This article explores the need for healthcare professionals to address fathers' concerns regarding engagement and supportiveness with breastfeeding partners. Fathers often feel left out during the partner's perinatal care and do not get the same amount of education and support, especially regarding breastfeeding. The desire to have practical information that is specifically related to the paternal figure is a common complaint among fathers. Educational classes involving childcare and breastfeeding information provide positive results regarding an increase in breastfeeding rates. The purpose of this article is to address the need to acquire interventions that engage and assist fathers with supporting their partners. Currently, two known programs exist to attempt to speak directly to fathers seeking practical breastfeeding advice: "Dads and Breastfeeding" and "Cribside Assistance." However, there is still a lack of research regarding effective interventions that assist fathers and increase breastfeeding duration.
