I totally agree!! Because I nursed Abri constantly, DH was in charge of bathing her. He found his own way to bond that worked for them. If you do end up going the EPing route, you may want to consider a long term rental of a hospital grade pump. A mom in one of my PRs pumped an entire year. One of the tips she had was to get up in the middle of the night to pump. Even when her son was sleeping all night, she'll still got up to get one additional session in. She ended up with a surplus of milk that lasted past his first birthday. It is doable, but it is work.
