Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

It is understandable! Since you have been babysitting your cousin, you have developed a natural attachment for babies and they have become a part of your life. Hence you feel incomplete and insecure without one. However you are too young to conceive now and have your own baby.

You could still baby sit as a job in your free time but going for a full time baby is a huge responsibility. Also believe me it is a huge financial drain. I would advice you go for some counseling and you and your boyfriend both be a part of it. Hope this helps. Take care!
