Nipples: Inverted 
    Many mothers are told they have inverted nipples when they are not.
    Here’s a view of really inverted nipples when pressed on either side of the areola: 
    http://www.breastfeedingbasics.com/articles/flat-or-inverted-nipples  

    Here’s information from La leche League on the topic, too… 
    http://www.lalecheleague.org/faq/flat.html  

    Some mothers who truly have inverted nipples can ear a tool such as an Evert-It Nipple Enhancer
         during pregnancy.  As it fills with milk, it is not helpful after delivery. 
 
    After delivery, excessive fluid in the mother's body may make it appear as if she had inverted nipples.  
        Using Reverse Pressure Softening can make the areola and nipple soft and supple
        so baby can form a nipple. Handout (English) (Spanish


Nipple Plugs and Blebs 
        Nipple Blebs, or “milk blisters” appear on the end of nipples.
