How can I prevent my family from feeling left out because of breastfeeding?

I want to keep breastfeeding, but my baby only wants me. My husband and son feel left out.

Dads and brothers can change diapers, burp the baby, take the baby for walks, hold the baby while you are busy etc. I understand that the baby likes you right now because you are the caregiver and the baby depends on you for life at this time. That will change as the baby gets older and more mobile. Please just enjoy the time with your baby and and remember you NEVER get to go back to these moments and this time in your life!
