It can't be that bad, can it?

Welcome to the Carnival of Breastfeeding. I participated last July, and once again this month's theme is breastfeeding humor. I really don't have much funny or interesting things to say about my own experiences, but here is another one from someone I know:

My friend in Brazil wanted to wean her daughter, but her daughter (probably 18 months at the time) just wasn't ready. One of the things she tried was applying a paste from the boldo leaf, known for its bitter taste, onto the nipples. Soon after her daughter started nursing, she pulled off and said, "ruim", which means bad or yucky in Portuguese. Then she went right back to nursing!

Here are the other participants of the carnival:
