You mean on the forum?
As a member or just being involved and reading with you?

My DH is very interested in anything I tell him from the forum. The other day he even asked about VintageRose and how she was doing. He said he had been thinking about her and what had happened a lot.
If there is anything at all with DD, sleeping, eating, behaviour, anything at all, he always says, 'can you ask your wonderful forum ladies/friends about this or that?'

He is not interested in being a member, but realized early what a great place it is.

He became interested after I told him about the community and what a great support it is for me. And also when he realized what a vast pool of advice, experience and help this place is!

Maybe you should try that approach?

Or a dedicated "Dad's torch appreciation" society? :smt044

P.S.. loving the idea of a partners in BF section! What a great place for Dad's, grandparents, carers and friends to be able to share their experiences and ask questions :)

Every comment I make about Bf my DP asks if I read that on the ABA forum. He seems to think I have been "brainwashed" As I no longer cover up when Bf in public, no matter how uncomfortable those around me are! Although I did notice the only person fussing or looking at me feeding is him! Everyone else doesnt notice or doesn't care!
