um.... becaust that's what makes you a mammal?

NomDePlume Mon 28-Feb-05 15:11:28

confused, I thought giving birth to live young made me a mammal ?

misdee Mon 28-Feb-05 15:12:02

i have no idea lol.

Enid Mon 28-Feb-05 15:13:31

cheaper. less hassle. better for baby. helps bonding.

suzywong Mon 28-Feb-05 15:13:41

well that is one criteria but Mammal and Mammary gland, that's a pretty big shout for the reason it's labelled that way

LucyJones Mon 28-Feb-05 15:14:47

because it's free and doesn't need sterilising!!

PiccadillyCircus Mon 28-Feb-05 15:16:28

Because these glands grew and I had to shrink them somehow.

suzywong Mon 28-Feb-05 15:16:36

do I mean criterion?
anyway all of the below as well

LucyJones Mon 28-Feb-05 15:16:59

and it makes your tummy go back to normal quicker

JoolsToo Mon 28-Feb-05 15:17:47

Lucy - breastfeeding doesn't have the monopoly on that I can assure you

Beansmum Mon 28-Feb-05 15:17:59

because it's best for the bean, but if breast and bottle were totally equal I would still choose breast because I am lazy.

OMG I am pro bf and pro a good argument but even i can't get into this one again, still too exhausted from the other thread!!

Misdee give me some of your energy, you're supposed to have just given birth!

Oh alright then... because cows milk is for calves.

misdee Mon 28-Feb-05 15:19:50

keep it light hearted

Fastasleep Mon 28-Feb-05 15:20:58

I was going to say why do people keep posting these threads??? You know that if people don't restrain themselves they can turn into heated arguments within about five minutes!

Fastasleep Mon 28-Feb-05 15:21:29

Then again I really really can't talk about that kind of thing today ...the shaaame.

Enid Mon 28-Feb-05 15:22:11

my boobs got so enormous I had to justify it somehow

Fastasleep Mon 28-Feb-05 15:22:53

Enid! Don't flirt!

Fastasleep Mon 28-Feb-05 15:23:50

(Don't mind me Mondays and Fridays are bad days for me!)

beansprout Mon 28-Feb-05 15:27:21

It's best for Bean and for once in my life, I get to wear a D cup bra!!!

PiccadillyCircus Mon 28-Feb-05 15:33:42

Me too Me too on the D cup bra .

Normally much smaller .

beansprout Mon 28-Feb-05 15:35:17

Shame said bra is so grim though...

Beansmum Mon 28-Feb-05 15:36:56
