Dad ‘breastfeeds’ his daughter after mum returns to work

We parents are a crafty bunch – whatever crazy problem our children present us with, we have an equally crazy solution. Introducing the hands-free dad, Chris Allen, who devised a pretty clever way of feeding his baby daughter, after her mum returned to work. This video will have you smiling in no time. 

In a week where we have applauded the likes of South Australian dad Brad Kearns for his efforts at holding the parenting fort while his wife is in hospital, we’re also tipping our hats to Florida’s Chris Allen. His fiancee Jennifer recently returned to work after the birth of their daughter, Destiny. According to The Huffington PostDestiny is exclusively breastfed, so dad Chris devised a cunning contraption to ensure she continued feeding without a worry.
