Get hands on

Most women who stop breastfeeding early give up because they don’t get enough support.

Research shows that a whopping 9 out of 10 women who stop within 6 weeks don’t actually want to give up, but feel it is too difficult to carry on. Other studies show that only 3% of women can’t breastfeed because of
physical reasons.

These alarming statistics show how important it is for dads to support their partners during these vital early stages to reduce the chances of her giving up.

It is now scientifically proven that breastfed babies grow up fitter and stronger than those that are formula fed. And with dads getting more and more involved in bringing up babies, breastfeeding has become a real joint effort.

Tim Cooke, a 29 year-old MC from Swinton said, “I read all the leaflets and realised that it was definitely the best thing for my baby. My wife wanted to try her hardest to feed naturally, so I decided I was going to do everything I could to support her.” Although most dads work hard to pull their weight around the house when mum and baby get home, many still overlook the emotional support that she needs.
