 Make Flat Breasts Hard Nipples Breastfeeding
 Exclusive breastfeeding is the best decision can be a mother to her baby. But if your nipples flat or inverted into the (inverted nipples), if you can breastfeed normally?
Yup, all women can breastfeed despite flat or inverted nipples, according to Dr. William Sears, Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine. Therefore, the baby feeds on the areola, not on the nipple. When the baby began to put his mouth on the areola and started to suck, it will pull your nipple out. In fact, he can make the hilt "bloom" in the right size so that they can smoke more.
Newborns are able to attach to and suck breast milk properly will be the best solution for the inverted nipple. Most easily if the baby learns to suckle on the first day or two after birth, before your milk out. Swelling tends to make more flat nipples flat, which makes it more difficult babies learn to suck. If you like this, spend more time with your baby early on, so you have plenty of time to practice nursing.
But if you still have difficulty feeding because of the condition of your nipples, please try the following tricks:

Press with your thumb and fingers, and at the same time pushing it back toward the chest. This will lengthen and narrow areola, thereby making it easier to suckle the baby.
3. Use a breast pump to draw out the nipple before breastfeeding. Good-quality electric breast pump you can get in the hospital, and will draw out your nipple without destroying it.

Breast shells have two parts: the back of the hole that allows the nipple to protrude, and the round dome to be mounted on the inside of the bra. Pressure on the shell of the bra will be against the areola, which gradually stretch the attachment and make the nipple stand out.
5. If the baby is still difficult to feed, try using a nipple shield, nipple protectors are worn around the areola and nipple while nursing. Consult with a lactation consultant before using this tool, so that it can provide clues usage without affecting milk production. If you do not know how to use, the nipple shield can reduce milk production.
