How to Tell If a Baby Is Yours Without Doing a DNA Test

Updated on August 24, 2018

Clive Williams is an internet researcher and writer on many genres. He has a BSc. Degree in Information Systems.

Having a baby is one of the most joyous and celebrated thing for many new and even seasoned breeders. That sweet bundle of joy is just so adorable and just begging to be kissed pampered and cared for. But as they say, all good thing shall come to an end. Well, that is if you just found out that the baby you just got and bought all those nice stuff for, tiny chimees, pampers, crib and all the pocket burning things that a baby will need, and on top of that, you even proposed to your spouse telling her she is the woman of your life and you are so glad she is the woman she is. Then the block of ice lands right on the top of your head. Boom! news flash, your spouse made out with the guy that sells turkey legs at the Disney Epcot theme park and maybe the child is not yours.

It can either be a moment of joy or a sigh of relief when you find out the baby is or isn't yours. As well as it can be very heartbreaking for some fellows. This happened to a black man named Joe Greene. His wife got pregnant and delivered to him a full blown Asian child of Chinese genetics. Both had no recollection of them having any Chinese descendants. He decided to contest being the father of the child and actually did the DNA test and i guess you know the result even before i finish typing this line. As Maury would say "You are definitely NOT the father of the child." Well we all know how the ladies love to deny their infidelities and cry and bring down the whole nine yards. In the end she admitted to the affair, it seemed like when she went out on Thursday nights to have Chinese, she literally did have Chinese!


Judging The Book By The Color

So many men in today's society are fathering children that were given to them under false pretense. The term for this is misattributed paternity. Misattributed patternity is when a child’s putative father is not the child's biological father. Overall, the incidence of misattributed paternity ranges from about 1% to 2%, though it may be considerably higher in certain populations. So how on God's cheating earth does this misattribute happen? Well, for a definite answer you would have to speak to the lady that did all the "hanky panky" with her spouses. But let us look at situations that we can see with our own eyes. A white woman has a white husband and sleeps with him. She then ends up sleeping with a black man and gets pregnant. The husband is ecstatic at the news of pregnancy, but when the child arrives on earth he is darker than when the train lights fail in a tunnel. The wife gives him some hogwash story about her ancestors 400 years ago had been involved with runaway slaves and so the negroid DNA was always in their genetics. Lets be real, there is a very tiny minute slim small microscopic chance of this being true, but 99% of the time the man has just been had. He has now become a statistic in the misattributed paternity.

He as Grown a Bit, Now He Looks Like Jack and I Am Bill

When a child is just born, you cannot really say who the baby actually looks like until nearly a year of growth and development. You however have very convincing mothers that right after the baby is born will tell the joyous father that the baby has his beautiful eyes and hair like his! Except for ethnicity or birth defect traits, you cannot tell who a baby looks like right after birth or the first couple of months as the babies features are still being molded. In other words his DNA is still giving him a little makeover. So the best bet is to take a good look at the child when he reaches the ripe young age of one and see who he really looks like. If you see him having that perky corner smile like your good friend jack and that bent out toe like jack. Chances are that Jack may have been more than just a good buddy to you, he may have also been a very good buddy to your wife.

He Behaves Just Like Your Boss

You should always ask your mother how you behaved as a child, as chances are that is how your child may behave when he is small. But note that this is not always the case, as he may just take on his own child persona or may behave like his mother when she was a baby or toddler. But if you notice that he has much of the character type as your boss at the office, ordering you around and telling you to go get is stuff and when he speaks to you his hand is akimbo. You better start thinking differently. Now that you have questions regarding poor little junior, some things begin to flash to your mind that you thought didn't have much significance. You remember one of your office parties, around three years ago when you introduced your boss to your wife and they became so chummy. Two months later you got a raise that you had been asking about for four years! Chances are that if child acts a bit bossy, he me just be the child of you boss.

Let The Feet Do The Talking

You know you can tell a lot about a person by simply observing their feet. When the child is able to walk and balance properly, chances are that his toe and feet architecture are now ready to read in-order to know the ancestral roots of your child. Lets look at this from a genealogical point of view. This piece was taken from an article i wrote called "How To Know Everything About Someone By Looking At Their Toes"

Types of Toes

Okay, if you really want to first find out about a person ethnicity or even your own. Take a good look on that persons toe see if it falls into any one of the listed categories below.

  1. Egyptian Toes: The Egyptian genetics make up of toes comes with very strong and tall big toe. The big toe is the tallest of the group of five. From the right side of the individual, the toes then gradually descends in length forming a 45 degree angle.
  2. Roman Toe: The genetically make up of these toes are that the Big toe along with the adjacent two are all tapered off at the same length. The Big Toe is not that tall either. The little toe and the adjacent toe the follows a slight slope pattern.
  3. Greek Toe: The Big Toe is actually shorter than the second toe, Then the third toe is lightly shorter than the big toe and it then forms a descending like a 45 degrees.
  4. Germanic Toe: Longer Big toe and then all other 4 toes are shorter but all four are the same length. Forming what seems to be a strainer!
  5. Celtic Toe:Down, Up, down, down, same. That just about sums up what looks like a jigsaw puzzle with the Celtic toe.

If you find that the child's mom has Celtic toes and you also have Celtic toes but Gerald the German across the road has Germanic toe and somehow your child has Germanic toes you know who has been seeing the neighbor a bit too often.

You Are Not the Father!
You Are Not the Father!

The point of the matter is that your child must take some form of attribute from you simply because you gave him his DNA. That's right, no matter how genius or stupid, athletic or even if you are a sumo wrestler. There must be some traits that he has taken from you. But despite all the obvious signs that i mentioned above, there are several other ways that you can prove little bill isn't yours without doing an actual DNA test.

This is actually a DNA test kit sold at Walmart and other stores that you can buy and take home to give little bill his true father. However the identigene has a multi-trait paternity calculator which looks at the ABO/RH blood type, eye color and even the type of ear lobe. What the blood type calculator does is to determine the correct parent of the child, whether it be mother or father. It does this by looking at the blood type of the child and then looking at the blood type of mother and alleged father. So if the child's blood is B and the mothers is O, the father can only have a blood type of B or AB for the child to be related to the father.

Conception Calculator
Yes, there is actually something called a conception calculator. This is supposed to determine who little bill's dad is based upon certain plugged in criteria.

Conception Calculator estimates probable conception dates from Birth, LMP and Due dates.
These are probable conception dates based on an average 28 day cycle.

To use the calculator:
Choose either the Due Date / Birth Date
or the First Day of Last Menstrual Period,
Enter the date, and
Click the 'Calculate' button.

First Day of Last Menstrual Period: November 25, 2014
Probable Date of Ovulation: December 9, 2014
Possible Dates of Conception: December 5 to December 13, 2014

Due Date: September 1, 2015 (40 weeks)

So with all this result here, the lady will now go back and figure who she did the hanky panky with during the possible conception dates. The thing is, if she was on a roll, like a counting roll, say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. That is quite a pickle there as any one of these numbers could be the child's dad.

Do you believe that you are your father's child?

See results

Well, after watching such a dramatic video, you now see how important it is to ascertain if your child is really yours. The above methods are ways you can doubt that your child is yours. But if you really want to be sure. Nothing beats a good DNA test. So to all the fathers out there who were given other men children as their own and are still living up to fatherhood, kudos to you and your blessings will multiply. To all those ladies out there who go around bed hopping and having unprotected sex and then raffling your child, stop that practice please. Have some dignity so that when you are pregnant, there is just no second guessing.

      I don't know if toes can reveal who the father is without knowing about whether the gene (or genes) involved are dominant or recessive, but I found that part very interesting. I have Greek toes. Oh Oh! My father was not Greek. (I have no idea what kind of toes he had.)

      Hey Rob, if you want to take a DNA test to prove the child is yours she cannot say no. Get a court order for it to be done. Too many men fathering children not there own while the real daddies out here drinking rum and sitting on white sand beaches.

      My first child from Mother #1 is definitely mine. He has my whole the hell are you looking at face and her eyes and then the face when he cries....he looks like his mother. He is stubborn like the both of us and talkative like me.

      My second child is unborn but I know the mother #2 cheated on me while we dated, during we dated, when we moved in together and now definitely after. How I know- she pushes me away, kicks me out everyday, I never once Dead able to hold her, kiss her belly or talk to the baby in the womb which points out it isn't mine. We didn't have sex until our third date and she was 2 weeks late in her period. Everyone knows when a woman is late in her period she pregnant, and it wasn't me.

      Hello Aysha Khan,

      The dates you provided does not say much. Did you use a condom on any one of those dates you gave?

      If an egg is present and ready to be fertilized, the woman will become pregnant. In general, the fastest sperm can swim to the woman's eggs within 30 minutes. Slower sperm take up to several days to reach the eggs. On average, sperm will only live in the female reproductive organs for about 48 hours to 72 hours.

      So you have been with hubby several times and your x once in that close proximity to your menrtusal. It is more likely that if you are pregnant the baby maybe your hubby's. My advice is to always be sure by sticking to one partner or use protection!

      @candy, quite simple. You are the potential grandma so as soon as the child is born and you spend time withe the child, simply get a home dna test done using IDENTIGENE DNA Paternity Test Collection Kit.

      I am 55 years old and supposedly I have a child that is 34 years old.From the very day the whore that I was married to told me she was pregnant I have been asking who is the father?To this day I still do not believe that I am the father to this kid.Without knowing whether or I am his father or not I have never emotionally bonded with him.Now two grandkids are involved.They all think that they are some how entitled to part of my assets.

      I am financially secure and could make them as well but at the same time I would make them earn their own wealth.They believe I should pay for these grandkids colleges when it comes time and how I should include them all into my will.But at the same time these red necks refuse to do any DNA testing.That I am some kind of ass because I do not believe the whore that is this childs mother.

      Here she is a known whore that was with at least 6 different men tht I know of during the time that we where married.I of the men was my boss during the time that I was in the military.I would be sent out to the field on manuvuers and the whore that was my wife would move the back stabbing low life little prick into my house and into my bed.

      The anger and hatred I have for this whole family because of the actions of one fucking whore is well deserved.Because of her actions he does not have a father.The kids do not have a grand father but know one blames this skanky ass alley whore.This some how is all my fault.I paid child support for 16 years on a bastard that I never and still do not believe is my child.

      So Lena you fucking skank ass alley whore I hope you die the slowest most painfullest death that a human being as gone through and in the process you should come clean on who the father really is and then give a DNA test to back it up. Because let's face it there is a good chance that you don't even actually know who is the real father.

      As a final note if I found out tomorrow that I am actually the father and grandfather of this family I still would not be able to bound with any of them or woul I want to be a part of their lives .All of that has been tainted to the point of no return.But, I would see to it that they could get their education if they kept their grades up.And I would see to it that that their financial needs would be taken care of after my passing.The way everthing is now my stepfamily will be very well taken care of.So Jesse and Lena my step kids say thank you for being the stupid dumbass red necks that you all are.
