You could also try Lansinoh's Latch Assist. It's a device that draws the nipple out just before feeding. It can be a little messy but It worked to draw my nipples out. I have flat, inverted nipples and wore the shells for the last half of my pregnancy and after her birth. They helped a lot to draw my nipples out but the latch assist really pulled them out just before nursing. My daughter still would not breastfeed but it had nothing to do with my nipples at that point. You can check out the latch assist by clicking the link below. Good luck mama!
