Nursing...

Today I am wondering 2 things:

1. Is is possible for an infant to bite off a nipple, and if so, is there a reconstructive surgery for such a tragedy?

2. Can a breast explode?

Yes a infant can suck your nipple off, it actually just happened to someone I know.

I know for people that have had a masectomy they tattoo the nipples back on.

1. Re-nipplefication is a very difficult and costly procedure. One that I hope you don't have to experiance, but I would hightly recommend it!

2. Man I hope not. But I know how you feel. When I look back on when I was nursing, my mind drifts to that Sprite commercial where all the different people collide. (Have you seen that one?) That is how I invision an exploding engorged breast! NOT PLEASANT!

LOLOLOL really that's all that comes to my mind:)
I have never heard of someone needing reconstructive surgery on their nipple..... lololol..... but I'm sure someone out there has made it available, you would have a pretty good reason rather than someone just being like "hey I don't like my nipples... maybe I'll have them reconstructed!?!" LOLOLOL! OH man I needed this laugh, thanks girl:)
