I'm 26 years old and I came from Mexico to the U.S. illegally when I was four. I finished high school and went to trade school. I now live with my boyfriend and have a baby together he is a citizen. I have no criminal record, i report my taxes, and have never left the country. So I wanted to know what would you recommend me to do about becoming legal in the United States. I know some information about the deferred action but I don't know if that is safe. I'm confused and need help?
DACA would get you a work permit for two years. Whether anything else is possible depends on you getting married, the status of your spouse, how you entered the US, etc.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
