What if men breastfed? What would it look like? (video)


Imagine a world where men could breastfeed. Such a thought might sound weird, but it makes us wonder how their lives would be, compared to the reality of our lives — specifically, how breastfeeding would affect a man’s life on the job. Naya Health’s now-viral “If Men Breastfed” video takes a hilarious stab at the notion in a visually awesome way while pointing out a pretty major double standard.

“Do you think our wives have any idea how hard we have it?”

What if men breastfed:

Naya Health gets an A+ in our book for this epic video that shows how a day in the life of a breastfeeding dad at work might look — posing the question, “If men breastfed, would we still be dealing with outdated breast pumps, closets that double as lactation rooms, and a work culture that treats pumping as an inconvenience?”

Yeah, the answer is NO.

While some comments have said that this is a bit of dad-bashing, we think it’s a funny exaggeration of the reality. Unlike some videos, it doesn’t make out dads to be witless buffoons, but instead just points out how a male-dominated workplace might be different if men were the ones who were responsible for the important, and often inconvenient, task of breastfeeding.

We also enjoyed a funny diversion from the mommy wars over how much, how long, and where it’s appropriate. It’s clear to us that our kids,¬†moms, and even dads, would be healthier and happier if the world made it easier to perform one of nature’s most natural roles of being a mom.
