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

  • Cuddles
    • 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.
  • Change nappies
    • 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.
