I don't know how long you were with the guy that got you pregnant but I personally think a month after your baby's born is too soon to be dating. I would put all relationships on hold for a while and just focus on your newborn, if he feels the same way he'll be patient and wait till your ready to start dating.

Your baby has to come first no matter what. Your hormones and emotions are still settling down, so now is not the time to make big chancges like starting a relationship. Tell him how you feel, maybe suggest putting the relationship on hold for a while. If he realy cares about you and your baby he will understand or at least accept it. If he doesn't then he is not worth your time.

I wasn't nearly as young as you, (I was 21) but after I had my daughter and her father and I broke up when she was 2 1/2, I haven't dated since. She's now 5 and it's the best decision I ever made. The bond between us is so, so strong. I wouldn't change my decision for anything. Now that she's successfully reached school, I will now consider a date in the future.
