Twisted?: Not sure what you mean by twisted, but almost all women can breast feed. Sometimes if women have inverted nipples it can be difficult, but even then, most of the time it can work out. See a lactation consultant if there is one in your area. Search for one here: http://www.Ilca.Org/i4a/pages/index.Cfm?Pageid=3432.
