How did your partner help you while you were breastfeeding?
He didn't. I did everything. I am a single mom now, so I still do everything.
I didn't know it was a group activity. lol! I've nursed 5 kids for 1-2 years each (no bottles) and I guess I can't see what exactly he would help out with?
He didn't; he was very unsupportive.
He drove 2 hours into another state to get me the breast pump I needed (no local store had it in stock). He took care of DD while I pumped (DD was unable to latch, so I exclusively pumped for 15 months). He would help bag her milk for freezing and wash my pumping supplies. His most important job was to pick me up Non-Alcoholic beer which I needed to drink when my milk supply would decrease. Our local wine & spirit store didn't normally stock non-alcoholic beer but he asked for them to always have a 6 pack in stock for him in case I needed it.
He didn't walk up in night, but he'd do his fair share of everything else and would do anything that needed doing while I was feeding.
