Cracked and bleeding nipple. Bring on the lanolin.
Speaking of nipples, Katie has been understandably curious when I feed Zuzu. It’s also led her to discover her own nipples. We’re trying as hard as we can to explain things to her in a way that gives her a healthy understanding of her body, but the first time it came up, I had to think really hard how best to answer her. One time, she was walking into the apartment from the car holding her shirt up and I realized she was trying to nurse her teddy bear. When I whispered to Eric what she was doing, he laughed- it really is the most adorable thing. All I said to her was, we don’t hold our shirts up in public.
