Comfort feeding

by Linus
(London, England)

I'm a dad of four lovely children, I may not have first hand experience of breast feeding (I'd be a millionaire if I had) but I witnessed the bond between mother and baby for a long time. There is no better way to feed your baby but occasionally it can become a little complex.


One of our children used to use mum (yup I'm from London) as the only method of sleeping. So I would have to tip toe him back into his cot when he'd finish feeding only to hear him wriggling around and crying for the 47th feed in a night. It can become a vicious cycle because a tired mum and dad want to get back to the little amount of sleep you get and it's hard to break.

I wrote in more depth about this http://parentplaygroup.com/2014/07/09/sleep-training-the-boss/ and luckily we found a way out eventually. It might not work for all but it did for us.

Actually, while it is socially taboo, men can apparently breast feed, as you can read about on this very site, under the heading "lactating-man," among other places.
Always something new to learn on the Internet, ain't there?
