When his partner suffered some complications after birth this dad never hesitated to step up and play mum!

Maxamillian Kendall Neubauer shared on Facebook how his wife, April had suffered some complications duringan emergency c-section.

He shared these amazing pictures saying, “This super rad nurse made a epically killer offer, and I was fortunate enough to slap on a suction cup fake nipple. Being the first to breast feed da baby!!!! “I did it for the moms” Eat your heart out!!”

  • Well done!!! If the baby is progressing it proves it is successful. I hope more Dads manage to do this in a hospital situation.


  • Great dad and he helped not only to bond with his child but to help his wife breastfeed also if she wanted to do so once she was able. Not many dads would do it, let alone put it out there on social media.


  • Well done to all involved! What a beautiful moment for these two. The fake nipple hashtag kind of threw me though….????????


  • Beautiful. Go dad bonding!


  • I’m glad everyone was safe in the end and good on him
    For playing mum in the early moments not many men get that opportunity. By this i mean it’s a great bonding opportunity and one some men envy.


  • Good work. I hope it work out for mumma when she started breastfeeding, also hope she had a speedy recovery


  • That is really cool I love it! Go you Daddy!


  • He really is a great dad to do this.


  • Pretty sure he could have achieved the same result with a bottle, just less publicity that way I guess


  • Beautiful thing to do for his newborn bub and for his wife. Haters will hate but all that really matters here was bub able to get breastmilk in those first hours/days.


  • Good team work and exactly what being a parent is all about in this modern age.

    • Feel good parenting stories are always most welcome! Mums and Dads both need to be celebrated!


  • Great team effort.


  • Great job from the Dad but the nurse is equal in the task not a lot would have offered this. Amazing what they can do these days.


  • Wow what an amazing dad ☺


  • What a great story. Haven’t seen this before. Impressive of Dad.
