TikToker Claims Men’s Nipples Aren’t ‘Useless’ After All

Get to work dad.

As important as dads are in the grand scheme of things, sometimes, they're not quite as... "useful" as moms are in those newborn weeks, right after the baby is born. If a mom chooses to breastfeed and isn't pumping, it's not like Dad has the ability to feed the baby. That's not to say he shouldn't be changing diapers and doing other baby care tasks, of course, but nursing is something he biologically can't do.

And while many moms have been known to joke that their husbands nipples have been rendered "useless," apparently, that's not actually the case... historically speaking, of course, as one TikTok video has pointed out.


The video starts out with one woman explaining that men are actually able to use their nipples to offer comfort — making themselves a human pacifier, if you will. The video is stitched together with one of a mom who's breastfeeding her child, as she sings in the background, "Wait 'til I tell my husband his nips aren't useless." 

Mama looks elated to hear this news. Hey, she probably needs a break!

And among the hundreds of people who commented on the video were moms who have actually experienced this phenomenon themselves. "When my son was a baby I had watch him while I took a shower and I hear him yelling help me, I jumped out of the shower and our son was stuck to him," one hilariously shared.

Hey, it's worth a try. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the newborn period definitely falls under that category.
