Re: Support from men for NIP

There are little cards you can get, I think from Peaceful Parenting that are a little thank you for NIP. No awkwardness required, just hand the card and walk away. Not creepy, but gets the message across.


The world would be so boring if everyone were the same...

Re: Support from men for NIP

I think if your husband just acts normal that is great. I feel uncomfortable at church when I sit down in the cry room to nurse and any dad in there makes a fuss of "ok dads out of the room" It's no big deal, just feeding my kid here Just carry on with your business lol

I agree with some of the other people, just acting normal is a big thumbs up. I hate when guys make a big deal about looking away, or everyone leaves. I also like the idea of bring up their own wives NIP, that way he's not just "some guy" he's a dad that gets it.
