Nursing is so much more than just a time for baby to feed. The comfort and closeness of mom is an experience that can’t be recreated—unless you’re as creative as dad Anthony Favors.

On Facebook, Favors explains that his daughter wasn’t receptive to his bottle feeding.

“Wife was working and my daughter didn’t want me because I didn’t have breast milk so I tricked her [and] cut a hole in my shirt,” he says.

Gotta love a good dad hack. If you’re unwilling to sacrifice a t-shirt to the cause, there are other things you can do to make bottle feeding successful. For starters, a bottle warmer and the proper tilt are key.
