Nipple Shower Dance (8 lines)

* A month of 8 lines in honor of this post >> 8 mm



Dodge the water needles.

Dodge them for the love of God.

Soap and splash rinse…

Shimmy to the left.

Half turn to the right.

Make boob umbrellas with my hands.

This is how postpartum bathroom accidents occur…

Doing the raw nipple shower dance.

  1. Oh, girl. I FEEL YOUR PAIN.

    And thank once again for reminding me that I am done having babies.


  2. The scary thing is? I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU SPEAK OF, this nipple shower dance.

    How are you and Baby?

  3. Oh my god, I KNOW. I had forgotten about that but it all came rushing back to me. OW OW OW.

  4. Jen says:

    Oh I remember that pain. Hope it gets better soon.

    Oh, two years later I still remember that dance well! Seems like it took about 4 weeks before my nipples could tolerate my (very gentle) shower flow. Eventually you will nipples of steel and you will laugh in the face of even the strongest hotel shower sprays. (At least until the baby gets some teeth and then it’s sore nipples all over again.) Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG I totally remember that feeling. *shudder*

  7. Oh yeah…I remember those scary showers. I also love that lanolin cream! I’m too lazy to find out what it’s called.

    I’m sorry…I laughed. But I SO know your pain…literally. It sucks! Ah…can’t stop. The boob umbrellas are my fave….I do that too!

    Oh my. I can’t decide if it’s extremely funny or pathetically sad that I not only know exactly what you mean … but that I can also feel you pain. Literally. Breastfeeders should be nominated for Sainthood these days.

    I’ll come hold your baby, and your nipples. I’m a good holder.

  11. OMG…I totally forgot about how my shower tried to slice my nipples off. At least that’s what it felt like! Hang in there. Love that someone offered to hold your nipples…awkward.

  13. Oh. my god. the memories you just brought back.



    So much of it is painful.

    It is just like a healing warrior.

    This is great. It’s been four years since I nursed but you took me back. Thanks for the laugh!
