Dad’s Breastfeeding Tips for Fathers Should Be Required Reading

The thing that is the most lovely about this post is that it’s expecting men to take part in the work (and joy) of parenting a newborn. Mom has both the privilege and hardship of growing the baby, and a lot of the time is solely responsible for sustaining their life through nursing.

I Don’t Think I’ll Ever “Just Know” I’m Done Having Kids

That being said, I always believed that, when we were done having kids, we would “just know”.
