Answer: Hello dear It is very difficult for a newborn baby to latch flat and small nipples. But there should not be any problem 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 draw your nipples out. There are lots of techniques that are useful in dealing with flat nipples. These include: 1. Using a pump to draw out the nipple before offering it to the baby. 2. Stimulating your nipple with a cold compress to make the nipple protrude. 3. Pulling back on the areola before you latch the baby on. 4. Finding a nursing position that allows you to support your breast and the baby’s head while working on the correct latch. Galact granules is ayurvedic powder. Have this twice a day with milk.(2 teaspoons in a cup of milk). Consult your Gynocologist she may give some tablets for a couple of days to initiate lactation. In first few days very little amount of milk is enough for your baby so don't worry momma !! Latch him whenever he wants the more he sucks the more is the milk production.
