Dads, did you know there are tons of ways to help out when it comes to feeding your newborn? There is always a learning curve, but this is a great time to find what works best so you can help feed baby when mom needs a break.
Breastfeeding and pumping should be seen as a team effort — studies have shown that moms who feel more supported and helped by their significant other will breastfeed for a longer time and will generally be more successful on their breastfeeding journey. Dad can help if mom is returning to work to aid with building her breast milk supply, which makes it easier for her to be away for normal work hours and still be able to keep baby full and happy. Dad can also track how many ounces baby consumes and document feeding times. When dad is able to help with breastfeeding, mom can reap some of the rewards too — a little extra sleep, an afternoon out with friends or a trip to the spa can make a world of difference for a new mama!
Communication is key for a successful time with breastfeeding. We have gathered some tips to help dads encourage mom during her breastfeeding journey.
Understand how breastfeeding works. Partaking in prenatal and consultant appointments makes the real life situation less daunting and frustrating for moms and dads. A lactation consultant once noted the huge success she saw when she added more dads into workshops — she realized that moms focus more on nipple position and baby’s latch, but not the overall position, which is what dads sometimes have an easier time noticing. Mom and dad can work as a team to make sure mom is in the best position possible to feed their newborn.
Dads, when mom is busy with feedings or pumping, look to helping around the house or helping keep older siblings on schedule. This will create a happy environment for the whole family! Here are a few ways that dads can help take the stress off of a breastfeeding mama:
Dads can always help mom with their newborn and feedings. From handling more around the house to actively working with feeding schedules, making sure your newborn is getting a healthy amount of milk is a great way for mom and dad to maintain teamwork! Being supportive with words of encouragement will keep mom feeling positive and successful throughout the breastfeeding experience.
