    How could she!! Has she no idea how many unemployed wet nurses there are in Britain right now?

    There must be rather a lot……..most of the young women around here seem to be continually pregnant.

    A male student was taking the mid-term test in his “Human Health” class.
    .
    The question he was to answering was, “List four benefits of breast milk.”
    .
    The first three points he listed were:
    .
    1) No bottles to clean and sterilize.
    2) Much better for the babies’ health than cows’ milk.
    3) Available at need.
    .
    But he could not, for the life of him, come up with a fourth point.
    .
    Finally, with time running out he thought of something!
    .
    4) Available in attractive containers.

    Response to “breast-feeding—” Over-reaction. (BIG TIME.)

    Response to media-over-coverage— Completely appropriate!

    I like Vic’s eyes in panel two…

    Biggest eyes ever, I think.

    Just wondering, but not enough to look it up, whether bottle feeding was common back in the Victorian Age.

    There was a point in time, though I cannot remember the period, when women of the higher classes purposely exposed a breast to show they were not breast feeding. It was quite the fashion and can be seen in paintings of the time.

    Wow. You don’t usually see that many nipples in a comic strip; not even in “Love Is.”

    I believe the baby won’t be king until 2176 the 22nd Century if I heard the story correctly.
    And he’ll still be able to watch New episodes of Doctor WHO. ☺

    I got curious about Victorian baby bottles. Now I’m gonna have nightmares.
    Let me share:

    I was just reading a bio on QV and it said that she personally loathed the concept of breast-feeding and wasn’t any too happy with the little rug-rats to begin with. When they got to a certain age (I forget), children were so much more attractive and she was able to deal with them. Other than her son, of course. (Oddly enough, she may have been breast-fed by her mother!)

    In the second panel that’s Vicky “breast-facing”.

    Oh, I certainly hope she does get to nurse him – for at least six months! It’s better for both the baby & the mother – but especially the baby. Physical health, mental/emotional health, IQ points – the works!

    @TheDOCTOR....

    He’d have to live until the age of 163 first, which is a big ask of anyone, even a royal.
