a friend of mine is TTC and with her first she had difficulty BFing because of inverted nipples - so she EPed for some time, then quit. I remember someone here posting a link for some massages you can do in pregnancy to help coax out your nipples.

Anyone know what I am talking about? Can someone point me in te right direction?

I had flat nipples. I did read about massage, I think on LLL?

I also used breast shells on the recommendation of my midwife for the last 6 weeks of pregnancy. I think they helped a tiny bit? I wore them in my bra with thicker breast pads over them to smooth out the lines.
