Don't know if anyone's noticed but Heather is expecting down Walford way.
There's a petition to the BBC to suggest they make her a breastfeeder, doesn't have to be in-yer-face, just a few comments here and there and not showing her slaving over a sink full of bottles or trying to work a steriliser. No harm done eh?
It's here if anyone fancies signing it.

I'd forgotten she was pregnant, must be about due now.

Done it - lovely idea smile

Now, who's Heather? I lost touch when Ian Beale was still a catch...

I predict she will breastfeed for a whole month! Ages then hmm

Heather (aka Evv) is the fat unconfident friend of hard-faced Wotsit. She is pg by Gary or Minty (I forget which, or it may still be a surprise.) She will be on her own and trying to stand up to this domineering best mate in the process. I think they are trying to let her 'flower' and grow up a bit through motherhood but this being Eastenders it will all end in tears as soon as she thinks she has achieved something by herselfsad.

i bet she has it on xmas day

And calls it Holly. Oh no, she's a George Michael fan so it will be George or Georgina.

Think she's already decided to call it Holly.

Have a friend who has a friend who works at BBBC and apparently Darren is the father...???

what is the betting that the birth is really traumatic. Personally think they have shown how much can go wrong with birth enough and should maybe try showing breastfeeding problems with Heather overcoming them so women realise they are not alone.

Darren??? So all her moony looks at the back of Gary's head for the last few months were mere red herrings?

nappyzonecantrunfortoffee Thu 01-Oct-09 19:10:51

no i think she will have it in the toilet bowl literally in the vic.

It's been going round on facebook too so signed it a few days ago.

DARREN??????????? (thought I'd join in grin) Not the most likely of couples!

It is about time that we had a 'normal' breastfeeder on the Sqeeeare, although Honey's second baby was breastfed though only showed her 'doing it' for about a week (during National Breastfeeding Awareness Week) with Ian being aghast, and then the subject disappeared. She could still be breastfeeding, who knows!

ParanoidAtAllTimes Mon 05-Oct-09 07:02:08

Done- it's about blimin time!

Niknak21 Mon 05-Oct-09 07:21:15

The problem with her breastfeeding is it's probably not what ladies who live in the eastend do and they like to be 'true to life' don't they? But I do agree she should, and her character is portrayed as the mother earth type when it comes to kids, so heres hoping.

Of course she's not going to be a breastfeeder!

LoveBuckets Tue 06-Oct-09 09:35:19

Well it might not work this time but the seed will be planted. Would suit Ronnie maybe if she ever manages to have her Danielle Mk2 - I reckon she would go incredibly PFB and lentilweaverish in her madness wouldn't she?grin
