I have one inverted nipple and have been told different things by different doctors. I'm 2 weeks out from my due date and want to get as much info as possible so I can exclusively breastfeed once my baby gets here. This is what I've been told so far:
My old midwife said I needed to start pumping before giving birth to help pull it out. My current ob/gyn said to talk to the lactation consultant at the hospital but that I would probably have to feed on one side and pump off the inverted side. The lactation consultant recommended wearing a nipple shield an hour at a time a couple time a day to help the nipple "pop" out, which I have been doing and seems to be working. But I've read some of the post about using ns's to actually feed and want to try to avoid needing it to actually bf.
I'm just getting confused with all this conflicting advice and was hoping you guys could help sort it all out and let me know what worked for you verses what is a waste of time?
