This week on the Milk Minute, your favorite hosts talk all about…you guessed it, nipples. Heather’s bump has been in the spotlight but today they’re shining a light on different kinds of bumps. Maybe you’ve wondered, “What are those bumps on my nipples? Should I pop them?” (Spoiler alert: you shouldn’t!) “Does milk come out of those bumps? What exactly is an areola?”
Maureen and Heather answer all of these questions and more when it comes to those two extra sensitive milk dispensers on your chest. Tune in for an episode on anatomy and learn more about how your body is incredibly designed to facilitate breastfeeding.
