That's what made me upset. The LC said that my nipple looked fine. To me it clearly had a whitish ridge (like a U) all the way across. It wasn't as bad as it normally is because my LO always latches a little better when someone else is watching
I have really small aereolas and was wondering if that is causing the problem. The LC seems to think the latch is good because he has all the aereola in his mouth, but I don't think that's enough, since it really isn't that much breast tissue. Is it harder for women with small aereolas? All the videos I've seen online and all the drawings show women with way larger aereolas. Maybe this means nothing, but I'm starting to think I'm somehow not built right for breastfeeding.
