    Dads are awesome, aren't they? They'll carry our little ones around on their shoulders for hours on end and swing our kids way higher than we moms ever could. And now they want to help out with breastfeeding. I love you, Dads.

    A new study has come out that shows that the partners of breastfeeding women sometimes feel left out and want to know how to support and help out. The research, from Swansea University, showed that new fathers feel positive about breastfeeding and want to be able to support their partner. Dr. Amy Brown, one of the authors of the study, said: "We know that women who feel that their partner is supportive and encouraging of breastfeeding are more likely to continue breastfeeding.
