In all living groups of mammals, prolonged protection of the developing young is a characteristic strategy of reproduction. Lactation, however, is the only uniquely mammalian characteristic, and all three groups have characteristic adaptations for achieving the transfer of energy from mother to young first via the uterus and placenta, and subsequently via the milk.
