Does the niplette work?

Does the Niplette really work?

Having flat or inverted nipples, is one particularly common breastfeeding problem, this is something that I myself, struggled with in the beginning too...and was one of the foremost reasons, breastfeeding didn't work out with my first child, my son, Tyler.

When I became pregnant, the second time around I was determined to breastfeed and then found out about the Avent Niplette device. I was very skeptic, but decided that the price was worth it. I also always wanted a more feminine look to my breasts. Breasts without nipples are not always attractive to this case my husband.

So, I bought it and managed to use it for three days only, because of the pain! You won’t believe how magnificently this thing worked. I saw a difference right away. For those that are thinking of buying it, be aware that your nipple might pus and maybe even bleed a little, it is painful but not intolerable. Your nipple heals quite speedily afterwards. They say you need to wear it for three months, but this wasn't necessary in my case. My nipple was about three times the size it was before I used the Niplette.

The Niplette worked for me, I have now, and am still nursing my second child, Lisa...with no problems and she latched on perfectly after birth. I'm really very grateful for this wonderful product.

If you have flat or inverted nipples, this product is certainly worth a try, but also bear in mind that breastfeeding itself will also bring out your nipple after a while. After breastfeeding for about three months, my nipples are again a size larger than what they where after using the Niplette.

I am not an affiliate of this product in any way, I just felt I needed to share my experience with other moms who struggle with similar troubles.

I could not remember where I bought the nipplette, so I searched online (I'm also in South Africa)

I noticed that most of the places are now selling the device for R900 (I bought it for R300 about two years ago. Just search "Avent nipplette, South Africa" for an online store in South Africa that sells then, there are a few.

Maybe if you bought it from an overseas shop, you will pay less.

Just wanted to say, hope you've divorced that man by now. If he really loved you, he'd love your body for how it is.

Everyone has their preference, but that's like disliking you because of the color of your skin or something.

You can't help how you're born. You really deserve better than a shitty husband who puts you down because of your body. Men really don't care about how their actions and words can affect a woman's confidence.

Never let a man control you or make you want to change a part of yourself. I hope you've gotten out of that toxic relationship.

Hi Ki

Thanks. Yes, reading this now makes me realize how manipulated I was back then and brain washed. I've been divorced for over 3 years now. It was a very toxic relationship. And you are very correct. I will never allow any man to make me feel that inferior again.
