A newbie father from Wisconsin, US is setting some major parenting goals. Pictures of Maxamillian Neubauer breastfeeding his newly born daughter, using a fake nipple is going viral on social media for all the right reasons. Neubauer stepped up and volunteered to try the supplemental nursing method, using formula filled syringe taped to his chest after his wife April Neubauer encountered certain complications following an emergency C-section.

Due to the complications, April couldn’t breastfeed the baby immediately, prompting his husband to offer to clamp on the syringe device. Neubauer has nicknamed the device ‘moob’ (man boob). His decision was also prompted by the nurses’ advice that it is important to get the C-section babies feeding as soon as possible.
