Nipple Size

8 Replies
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 1st and 3rd trimester section too. Thanks for any input or help.

Mine have DEFINITELY gotten bigger too. I'm like you, they've always been on the smaller side & I was worried about it affecting b___stfeeding, but looks like I won't have to be worrying about that!

Thanks Lynn...I'm only 12 weeks so I'm sure there is more time for them to grow. I read some other posts in 1st Tri that said someone had trouble with them getting too big and the baby having a hard time getting it in it's mouth. Maybe we won't have that problem.

I dont have large nipples also, but my areola's have gotten huge. Kinda weird looking they are no lye like at least 1.75" across. any one else have this?

Every woman is different and all variations are completely normal. The areola especially and usually the nipple too increase in size as your pregnancy progresses - it takes 9 months for your b___sts to complete their readiness for b___st feeding, so if you think they're big now, just wait till bub is born! PS They reckon the larger darker areola serves to catch the baby's eye and trigger his feeding instinct. So it's all good! :-)

your not alone heather.. does anyone know if they go back to normal after pregnancy?

mine are the same, but then nothing in the b___b area has grown yet....maybe when I get to 8 months. My poor kid is going to starve!!
