Especially for Dads...

Dad & Ellis I'll Bathe You, Baby!

A supportive partner can really help the breastfeeding relationship between mum and baby to succeed.

He is their protector, encourager, provider - he is the one who is there at 2am when she is tired and emotional, the one who can head off the discouragement of others (including perhaps his own mum). By supporting the new mum, by providing food, making sure she is comfortable and by helping her to ask for skilled assistance from a breastfeeding counsellor if she needs it, he allows her confidence and mothering abilities to grow and flourish.

Breastfeeding is more than simply nutrition. The bond created between mum and baby by breastfeeding can not simply be replicated purely by dad feeding his baby a bottle of milk, whether formula or expressed milk. Dads have their own unique ways of interacting and binding with their children.
