Dad Invents Clever Hack To Breastfeed Daughter After Mum Goes Back To Work
When it comes to having children, you can read countless parenting books and listen to as much advice as possible but at the end of the day, it comes down to instinct, individual experiences and to put it bluntly, winging it.
What works for one family might not work for another, but we have a feeling that a number of frustrated dads might be giving this idea a go if all else fails.
Florida-based Chris Allen has been charged with looking after his baby daughter, Destiny, while his fiancée, Jennifer Capo, has gone back to work.
And naturally, he wanted to make his little girl feel as comfortable as possible, even when it comes to feeding her.
So Allen decided to imitate the way in which his wife would breastfeed Destiny by placing a bottle through a hole in his vest to imitate her breast.
You can watch the video, which was posted on the Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page, below.
The video has been shared more than 75,000 times and despite some negative comments, the feedback has mostly been supportive.
Hayley Dorsett wrote, "THIS is a dedicated daddy! Impressive that the little babe is still exclusively breastfed even though momma can't be there all the time! Loooove it!"
Alli Vaca commented, "This just shows how the boob is important to a baby!!! And if this helped daddy soothe baby who freaking cares!! Until you been there you'll understand and if you have been there and are b****ing about this you should know better!!! Kudos to this daddy being a DADDY!!"
Surely if Destiny is content, that's all that matters, right?!
