I have like, really small nipples...I thought pregnancy might make them bigger but nope
Will i still be able to breastfeed?!

I would be afraid my nipples would be to tiny for LO's mouth?!

No the nipple size don't affect breastfeeding, so you should be fine

Yes of course you can still nurse. You might be told to pump and feed often to draw your nipples out more

You'll actually find that your nipples will grow bigger (like, taller I guess) when you start nursing.

I am the complete opposite LOL as PP has stated nipple size does not matter. As long as you've got milk then it's good to go.

I had tony nipples with my DS n i found nursing really difficult if im honest, they jus wudnt erect big enuff so he cud even find them was such a struggle tryna get him to latch so i used to blow on em n make em cold to get em up a lil bit n then he latched, this time tho ive gt like permenently erect nips LOL n they're bigger so hopin this time will be more successful. Try pumpin to stimulate them x

My nipples were tiny before I got pregnant... I mean to the point of pretty much not existing :/ but they've grown to what I would call "normal sized" now lol. Maybe yours will grow a bit once baby arrives and milk comes through? But really it shouldn't make a difference. I'm sure you will be fine trying to BF

XxX
