Answer: Hi dear, Flat nipples do not usually interfere with breastfeeding. Most newborns can latch on to flat nipples without much of a problem. And, as long as your baby can latch on to your breast properly, he or she will be able to get your nipples out. You can do the following: 1- yes nipple shield or shells acts as fake nipples and can help babies latch on that 2- there are V- shells or C- shells that can draw your nipples out 3 - if flat nipples are due to breast engorgement,try to keep warm compress 4- breast pump can also elevate the nipples 5 - you can meet latching expert or paediatrician to help you in latching in such cases Make sure your baby is well fed by counting the number of wet nappies

Question: Can I breastfeed with inverted or flat nipples
Answer: Dear if the baby is taking the feed and is not having any problems then yes you can. It has been 1 month if it was causing problem your baby would have made it a point to you by being cranky and not taking the feed. Also I have heard that using manual breastpump just before the feed will pull out the nipple and you can breastfed your baby after that. This would make it easier for you. Nipple shield is also a good option. Hope it helps.
