As a dad of two, I’ve learned a few things. . . Even about breastfeeding. Meaning, you can support your wife on her breastfeeding journey.
Bravado Designs did a survey recently and found out that “Eighty-five percent of new moms say husband’s support very important to breastfeeding success.”
Here’s how I helped:
- Be Supportive. Your wife will be stressed about making enough breastmilk. You need to be there, help her in any way she needs.
- Assist by putting her into a warm shower to help the ducts open up, put cold compresses on her after the breastfeeding is done.
- Educate yourself. You need to read up on it — take 5 minutes out of your day and read a website so you can really be a source of knowledge.
Bravado Designs’s #LittleVictories campaign is inspired by breastfeeding moms–and the real moments they share–recognizing that being pregnant, having a baby, and breastfeeding are life-changing times that can be rewarding yet challenging. And Dads are a big part of helping this be sucessful. Little Victories come from finding comfort–both physical and emotional–and Bravado’s #LittleVictories campaign underscores its ongoing commitment to all mothers – recognizing that comfort and confidence lead to success.
