Fantastic post :)
My husband always does bath time and that's their special time.
I also find it very important that the man doesn't also feed so baby learns that not only food is comfort but that cuddles, bouncing etc are comforting too.

Love this SO much. It is completely insulting that a Dad's ability to bond and take care of his child should be in any way connected with his ability or inability to lactate.

On the rare occasions when my hubby fed EBM to my babies from a bottle, he rarely gazed lovingly at them....he tended to gaze lovingly at SkySports1.....

My baby (now 12!) was exclusively breastfed til he was 10 months. As a tiny baby, he would shuffle (rooting reflex style) skin-to-skin up my chest until he went right over my shoulder in search of a breast. Like most breast-fed babies, he was never interested in a pacifier, and neither were we. But he loved latching onto my nose and would stay there sucking it for ages. It grossed some people out but I loved it and so did he. There's lots of ways to bond without bottles.

My partner has always done the pacing up and down when grumpy baby needs to sleep and nipple just not working. Even now she will fall asleep by him walking around for 5 minutes then he gets a lovely cuddle.

Brilliant post, as ever! I've often wondered why a bottle HAS to be involved for a father to bond with his child!

I agree with this so much. My partner hated giving a bottle because none of my babies ever liked it and it was a struggle, they only ever had a couple and we gave up. Their dad has always done the bathing as I find newborns too slippery when wet and the "collect and deliver", like the term.
Keep up the great work
