Edit: sorry just realised this came across quite abrupt. I mean no offense, I just get exasperated sometimes with this view that men need their partners to tell them how to be a parent

So I learnt by experience, and he would have too if he had done all the feeds up until then.
It also comes back to in so many cases there's no right way, just a preferred way of doing things. 2 minute noodles for breakfast is more of a common sense thing I'd say though.

I do believe that big parental decisions need to be made by both parents. But meal choices are a funny thing. Some parents are out of the home all week during the day and are often unaware of what happens during this time in regards to portions and food options.
When dd2 was in hospy for a week - I was with her and as it was sudden I didn't pack meals as I did for dd1 when dd2 was born.
Dd1 had combinations of food that I would not do. And if she didn't eat it then DH would offer alternative after alternative. It wasn't what I would do but she survived.
Ie I was out yest and left a chicken curry/rice for lunch for both of them. Turned out they went to a park via a bakery and had sausage rolls for lunch instead.
