Dads Supporting Breastfeeding

Brought to you by Medela

When you think breasfeeding, you think MOM. Mom produces the milk and baby feeds directly from Mom's body. There are many ways that Dad can help. Medela has outlined some ideas for dads. Read all about it here and check out Medela's amazing line of products as well as their website for more information!

Daddies and Breastfeeding: Ways to Stay Involved
Before the Baby Comes
  1. Be supportive of your partner's decision to breastfeed by understanding the benefits of breastmilk.
  2. Help your partner find information on what breastpump your insurance will cover. The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies to provide equipment and support with no co-pay, but the actual pump provided will vary from company to company.
  3. Join your partner in preparing for the experience of breastfeeding by taking a course that will provide you both with the information you'll need to know.
  4. Seek out other fathers who have supported their partners while Breastfeeding to gain real world advice.
At the Hospital
  1. At the hospital, be an advocate for your partner. Make sure the staff knows that she wants to breastfeed and that formula should not be given to the baby without consent.
  2. Find the lactation consultant if mom is struggling. Many hospitals have one on staff, and early intervention and support from a professional is crucial, particularly for first-time moms.
  3. Ask the hospital staff about local breastfeeding support groups for after your family goes home. Peer encouragement is helpful, and it's an excuse for mom and baby to get out of the house.
At Home
  1. In addition to making sure your partner has what she needs while she heals from childbirth, you can help the breastfeeding transition to home by making sure she is comfortable while nursing—by bringing her pillows, foot rest, water, etc.
  2. It doesn't sound glamorous, but diaper changes are a great way for you to get involved in baby care. In addition to giving your partner a break, it's a chance for you and your baby to start practicing conversation skills by making eye contact, cooing noises and engaging your baby with changing facial expressions.
  3. If your partner starts pumping, you'll have a chance to bond with your baby over a bottle and give your partner a break. You can further help your partner by washing and sterilizing pump parts and bottles.
  4. Be your partner's biggest cheerleader. Breastfeeding can be frustrating and difficult in the beginning, but you can provide moral support by acknowledging the difficulty of nursing and offering to find a professional to help, such as lactation consultant (which should be covered by your insurance). And remind your partner of why she wanted to breastfeed in the first place!

Medela: Vote for your Favorite NICU

As part of National Prematurity Awareness Month, Medela is hosting a Virtual Human Milk Collection Campaign throughout the month of November to help increase awareness of the importance of breastmilk for premature babies and support the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) that support them and their families. 

Medela will donate a total of $30,000 in breastfeeding support products to NICUs–$5,000 to each of six geographic regions across the country.

Every year, 500,000 families are impacted by premature births and related complications. Our nation's NICUs help premature babies survive and thrive. Enabling hospitals to support moms in providing breastmilk to their babies is a critical to giving them a healthy start and preventing infections. The only way your favorite NICU can win is if you visit to vote! 

Each person may only vote once from now until November 30. For full details on the promotion, please visit
