*Lets Dad experience the joys of motherhood

The division of work and responsibility within the modern family is constantly up for revision.  Yet there is one task that still falls inevitably to the mother: breast-feeding the infants.  This Chindogu challenges one of the last bastions of sexual inequality, and allows Father to experience the joy of nourishing his baby from his own body - almost.  If this device was adopted on a large scale, then the benefits in terms of father - child bonding and the feminisation of the male could produce greater love and understanding on a global scale.  Maybe.
