One man in the US has taken dad duty to the next level after his wife, who is now well and recovering, suffered complications during the birth of their first child.

When April Neubauer was unable to breastfeed her baby girl after suffering seizures during a C-section, her hubby, Maxamillian Neubauer, stepped up while hospital staff attended to his wife.

With the help of nurses, Maxamillian was able to slap on a fake nipple suction cup which used a cord attached to a syringe to feed milk through to the hungry newborn.

The proud father posted photos of the event to Facebook which garnered over 44,000 reactions from people everywhere and over 30,000 shares.

First-time mum April told news outletWBAYshe thought she’d never have children because of her polycystic ovary syndrome – a hormonal disorder that causes infrequent menstrual periods.

When she discovered she was pregnant, the new mum developed a post-birth plan which included making immediate “skin-to-skin contact” with her newborn.

But complications arose during the delivery and the new mum unfortunately ended up in the intensive care unit.

However, the family is now back home and April is recovering while enjoying her time with her baby girl.

Hospital nurse Cybil Martin-Dennehy said she regularly offers fathers the opportunity to breastfeed their children, however, many are reluctant and confused.

She said Neubauer’s eager response was a welcome surprise.

“I love my job and am passionate about breastfeeding, and I hope it encourages other health care providers to recognize the role that dads play in the breastfeeding journey. Maybe even more so now!” the nurse told CBS.
