THE ROLE OF THE FATHER IN FOOD FEEDING
Maybe this is not obvious, but the role of fathers in ensuring that mother feeding is successful is extremely important. Sadly, most fathers go to all antenatal classes, except for breastfeeding. Many fathers feel out of a tight breastfeeding cup. They observe how mothers build close symbiotic relationships with the newborn, and they want to know if there is any place for dad. When I asked mothers about what ensures successful breastfeeding, one fact came to light: a sympathetic and helping spouse. As a father who tried a bit to find his place, I must admit that at first I did not see myself in the same responsible role that Martha had - the role of the breastfeeding mother. When she decided to breastfeed our first child in the distant 1960s, when only about 25 percent of women chose to breastfeed, I was a little more concerned about breastfeeding. Even though I was a passing pediatrician and had a little heard about the benefits of breastfeeding, I provided only passive support, and Martha consulted herself.
Now, thirty-two years after I saw in practice the benefits of breastfeeding on thousands of babies and watched Martha, who has eighteen years of experience breastfeeding our eight children, I am absolutely sure that breastfeeding has its own characteristics. If I am passionately talking about breastfeeding, it is only because I know. In addition, I learned: thanks to my support, Martha better realized her abilities when feeding our babies to the breast, especially those for whom care was more difficult. Of course, there will be times when you want to bring everything back. But when you recognize the physical, psychological and intellectual benefits of breastfeeding for your wife, children and your family (which includes you), you want to bring it all back, not only to encourage your wife to breastfeed, but also to do everything what is in your power for breastfeeding to be a happy and memorable experience for all of you.
