  • They will probably stay that way, at least it was for me. If it makes you feel better my husband calls them Silver Dollar Nipples ! LOL doesn't bother me as long as he likes them, who else is going to see them..!!!

  • They will stay the same until you stop lactating. The reason they are like that is so that baby can easily find them lol.

  • they will stay the same, mine grew HUGE and they have stayed that way- my husband hasn't seemed to mind though- they didn't stay AS dark, but they are def. darker :)

  • I have heard that they dont go back. I know right. I was like please let this be a rumor. But heck. As long as hubby dont mind I guess I can deal with it.

  • they get a lil bit lighter after your milk is gone. Depending on the person they may go back and the may stay that size. women in my family either stay huge or get flat so its fifty fifty.

  • I've read that they stay the new size but get lighter or the other way around, although from what the other responders are saying, it's the size that stays.
