    So ladies, I breastfed my daughter and managed for around 3 weeks before I couldn't give her enough to fill her - I could only use one side as I had an inverted nipple on the other and she couldn't latch on very well.
    Despite my best efforts and a lot of crying I eventually admitted defeat and turned to formula.

    After deciding it wasn't looking like we weren't having a second child after 4 years of TTC, I bit the bullet and got a much wanted boob job - literally just in April this year and my inverted nipple has just about fully corrected itself without any surgical help so is now in full working order :)

    I've since found out we're expecting number 2 :dance:
    I'm hoping I'll be able to successfully breastfeed with the correction of the nipple now but has anyone else had any issues after having a boob job?

    PP xXx

    I had boob job before i had child. And i was scared that breastfeeding my LO will be problem. But everything went well. Actually i remember before my surgery i asked my surgeon at Forme clinic if it will be safe. And the answer was yes. I breastfed for 2 years and everything was fine.

    I had a boob job years ago ( under muscle), had my first one year ago but never succeed to put him to latch on because of my flattish/introverted nipples so I only expressed for a couple of months and topped-up with formula.


    I am expecting my second now and really hope will be able this time , I will put more effort in this. If your nipples are corrected now can't see a reason why you wouldn't be able to breastfeed x
