Breastfeeding Mama Talk shared a sweet video of a baby girl rooting for mums milk as she woke from a nap while snuggled on daddy’s bare chest. The results are classic!

The video is captioned: “I once read that in African tribes they use the father as a pacifier. My daughter was asleep on her shirtless dad when she woke from her nap and instantly searched for the boob. It didn’t take very long until he handed her straight back to mama.”

Mum, Katie, added “She fell asleep in the comfort of her daddy’s arms. As she was waking from her napping state she was searching for boob. In the time it took me to put down my studies and unclip my bra, I was there.

I didn’t keep her waiting for milk. She didn’t have long enough to make a murmur or cry. My husband played along because had he stopped her searching she would have woke. Same reason we whispered.

I think he was super good for putting her needs above everything else and kept her happy for all of a few seconds til I could provide the goods. Thanks for the lovely comments. He really is a top dad and she loves him to bits.”

Another comment read,”I had to go to theatre soon after my little girl was born so to keep her happy while I was gone she had a quick soothe with her daddy, poor sod must have had hair balls in her mouth for weeks mind.”

Another cute clip is doing the rounds at the moment of a toddler trying her hardest to breast feed her baby brother. So adorable!

  • ah lol it is funny to witness and does make for a good laugh :)


  • My son did this to my hubby once. He said it hurt a lot. It only happened once, he made sure of that lol


  • When little babies are hungry they will search out a source for milk.


  • Hey, when you’re hungry, you’re hungry.


  • Lol, very natural indeed ! I remember when I was 7yrs or so my youngest sister was born. I had her in my arms and she was hungry and searching for the boob and started sucking my upper arm. I was so amazed by the force of it. The same amazement I see by these dads :)
    Isn’t that toddler trying to breastfeed her baby brother most adorable ??!!


  • Children will do this all the time – it’s natural, but dad would have had a shock not having had his nipples sucked before.


  • A friend of ours took her 4 year old granddaughter to a relative’s funeral as she was staying with them following the birth of her baby brother. She told me she gave her a doll to cuddle. During a prayer, Grandma checked what she was doing. She had the doll over her shoulder patting its back like she had seen her Mum doing to her baby brother.
