Nipple Size

RG - April 28

I've never had large nipples...but my hubby seems to think they are getting a little bigger...has this happened to anyone else? I'm curious because I do want to br___t feed and wondering if small nipples will cause me to have problems brest feeding. I might even try to post this in the 3rd trimester section too. Thanks for any input or help.

I'd like to know the answer too...I'm in the same boat at RG.

yep. with my first baby they got bigger as my b___sts did. Also, they turned a bit darker, and the area that was pink and had turned to a more browny colour seemed to go more past the areola the more pregnant i got.

oh ya, the size of your nipples won't make a difference in breatfeeding. Unless your nipples are inverted, you should be fine. I actually had a problem b___stfeeding for the first week or two because my baby's mouth was smaller than my nipple and couldn't fit all the areola in there. but he still ate GREAT and gained 1 1/2lbs within 10days (he was a little guy to begin with, only 6lbs)

I got teeny-tiny nipples (shhh, don't tell anybody - that's embarra__sing) but anyway, I was still able to b___stfeed my first child for two years. Nipple size doesn't matter.
