I am a mother of 13 days old boy. my nipples haven't come out properly so he is not able to latch properly. I am using artificial nipples right now. plzz suggest what can be done so that​ my nipples come out properly


Sonali Shivlani Pl advise.


u should consider lactation consultation.  you can book one via Babychakra itself


Some mothers use nipple shield to help in feeding. Do try that. But you may find that inconvenient. Do try expressing milk as that will also help in nipple formation. All the best new mommy. Please let us know on the progress and if you need anything

take a large syringe without needle...and just create a vaccum with nipple..try it again and again...it comes out properly.

Sonali Shivlani

A syringe can actually be quite painful. You may want to consider getting a nipple extractor. It's available by various brands in baby stores a s relatively inexpensive. It works with gentle suction to help form the nipples. Using a nipple shield is a solution however it will be difficult to get the baby off the habit for the same. So be cautious.

will breast pump help in extracting my nipples out?
