When nursing a baby, the mother can give her husband love and appreciation that he is sharing the bonding process with her. By sharing the nursing experience with her husband as much as possible, a new mom can help the two to become closer as a couple.
Breastfeeding can be hard on some dads because they often feel left out of the most important part of a baby's life. New mothers should give fathers opportunities to help as much as they can by doing such things as fixing pillows and getting water. Allowing the father to bond with the baby during breastfeeding and letting him give the baby bottles facilitates his relationship with the baby.
