Causes And Treats Inverted Nipples During Pregnancy?
I’m 8 months pregnant but the nipple of the right breast is not showing up, will it be able to breastfeed the child later? or what steps should I take?
Hello Cut may,
The condition of the breasts can change at any time sometimes as well as the condition of the nipples which can appear or sometimes do not appear. This condition does not need to be too worried about the same as those with small breasts, as long as with the correct breastfeeding technique, the baby will be able to suckle normally.
You can also prepare yourself for breastfeeding starting from pregnancy such as by:
Find out information about lactation and how to breastfeed Maintain nipple hygiene Pay attention to nutritional intake Perform relaxation techniques Prepare breastfeeding equipment such as special bras, special clothes Communicate with partners to support the breastfeeding process Things to pay attention to when there are changes in the breasts and require further examination, including if breast swells and is different from one another, pain occurs in the breast, abnormal fluid discharge from the breast, changes in the skin of the breast or if a lump appears in the breast. These things should be examined by a doctor to find out the cause and carry out further treatment.
