If you’re concerned about giving a breastfeeding Dad the â€œchance to bondâ€, check out these ideas â€“ relevant to all parents, whether breastfeeding is an option or not.

Bras: A well fitted nursing bra makes breastfeeding access easier.
Breast(s): Essential equipment for breastfeeding.
Button fronts: Used in â€œpull downâ€style feeding.
