  • Not permanent... While using it, your nipples will stretch a lil.. But they will go back to normal.. While you are nursing as well your nipples will change a bit. but will go back to normal after you stop nursing.

  • Right, its not an ignorant question, because if I wouldn't have pumped I wouldn't have known the answer. krazyash is right. They are only stretched out for a little bit after you pump. Then they go back to normal. Its not that big of a deal.

  • It's not ignorant to ask that. Yes, right after you get done pumping your nipples will look long but they will go back shortly. It's just right after.
    Anonymous, that's an ignorant response to someone wanting to know the truth about something.
