R. tells me a coworker related a story of such a bad boob as a result of a restless kid that unlatched and relatched constantly that the nipple cracked, bled, scabbed. Kid sucked the scabs off to get at the milk. Excruciating, needless to say. R., compassionate, thoughtful man that he is, refrained from asking the questions that might have elicited what she did and did not try to determine the cause of the restlessness. It is far too late now, and would be cruel.
