What do you think about the conrevarsey?

I can appreciate this one because I nursed twins. There are so many way that you can nurse twins.

I could barely understand this one, Man breastfeeding in public.

Funny story: After my MIL had her last child, a son (the only child she nursed) she had to have emergancy sergery a few weeks after having him. Her husband had to give baby a bottle for the first time. Baby wasn't happy, he refused to take the bottle and had a horrible time with the whole ordeal. My FIL felt he had no options so.....he put baby on his breast to calm him down. This worked so beutifully that he did this for the few days that mom was in the hospital, and spoon feed the rest of the time.

Of course my BIL, who he nursed had to be in the room when he told me the story. I really respect the fact that he would do anything for his baby

If you knew this man he is the sweetest, most innocent man that you will ever meet. He is so childlike in many ways. He really thought this was the best way to make the best of the bad situation. I told him that he was right to think this was the best thing to do.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those  who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

I think it's to show how BF is more a "woman's issue" and try and make ppl see that.

I think the first is sweet and don't see how it could bother. The 2nd is funny, I guess...neither BOTHERS me.

Kewl! Did he say if he started producing milk at all? ;-)

If it works, why not?

He had only did this for a couple of day, so not enough time to start producing. However I know that men can produce breast milk. In the tribe that my ancestors originated from when a mother would die during child birth, the father would be responsible for nursing. Mothers who adopt their children often breast feed their adopted children. Of course the child needs to nurse for a while before milk is acually produced. But that is why the "nursing system" from Medela was invented.

I think it is great, if you ask me. I don't know very many fathers who would be willing to do this. My husband was wondering what it felt like......it took but two sucks before he said, "nope"!!! Hehehehe

Yeah, my girls have tried latching on to DH a couple of times and he definately doesn't like it. OTOH I have a friend who tried pacifying his kids on his flat nipples when his GF was in the shower or otherwise very temporarily unavailable in the newborn period and it never worked. He was actually pretty disappointed (he is one of our volunteers with the group I'M with...our only father).
