No: Inverted nipples, if they are congenital, are because of short milk ducts. They have to be released in order to bring out the nipples. If they are inverting gradually, it could be related to a breast disease such as breast cancer. You will need to consult your gynecologist.

Breast Feeding.: The good news is the most of the time - the nipples will function fine during breast feeding.
