Dads are very important people in the early years of their child’s life and the more hands on attention given will create a lasting bond between Father and child.
Here we suggest several ways a Dad can assist and support his wife, especially if she is breastfeeding in the first weeks and months after the birth.
Breastfeeding is important and concerns both parents. We have discussed the benefits of breastfeeding in earlier topics. It has been documented that a child is directly affected by the support his mother receives from her husband/partner during the breastfeeding period woman are more inclined to breastfeed for longer with the Father’s support - therefore the baby will benefit from her milk and it is the best food and comfort she can offer him.
