Your Post-Baby "Assets": Love 'em or Hate 'em?


You had a baby. Your boobs got really big. You hear the jokes about how sexy your new cleavage is, but you feel more like a cow than a Playboy model.

Either way, I say embrace your new (if temporary) assets: Treat them with care and kindness and maybe even enjoy them a bit before they deflate.
