Breastfeeding Devices for Dads

Would You Want Your Husband to Use the Man Boob?

It was disturbing enough to hear about grandma trying to nurse her grandson, but can you imagine if grandpa pulled the same stunt with a man boob that Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) did in Meet the Fockers?

Men are actually capable of breastfeeding. While it's certainly not common practice, I wonder how many males would be willing to give it a go. I'm not sure how I'd feel if my husband wanted to nurse our child. While it may be biologically possible, I just don't think I could get used to the idea. Even if he used the man–boob device pictured above. Unless there was a medical reason for doing so. A bottle of breastmilk in my hubby's hand seemed to work well enough.

What are your thoughts on male nursing?
