    I don’t immediately know the answer to solve this paradox. I noticed another difference between the toy model and the actual nucleus. In the toy model the monopole shift gets smaller in magnitude when increasing the radius of the nucleus (the correction is proportional to 1/l), while the monopole shift for the actual nucleus grows in magnitude if we increase the radius of the nucleus (proportional to mean root square).

    The only thing I can think of is that in the toy model we have added an extra negative charge (-epsilon) while in the actual nucleus the total charge remains the same.
