Pull on the nipple gently when it is erect to encourage it to stay so. This procedure is the more common of the two types. Usually, you will not experience any change in nipple sensation after the procedure. However, if this is not possible a breast pump or other suction device may be used just before breastfeeding to help to draw out inverted nipples.

In some cases, an inverted nipple may temporarily protrude when it is stimulated. Explore facts, causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and home remedies.
