April and Maxamillian Neubauer faced a hard situation while in the hospital. April was unable to breastfeed her newborn baby-girl by herself. April Neubauer’s delivery was not easy, she had pre-eclampsia, and high blood pressure. Then a seizure resulted in an emergency Caesarean section.

“I was unable to have kids at all. I have PCOS (a hormonal disorder that causes infrequent menstrual periods), so I didn’t know I was pregnant until 8 weeks in,” April says.

As baby Rosalie was born on 26 June, April had another seizure, and was whisked away for further treatment and recovery, having not yet held her baby.

“A nurse came out with our beautiful baby girl. We went to the nursery, I sat down and took off my shirt for some skin-to-skin time,” father told the BBC.

A supplemental nursing system is a feeding tube for assistance. It allows a parent to be able to feel and share the closeness of her baby while also giving the benefits of skin-to-skin contact. It is used to increase lactation, induce lactation, for babies with special needs, for premature babies and for mothers with low milk supply.

Although the post has been shared more than 30,000 times and had hundreds of reactions, Maxamillian says he did what any dad would do.

“I really did it just to be a good dad and be a hero for the nursing staff because they are superheroes. You couldn’t ask for anyone better.

“Don’t forget those moms, though. I did it for them too.”

This is an important lesson for fathers to take on a bigger role right after delivery.

But when a father can take on the responsibility of feeding a newborn in special conditions, it can offer some relief to the mother. More power to such amazing fathers.
