How does the milk come out?!?!


OMG I cannot believe I am asking this - but after close inspection of my nipples (which I am becoming obsessed with the changes in!!) - where does the milk actually come out of???

Is it a singular hole in the middle or is it more of a watering can effect?!?!

I cannot see where it will come from as there is nothing obvious there!!
Once the milk starts coming will the hole(s) be more apparent??

thanks ladies and if it is several holes - is it over the whole surface area of the nipple (which seems to be the surface area of a small continent at the moment) or just the tip bit???

Usually just the tip bit, but I've also got a duct on my areola, which is a bit strange!

I get the watering can effect when I express, and it also makes a hissing noise!

Breastfeeding is amusing

Also, there are some amazing videos of breastfeeding here:

It can be hard to imagine breastfeeding if you haven't seen it, so the clips are awesome!

Probably should have put a warning, they aren't really safe for work!

I don't know if it is just like me, but the milk comes out in quite a steam, so makes a quiet hissing noise. Trying to liken it to something, but I can't remember what. Very strange!
