hihi all lovely mummies and mtb...me new to motherhood 2 ; )
just went to my gynae and she told me that my nipples are short..hence will be a prob for future bf....she told me to massage, press and pull out the nipple gently everyday during shower...does this method really works??
thx for yr advise ; )
so where can i get this? guardian pharmacy?
kiddy palace got sell too.
happiebb, how may months are you preg? its not adviseable to use the nipplette in late stage of preg as it might trigger contraction so its better for you to check with the LC first before using it. i have one to let go. PM me if you're interested.
one of my nipples is partially inverted and partially flat. i've managed to latch my boys but it takes lots of practices for both mother and child. in addition, the baby might also prefer the other breast since its easier to latch on. thus the determination and perservance to continue to breastfeed is very important. do also ensure that you get all the help you can get from the LC when you deliver. i'm still using football hold to latch quan on the breast which i'm having problem with.
at what month during our pregnancy, can we use the Avent nipplette..?
the LC mentioned that its better to start using around week 20. i didnt get to use as i had premature contraction and was not suitable to use.
I too have inverted nipples on one side of my breast. Problem I faced after my boy was born was that he simply REFUSED to latch on to that breast. Rather, he would favour the other one with the 'normal' nipple, and would fuss and scream should I try to latch him on the inverted nipple.
So no choice but to use only one breast to feed him and express the other at every feeding. But, once he reached 1 1/2 months, my little one has no problem latching on to the problematic breast as his suction power has become better or he has simply learn the art of breast feeding?
Still recommendation of the nipple shield will be a much better solution provided one can use it.
