In my Father's Day post last year, I shared how Stan helped me overcome the frustrations and fears I had in breastfeeding Naima. I also shared an article from BabyCenter Philippines about dads and breastfeeding. In my experience, I cannot overemphasize how important it was for me to have had Stan's support, allowing me to successfully nurse Naima until now. Every time I had doubts whether I still want to continue, he would always say how healthy Naima was, how Naima would appreciate the sacrifices I've made so far and that it was entirely my decision whether or not I wanted to continue and he would support me.
There is a myriad of information available (aside from Baby Center Philippines) on how dads can be part of the breastfeeding relationship. I've compiled several websites for new moms (and dads) to check-out:
1. Kellymom - compilation of links and reading materials
2. Breastfeeding.com - an article talking about various dads' experiences
5. Fathers to Be - also includes a compilation of links and reading materials
6. The US WIC Program - targeted towards African-Americans but what I like about it are the handouts focusing on how breastfeeding is a joint decision by moms and dads
