Title says it all. Was wondering if there was anything anyone had tried to improve nipple shape during pregnancy. I was told part of my problem was flattened nipples (I am quite dubious about this as they seem normal enough to me). Anyhoo, when LO was just born I started using breast shells before feeds to draw the nipple out more. These were really awkward to use as the milk kept sloshing everywhere and seemed such a waste. I found out later that these are maybe more suitable during pregnancy. HV also recommended some sort of suction device to use which made me feel a bit squeamish. I had a rotten old labour last time and ended up needing blood transfusions and stuff so was also quite weak for a while which also contributed to lack of success. Ended up with a baby losing too much weight and then switched to formula. Just thinking if things could improve with No 2.
