In brief: Breast feeding

Despite having small beasts, the glandular elements to produce milk should still function normally and allow you to breast-feed.
Inverted nipples sometimes cause a problem with the infant being able to suckle but breast-feeding is still possible. I would recommend seeing a lactation nurse for some tricks and advice.
