La Leche League believes that in the early years, the baby has an intense need to be with his mother which is as basic as his need for food.

La Leche League believes that breastfeeding is enhanced and the nursing couple sustained by the loving support, help, and companionship of the baby’s father. A father’s unique relationship with his baby is an important element in the child’s development from early infancy.

I talked briefly about this in an antenatal class yesterday. It's so important for fathers to know that they have an important role to play in the breastfeeding family.
