I am breast feeding and have inverted nipples. When done nursing, they do look like a new tube of lipstick. Is baby still latching and eating ok?

In brief: Probably

Inverted nipples usually do not interfere.
The efficiency is best judged by the baby's response-sleeping comfortably, diaper wetness and -over time- weight gain.
