Always offer to help!

First and foremost, (dads, if you are reading this) always offer to help! Whether it is getting mom a snack, turning on the television, or cleaning up around the house, it’s the thought that counts. Yes, this means waking up at the wee hours of the night as well to help out. Babies don’t stop eating just because it is nighttime.

Increase your breastfeeding knowledge

Another way partners can be helpful is to read up on some breastfeeding literature. Being educated on the ins and outs of breastfeeding will help you better understand what your partner is going through. Lift your partner up and be encouraging, especially when times get tough. Breastfeeding can be very difficult, especially in the beginning, and telling your partner how proud you are of her for sticking it out, will do wonders.

Lastly, this new mom is putting all of her time and energy into supplying this baby with what it needs to grow up healthy so the least you can do is change your newborn’s diapers! It may be gross sometimes but it could be worse; you could have a fussy 6-month-old baby cutting teeth and trying to latch onto your engorged breasts. A helpful partner is always appreciated!
