I've been trying to breastfeed my twins, but it's not going well. One of the reasons is that my one breast has an inverted nipple, and it's always cracked or breeding, and breastfeeding is very painful. The other side is perfectly fine.
So, I was wondering whether I can continue to breastfeed only one side. Does anyone know if it's possible? One can dry up, but the other can produce milk? If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks!

the cracking, pain, etc. can be dealt with a lanolin cream. it really worked great for me. i used a nipple shield and it really worked for me, i would get some (forgive me, i can't remember what it's called, but it was 100% pure medical grade lanolin). it worked great.i would keep trying to feed from that side to avoid engorgement and possibly infection. you can also consult a lactation consultant....call your ob/gyn or the hospital and they will refer you!
