.
I just want to be a mommy loving and enjoying my baby
Get a doll or a dog.
I have 3 puppies Alexa,Nivea and Aiden
You’re even dumber than I first thought. And that’s saying something!!!!!!
So Mercedes, we meet again. People, please add Ashtyn to the long line of names this girl says she is, currently-
