To we answered the question: "How does the perfect man help a breastfeeding mother?" The answers ranged from helping with night time parenting, starting dinner, helping with bed time routines, to just giving a new mom praise and encouragement. We also talked about making our desires and needs known by communicating verbally or through "honey-do" lists.
We also talked a lot about tandem nursing, nursing right after birth, nursing strikes and weaning. In keeping with today's theme here is a wonderful FAQ page from llli.org entitled "What Is the Father's Roll in the Breastfeeding Relationship?"
Thanks to all who attended, especially the new Moms! We hope to see you next month for series meeting #3: The Art of Breastfeeding & Avoiding Difficulties- The normal course of breastfeeding, recognizing challenges, caring for yourself, getting support. That meeting will be on March 9, 2010 at 10am!
