Dads and breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is great for mum and baby but with everyone focusing on the baby and the partner doing all the feeding, it can make the dad feel a little pushed out...
Useful tips to help dads to bond with their baby
Give your partner and baby plenty of kisses and hugs whilst they feed.
Play, play, play
Playing with your baby is an important way to bond.
It's not just about cleaning bums. Nappy changes involve talking to your baby, being gentle and taking care of their needs.
Bath time is your time
If possible, make bathing a dad-thing in the same way that feeding is a mum-thing.
Do the burping
Help with the burping.
Your partner might be able to express milk so you can feed your baby from a bottle without using formula.
