“Dear Prudence” got an interesting letter from a dad who wasn’t sure what to do about his wife. It seems that because he was a stay at home dad he was better at noticing their baby’s feeding cues than his wife who was primarily pumping. Apparently she resented him for it. “Recently my wife blew up at me and said that her breasts are her body and no other person can tell her what to do with her body. From now on I am not allowed to tell her when I see signs that our daughter is hungry because it then would be controlling my wife’s body.”Answer Question

um.. I do believe what Prudence was trying to do was tell the dad to let the mother bond with her child and figure out the baby's wants and needs on her own. Nobody can tell her that. The dad was interfering, Prudence was telling him to shut up and let nature take its course!
