This highly technical metaplastic term, was submitted by Paula Superti.  Lactomangulation occurs most frequently in pre-school and kindergarten environments however it is known to occur at all levels of educational institutions. It is observed when after several unsuccessful attempts at opening the v-shaped, glued opening on a milk container, one is left with a rubbery amorphous-shaped opening that is unlikely to allow maximum beverage flow. Lactomangulation could also be used in the medical community to describe a condition that occurs in breastfeeding mothers when baby's first teeth come in. (Originally posted September 24, 2003)
