In brief: Inverted nipples

Lots of new mom have the same frusttration.
There are nipple shields to facilitate baby sucking on the breasts to be able to breastfeed. Depending on the degreeof inversion, it takes short or longer time but th ekey is to make sure the baby keeps sucking a tthe brest even if it si wiht the nipple shields.
