I had an inverted nibble. Get a nibble shield that will help to hold the nibble up while nursing. Also you wont have an issue with cracked or bleeding nibbles. With me after a while I didn't need it and I no longer have an inverted nipple. I did have to ween my oldest off the shield which was a bit difficult. Second didn't need a shield. I nursed two girls until at least 18 month with little difficulties past the first 6 weeks. Also it sounds like there was more going on then just the inverted nibble. Get stubborn and creative, and something will work.
