“Boobs are ONLY for babies! Boobs are ONLY for husbands! Guess what ladies, you are both pretty, so quit screaming about your tits.They’re multipurpose!”
I realize this could be a bit of a controversial topic, and in fact might be the topics that drives me to censorship and a comment policy, but here is hoping that is not the case.
I wanted to write about this because I think something that many people miss is how breastfeeding rhetoric can effect your marriage and relationships. I will probably talk about this more in the future, but for now please enough this latest post:

For some women, they can wear a tight bra or shirt and avoid this, but Bubba will contort his arms and little fingers any way he has to in order to reach a nipple to twiddle.
Despite Bubba’s persistence and determination to twiddle, there have been some things we’ve used that have significantly decreased or completely stopped the twiddling.

“We took Bubba to the doctor during his cold. He spiked a fever of 100 degrees for a few hours during the first part of his sickness and it went away quickly, but since he had a bad cough we did not want to risk missing something important. We did not take him to urgent care or the emergency room because RSV and other dangerous things were going around. Instead, we snagged an appointment with a local pediatrician and took him in.”
