Flat or Inverted Nipples
Many women have flat or inverted nipples. This can often make it difficult for babies to get a proper latch on.
Here are some tips to help breastfeeding go smoothly.
Just as most women's breasts grow during pregnancy, there's also the chance that inverted nipples will extend themselves as well.
If thatís not the case some women wear breast shells that apply pressure to the areola and help lure out the nipple.
You can also try Hoffman exercises. Simply put your thumb and index finger on either side of your nipple and gentle pull it outwards, repeating this procedure five times a day.
Using a breast pump can also be helpful in extending your nipples.
