CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WREG) A Tennessee man launched a campaign to make father‘s more aware of why their support is needed by mother‘s who breastfeed.
Hector Cruz, who is a photographer, was frustrated when he was not allowed inside classes his wife took for breastfeeding.
“We had a lot of issues, and I did not know how to help. I felt frustrated, confused and completely helpless at that point,” Cruz told WSMV-TV. “I knew if I felt that way, there were many other fathers facing that same struggle.”
Cruz started the Project Breastfeeding campaign which features men holding babies as if they are breastfeeding.
Many photos carry the “If I Could, I Would” slogan.
Cruz hopes dads learn their support is needed and also that the campaign reduces stigmas that can come with breastfeeding.
