What do you do when it's 2 am and you can't sleep? I am guessing it's not this!

Yes that is what you think it is. I couldn't sleep tonight and was thinking about work. I decided that I needed a cloth breast model for teaching but was not willing to spend $50+ of my own money for one. So I decided to make my own. This is a very rough first draft but I think I should be able to make a nice teaching model for work.

Very nice! That should help alot of new mommies learn how to breastfeed! Nice sculpture!

Nope! That's most definitely NOT what I do! I think you are one of the very few people in the world who would do this.

Good execution though.

[[[Are you going to put a little bag of water inside so you can squirt people with it?]]]

Umm... I'm probably ignorant here, but really, why do you need a model? I could ask a lot of obvious questions here, but how hard can it be to figure out something mammals have been doing for eons? Do you think we humans make things too hard on ourselves?

I think it's great that you were able to make something to help you with work. I'm sure you made it for just pennies, but again, why is it necessary?!

Please just scratch my prior comment as being rude and insensitive!

I've realized that I learn differently than others. I loved my Lactation Consultant for the support she offered, I just never needed much by way of practical application for nursing. I am very glad she was there though. The support she provided (especially through weekly Mom's Groups) was invaluable for the encouragement it provided in a bottle-feeding world!

I'm feeling very sheepish and sorry for being so rude... :*(

I am not sure what to say here so I guess.... Nice Boob! Given that I am not a sleeper by nature and have spent many a night wide awake I can assure you that you are correct in your guess that this is not something I do. I might just have to start. Maybe I can sew me a perfect me (no lumpy stuffing)!

Look at the knitting pattern I just found... reminded me of this project of yours.
