'Breastfeeding Dad' Gets Creative During Feeding Time To Soothe His Baby



When Christopher Allen's fiancé, Jennifer Capo, returned to work after the birth of their daughter, Destiny, the stay-at-home dad found himself struggling to figure out his little girl's feeding schedule.

"I realized sometimes throughout the day at different times of me feeding her, she would be comfortable sometimes and other times she wasn't as comfortable," Allen told TODAY Parents. "One day, I decided to take matters into my own hands after Destiny was a little restless during one feeding, so I cut a hole in my shirt and stuck the bottle in it and fed her. That was the most comfortable I've ever seen my baby during a feeding with me."

Allen cut a small hole in the breast of his white tank top, and inserted Destiny's bottle through the gap, to give the illusion of breastfeeding. He filmed the entire process — and his innovative technique has since gone viral, with nearly six million views on Facebook alone.

"Mommy had to go back to work, so Daddy is helping out," Allen said in the 15-second clip, which was shared by the Facebook group Breastfeeding Mama Talk. "Ha, I guess it's like breastfeeding, right?"

 The video has been met with overwhelmingly positive response, with most commenters praising Allen for being "dedicated" and sharing their own stories about how their babies struggled to take a bottle.
