Breast feeding are nipples too small ?

Well, I know this may sound weird, but I have been watching.. Breastfeeding videos.. Just to see what to do etc. So, I noticed all of the nipples are bigger than mine!! Oh boy... How can you tell if your nipples are too small? Do they grow after birth?

mmm i do not know. I know mine already seem bigger. Mostly I think cause my boobs have grown so much. But I think they will expand along with your breasts once the milk comes in.

at least thats sounds right????

Everyone has different nipple and breast size and breast feeding is still possible.

I've been watching them too, and I was worried mine were too flat cause the women they get in those videos have those 'Madonna' nipples, lol. But everything worked out great, the human body is amazing when it comes to adapting. But like Ingi said, everyone is different, and if you are fully set on it, it can happen.

LOL! Thats good to know. Yes, I was thinking that with madonna. I have always had large breasts, but never nipples that stuck out like an inch long! I even went to the pharmacy to see if there was something there that would help get madonna nipples, but you're right. I am probably fine Smile
