    Can’t quite believe this! Fathers expecting to share their baby’s breast milk?

    Women's rights and gender equality
    'She can't say no': the Ugandan men demanding to be breastfed

    The preliminary research suggested that men often drink before the child is fed, usually once a day, sometimes more frequently, and for about an hour at a time.

    I can't read about such things - they make me depressed.

    Maybe a consequence of Idi Amin who served as the President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, where a generation of children grew up with insecure attachment leaving a generation of grown men needing to regress to being a tiny baby again?

    I didn't go to the link, but what would be wrong with making sure the baby is fed first?

    Well I didn't go to look at the site, but asked what would be wrong with feeding the baby first and it got me two thumbs down. ( Perhaps part of my fan club?) Many women have excess milk too much for the baby.

    Would't it work ok the other way to feed the baby first? I think I understood the post correctly.

    Maybe I shouldn't respond as I haven't opened the link, but I think you may have missed something.

    I didn't either but don't think I did miss anything just feed the baby first is all I am saying. I understand you are just going along with goad on this one. I know for a fact some women do produce a lot of breast milk too much for the baby.

    Does it seem right to you that grownup men should demand the right to be breastfed?

    I know nothing about the Ugandan culture and how things work there so I really can't give an opinion on it. Only to say I believe the baby should be fed first. How much do you know about Ugandan culture?
