I've been BFing non-stop for almost 6 years, including tandem-feeding for 3 years. I had flat nipples at the start. BFing changed that quickly. But now my nipples are positively pendulous. Once upon a time, they would 'ping' back at the end of the feed and have a normal shape. Now the stretch just stays stretched.
I'm expecting to BF for at least a few more years yet. Is there any hope that my nipples will no longer seem permanently erect/stretched?
I have bf'd all 4 of my kids until they self-weaned at various ages from 3.5 to OMG. I tandem nursed twice.
My nipples were also slightly flat at first and now are somewhat stretchy. My youngest is almost 10 and has been weaned for around 3 yrs. So I daresay your nipples will recede slightly but not altogether. They will be beautifully lived in.
