  • no i didnt mean shes gonna have a huge mouth!!!im sure all will be fine,look at how huge some of the bottle teats are and dummys.try not to worry about it xxx
  • Hi hun, just wanted to let you know i have huge nipples (as well as huge boobs lol) and neither of mine ever had a problem latching on. Baby will take as much of the nipple as she needs, and the midwives in the hospital will check for you if you ask and make sure she's latched on. Breast shape or size really doesnt matter, your baby will adapt to you, so dont worry!
  • Hi tinkerbell83, don't panic! I have quite big (as in, long) nipples and breastfeeding has been very easy for us - no one even showed us how to do it, she just latched on. In fact I quite often think this is the reason why Lily took to it so well.
  • My nipples are huge too, my hubby keeps laughing at them.

    I wouldn't worry, the reason our nipples get bigger is because the baby's eyesight isn't very good at first so it's to help the baby see them better. If anything this will help your baby feed better!
