hi Just wondering did any of ye have inverted or flat nipples and try successfully or otherwise to breastfeed? Did you do anything to try to prepare your nipples before giving birth? Have bought the nipple shells so going to give them a go. Thanks

[color=indigo:mmy5s06h]My friend had flat nipples and the doctor told her to wear these things while pregnant that would help perk up her nipples. They were like little suction things and didn't hurt at all!! I think she bought them in Boots or somewhere like that!![/color:mmy5s06h]
