A man seeking to help his breastfeeding wife turned away a friend in need, sparking a debate on whether he was in the wrong. The man's mother, a midwife, moved in with the couple to take care of the baby and help with milk production. She advised the couple to create a relaxing environment for the wife, which worked well. However, when the wife's irritating friend showed up unexpectedly and asked for help with her problems, the man turned her away, saying that it would stress out his wife. The man was called an a**hole by the friend and some of his wife's friends. What do you think? Was he wrong to prioritize his wife's milk production process over a friend in need?

Breastfeeding can be tough, especially with stress impacting milk flow. When a man's wife was struggling to produce enough milk, his midwife mom moved in and provided helpful tips for relaxation, resulting in success.
