NIPLASH n. [Fr. nipple + whiplash]: When a baby decides not to take a break from nursing and suddenly and energetically jerks her head around to look up down and all around the room (still firmly latched onto your boob). Submitted by Jill Kravetz of Brookline, MA.
(I’m in LOVE with this word. I know I said that “neomamma” belonged in the dictionary the other day. But, if I can only make one request, I’ll take it back and submit Jill’s word instead.)
