Fathers are parents too


All the media releases and interviews on the possible contamination of infant formula I’ve seen or heard have talked about mothers’ concerns.

What about the fathers?

One of the advantages of bottle feeding rather than breast feeding is that fathers can have a more hands-on role in parenting.

Even if they weren’t buying formula and/or feeding their children every good father would be just as concerned as the mothers over the health of their babies.

There would be an uproar if media releases assumed all politicians, professionals or other occupations were men.

It is just as wrong to ignore them and make the assumption that they don’t now have a place in what were traditionally women’s roles.

Family matters don’t matter to women only.

Fathers are parents too.
