Nursing fathers………..scandal or practical approach?

My dear frineds,

I just made my hands free for some time to be able to share with you interesting and bit controversial article with life approach I have read few days ago. NURSING FATHERS this term is used in several articles related to the fathers early involvement in the child care while mom is nursing. But this in not the case I want to write about now.
Nobody mentioned also fact that there are some fathers who enjoyed “being nursed”. Yes there are fathers at least in my home country which actually enjoys more to drink mothers milk rather than cow or goat milk.
In the beginning when I was interested in breastfeeding topics I have read many articles, how to nurse my baby properly, how often, how whole process actually works, how to boost my milk production etc. But once I found this interesting information. Do not think that I am breastfeeding my husband, this is far from reality but at least we have openly discussed the benefits which might nursing of fathers bring.
Actually what most of the moms described was as follows:

  • when their breast was full of milk and their nipples were already hurting from milk pumps and constant baby drinking the fathers served as great milk pumps because they were softer than any other machine 🙂
  • It was easy to explain to dad how fast is milk created in the breast and he could help to drink milk especially at night even without waking up the mum and he helped her with milk overproduction
  • there were cases where the mum did not have enough milk so the father helped her to sustain the milk production because he tried to drink always after his baby finished and he softly stimulated the production system
  • fathers lost their jealousy feelings towards their infants which were closer to mum all the time because of nursing and in some cases it created closer intimite moment for the couple.
  • the immunity of whole family improved because of drinking mothers milk rich for antibodies.

So I am not pushing any parents for this practice but I found it interesting to share. So moms feels open to the idea if your husband come and asks whether he can drink a bit of this ambrosial drink 🙂 because as you can see it has its advantages. But rather keep this in your homes not every public could understand this… 🙂
