Father’s role strongly proved in increasing the success of breastfeeding process, but in reality many fathers are still not implementing its role in the process of breastfeeding (breastfeeding father’s role) because of father’s education and the assumption of breastfeeding is mother’s responsibilities. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of the father prenatal education toward breastfeeding father’s role. This study used post test only control group design. 30 samples were taken by purposive sampling which further divided into control and treatment groups by simple random. Breastfeeding father’s role was measured by a questionnaire and the data were analyzed by independent t test. The results showed breastfeeding father’s role rate and standard deviation in the treatment group was 15.40 ± 2.558, while in the control group 9.80 ± 4.212. Different test treatment and control group obtained the value p = 0,000 which means there was a significant effect of education toward breastfeeding father’s role between the treatment group and the control group. The nurse recommended to educate pregnant women prenatal classes which was devoted to the father (husband) as an alternative solution to improve the success of exclusive breastfeeding program.
