Inverted nipples, please help!!

My sister's nipples are inverted and she doesn't know what to do, today is her second day and the baby is starving (her tummy even makes noises). She is giving up and might go buy some formula, I'm a strong believer in breastfeeding and to me the first days are the most important ones. Advice anyone, help?

  • I had to use a nipple shield. The hospital gave me regular ones but I had to so buy the small sized ones. They should sell them at babies r us or a medical supply place. Tell her its OK to supplement with formula so the baby isnt going without anything but to keep trying and if she cant get the baby to latch then she can always pump and bottle feed. GL!!
