Amanda says approximately 10-20 percent of women have inverted nipples, which she says is simply “a version of normal”.
While some women (and men) have two inverted nipples, many have one inverted one, and one normal one.
In Jade’s case, she says having short nipple length was a complicating factor, but that this doesn’t affect everyone with inverted nipples.
While she says some inverted nipples revert when pregnant, even if your nipples stay inverted through pregnancy and after delivery, Amanda reassures you should still be able to breastfeed.
“Babies latch onto the breast, not the nipple,” she says.
