We know breastfeeding is a great way to bond with your baby, but what about dads and partners who aren’t actually feeding the baby? What can they do to help bond with their babies in their own ways? We're turning the show over to dads so they can share their personal experience.
You are passionate about giving your baby breast milk... but you’re partner? Ah, not so much. We know how important partner support is for breastfeeding and pumping moms, so what do you do when that support isn’t there? Do you stand on your soapbox and preach about all the benefits of breast milk? Or do you just let it go and “hopefully” find support elsewhere?
Breastfeeding is a commitment which can be challenging at times. And sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness or complementary words can help build up a breastfeeding mom’s confidence and keep her nursing for as long as possible. What can you do to support the breastfeeding mom in your life? We have some great ideas for partners, family and friends.
Partner support can be absolutely crucial to a breastfeeding mom's view of success. Learn more about a national campaign with the mission of de-stigmatizing public breastfeeding while encouraging partner support.
