lol!!

 

“The Hooters Girls Present Breast is Best!”

“Breastfeeding Basics bought to you by Hawiian Tropic”

 

I’m not PG, but if we were all pretending to breastfeed dolls and you were pretending to breastfeed a cat, I don’t think I’d feel right looking at you weird.  I think your cat is fine.

Hehe I would see if you could get a used doll from a second hand shop if not the cat will do the job.

@Katnisseverdeen:  I agree (: check out second hand stores but if not I’m sure the cat is fine and it’ll get a lot of laughs I’m sure. It definitely wouldn’t make me uncomfortable or make me think you were a weirdo 😉

@heathaah:  I think it’s just as weird to pretend to breastfeed a babydoll as a cat. I mean, it’s not like you can practice latching with either one! You’ll just be checking posture and how to support the head, right? So go ahead and bring the cat, as long as it’s about the right size (not a beanie baby). I think that’s hilarious. Why buy a doll just for a class?

I’d take the cat. I’m sure they’re just teaching you head positioning, which you can just as easily do with a stuffed cat as a doll. Besides, it’ll make a good story 🙂

I vote this thread title as the best of all time.

I was a little scared to open it, tbh. Not sure what I was going to find!

@hisgoosiegirl:  me too! but I’m glad I opened it and say bring the cat. If I went to a Boyfriend or Best Friend class and someone brought a cat, I’d definetely try to become their best friend instantly. 

And also, do they just expect everyone to have dolls lying around the house? I don’t have any and also no relatives/kindergardens near me where I could just steal one for a day. I definitly wouldn’t want to go out of my way and buy one.. 

Maybe you could string a thread around a potato sack so it’s divided into “head” and “body” if you feel uncomfortable with the cat.

My firrst impression…WTF lol.  The thread title freaked me right out. 

I am sure, as long as the instructor and classmates have some sense of humor, you will be fine with your cat…

I thought this was going to be a discussion about a “My strange addiction” episode LOL!

I say bring the cat – no point in spending money on something new!

If I was in your position the best I could do would be a stuffed manatee.  I say go for the cat, why buy a doll just for the class?

I agree. This is cracking me up.

OP, I don’t have any real-world insight, except that I’d think it was cool and funny for you to bring the cat, not weird.
