    Photo of Dad breastfeeding baby goes viral while mom recovers from C-section complications

    April had an emergency C-section to deliver their daughter, Rosalia, in June. April had two seizures and had to undergo an emergency c-section.

    The parents had planned to have immediate skin on skin contact with the baby as soon as she was born, but April was still recovering from the seizures and c-section, and she was unable to breastfeed the baby right away.

    That's when nurses suggested that Maxamillian nurse the baby in her place, using a supplemental nursing system. He was fitted with a "suction cup fake nipple" with a tube that would feed Rosalia baby formula.

    Later, the couple posted photos of him breastfeeding his baby, Rosalia, to Facebook on June 26 along with the caption "Eat your heart out!!" "This super rad nurse made a epically killer offer, and I was fortunate enough to slap on a suction cup fake nipple," Maximillian wrote.

    His post has been shared nearly 30,000 times and gained widespread media attention.

    Maximillian was happy to step in and be the first person to breast feed his daughter.
