Baby Making Partner (BMP)

Throughout my articles and post you will see the term BMP or Baby Making Partner. I took this term from one of my recommended books, “Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad!: How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months”

Below is an excerpt of what BMP means:

Your BMP is your “baby-making partner”, that special someone you’ve chosen to embark on this journey with.

Now some of you may be thinking that this term is just a way of being overly political correct. For me it has nothing to do with being political correct, but to acknowledge that many men are expecting babies in situations outside of the traditional marriage. You could be having a baby with your girlfriend, surrogate, or someone you are not committed to. Here at Daddy Lama I don’t want to concentrate so much on what your family arrangement is, but rather on “what kind of father you want to be”. I do strongly encourage that whatever the situation is, that you do your best to support your BMP while she bears the bulk of the stress with carrying your child.
