NIC state pension credits - stay at home dad

Hi, I just wondered if anyone can help please. 

Can you transfer NIC credits on your state pension forecast after they’ve been applied  to your account and if so is it the future pension centre you call or somewhere else? 

When we had our daughter I (the mum) didn’t have anytime off work and my husband finished work to stay at home to look after her. I didn’t know about the NIC credits until I watched Martin Lewis this week, so I logged into my state pension forecast and could see from 2011 I have credits applied together with a large NIC contribution for several years - I don’t need the credits and will be due a full state pension without them. However, my husband is short a full state pension by several years because he didn’t work while she was at school and he hasn’t got enough working years left to make them up.
