And why won't he speak to you now? Sounds like he isn't ready to be fully responsible like you need him to be, but sadly you can't make him act in a way that cares for you and your baby as he is supposed to. I would not contact him and let him come around and then let him know how you feel when he disappears and isn't responsible within the family.
